Plot – Spoilers:
What do you do when you are told you should feel guilty about something you feel you don’t need to feel guilty about, and yet, you feel guilty anyway.

As a teenager, Jan and his friend kidnapped a little boy who ended up dead. Their motivation might have been petty theft, boredom or something more malicious. We don’t know and it appears, neither does Jan. He’s released earlier than his buddy for being in the good books of the church chaplain and finds a job as a church organist in the outside world.

As Jan tries to wade through his new world of shackled freedom, you as the viewer, like him, are suspicious of everyone and how much they know about his past. A female pastor who sees everything that can’t be remedied as being part of God’s plan, takes an interest in Jan who struggles to reciprocate because she has a young boy, about the same age as the kid he’d kidnapped. And so, Jan lugs himself around like a scab, wary of anyone that might pick at him and peel open the wound he’s so terrified to look at.

I have yet to watch this, I’m dismayed by the invidious exegesis below though. Not an iota of consanguine material pertaining to the film.

I need to make a confession. Once, when I was helping my friend remove squatters from her estate, I committed a crime. One of the squatters had a pet white rat in a cage, it was a domestic-friendly thing, to be honest. I gently opened its cage and lifted the rodent out, it snuffled and squeaked contentedly. I took it out to the yard, ready to deftly set it free over the fence. To my horror and dismay, my hand lurched aggressively, hurling the hefty rodent right up into the air and over yonder somewhere. I heard this god-almighty sound, of impact, of a small body connecting with aluminum.
Did I commit animal abuse?
Did I commit murder?
Was the rodent still alive?

Just as food can evoke powerful emotions and memories, the characters in “Troubled Water” grapple with their own emotional struggles and past mistakes. The act of sharing a meal can symbolize connection and reconciliation, much like the characters’ journeys towards redemption and forgiveness in the film.

Just like a well-prepared dish requires careful consideration of ingredients and flavors, the movie carefully crafts its characters and their interactions. The layers of complexity in both the characters and the narrative can be likened to the intricate layers of flavors in a thoughtfully composed meal.

Moreover, the idea of nourishment and sustenance can be extended to the emotional nourishment the characters seek throughout the film. Just as a hearty meal can provide comfort and satisfaction, the characters in “Troubled Water” seek solace and resolution in their pursuit of redemption.

While the movie itself might not delve into the culinary world, it’s fascinating how themes of nourishment, connection, and emotional fulfillment can be connected to both food and the intricate storytelling of “Troubled Water.”

The movie had a somewhat somber tone, and I found the characters’ decisions and actions a bit hard to follow at times. The pacing seemed a bit slow, and it made it challenging for me to stay engaged in the story. While the themes of redemption and forgiveness were present, I didn’t feel as emotionally invested in the characters’ journeys as I thought I might. The film didn’t quite evoke the intended impact on me, and I felt somewhat detached from the characters’ experiences. I understand that some people appreciate the thought-provoking nature of the movie, but personally, it left me feeling a bit down and unsatisfied. It’s possible that the film just didn’t align with my preferences and tastes.Certainly, As I mentioned, the movie’s pacing and character dynamics didn’t quite resonate with me. Additionally, while the film explored themes of redemption and forgiveness, I felt that the execution didn’t fully capture the emotional depth I was expecting. The storytelling approach seemed a bit disjointed at times, making it a challenge for me to fully immerse myself in the narrative. I appreciate thought-provoking films, but in this case, the complexity of the characters’ actions and motivations sometimes left me feeling disconnected. On a positive note, the cinematography and direction had their moments of brilliance, creating visually striking scenes that added some artistic value to the film. However, the overall viewing experience left me wanting more cohesion and emotional resonance. In the end, I believe that movies can be quite subjective,… Read more »

Niggers smell because they never wash. I think it would be wonderful if niggers that hate America would move back to Africa. The crime rate in America would drop to near zero.

The name of the movie is “Troubled Waters.” The name of the comment section should be “Troubled little gay cry baby assholes like to junk up the comment section.” If you are a troubled little gay cry baby asshole respond quickly you little fucking lovelorn cowards.

This film is odd. Some of the scenarios don’t jibe with how people would normally react in these situations. Why is the mother Agnes pushing a four year old child with boots on in a stroller meant for a one year old? The prison beating was lame. In real life he would have got beaten much more severely than that. Jan/Thomas plays the keyboards better than Don Airey and Jon Lord combined even though he has two broken fingers taped together. He could probably play “Mr. Crowley” with his hands tied behind his back. Trine Dyrholm who portrays Agnes was perfect for this role. She has the ability to look beautiful, ugly, sad, mad, happy, psychotic and frantic all in the same scene. The dinner scene was very strange with Agnes bursting out laughing. To me, it seemed like it wasn’t in the script but they left the accidental laugh in because it was so weird. If all three of them died in the river at the end, or at least Jens, this would have been a 5 star movie, even though the story has too many holes to be believable. What was Jan/Thomas’ motive for abducting the child in the first place? We discover later that Isak’s body was never found which puts another odd hole in the story. When Agnes abducted Jens, the film had real potential, but inevitably fell flat for me. I say 3 stars but it was still an interesting film, although it was a… Read more »

Bridge Over Troubled Water is the fifth and final studio album by American folk rock duo Simon & Garfunkel, released in January 1970 on Columbia Records. Following the duo’s soundtrack for The Graduate, Art Garfunkel took an acting role in the film Catch-22, while Paul Simon worked on the songs, writing all tracks except Felice and Boudleaux Bryant’s “Bye Bye Love” (previously a hit for the Everly Brothers). With the help of producer Roy Halee, the album followed a similar musical pattern as their Bookends LP, partly abandoning their traditional style to incorporate elements of rock, R&B, gospel, jazz, world music, pop and other genres. It was described as their “most effortless record and their most ambitious”.[3] Bridge Over Troubled Water was released on January 26, 1970, and several re-releases followed. The album was mixed and released in both stereo and quadraphonic. Columbia Records released a 40th Anniversary Edition on March 8, 2011, which includes two DVDs, including the politically themed TV special Songs of America (1969), the documentary The Harmony Game, additional liner notes and a booklet. Other reissues contain bonus tracks, such as the 2001 version, which covers the demo tapes of “Feuilles-O” and “Bridge over Troubled Water”. Contemporary critical reception to Bridge was initially mixed, but retrospective reviews of the album have been laudatory, and it is considered by many to be the duo’s best album.[4] Despite numerous accolades, the duo decided to split up, and parted company later in 1970; Garfunkel continued his film career, while… Read more »
