Excellent film against the backdrop of Dresden bombing in the II World War, based on the memorable novel by Kurt Vonnegut Jr . Beautiful classical music for the soundtrack by Glenn Gould. The dvd arrived very soon and in perfect condition. No subtitles in Italian, though. No extras except the trailer.

5.0 su 5 stelle Good old Days of irreverent-inquisitive-eccentric-satiric Speculative fiction by Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and director George Roy Hill 8 giugno 2015
Di Book & Music thief, from HI - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: DVD Acquisto verificato
Another prime example (perhaps even epitome) of the hallowed phrase: "they sure don't make movies like this anymore" = that elusive but intriguing category of boldly-imaginative-eccentric filmmaking*. Produced in 1972 based on the renowned (and groundbreaking) book circa1969 written by legendary speculative fiction novelist/ satirist Kurt Vonnegut Jr. and Directed by the great George Roy Hill (who also did the "Sting" and "Butch Cassidy & Sundance Kid" et al). Starring Michael Sacks as the man 'unstuck-in-time' meek/mild-mannered Billy Pilgrim, with thespian assist by Ron Leibman as psychotic-POW 'Lazzaro' Eugene Roche as kind-hearted/ down-to-Earth Edgar Derby, and Valerie Perrine as mysteriously-disappeared-former-starlet (and mother to all future 4th-dimension space-born humankind) Montana Wildhack! And don't forget that awesome Soundtrack from the quirky/brilliant (in this case much more brilliant than quirky) Glenn Gould playing his best Bach (concertos and Goldberg variations!)

I actually was a very small-tyke when this originally came-out, and did not actually see the entire film until sometime in the late-Eighties (in college) but as with recorded Music/songwriting, it seems that films made during the Late-1960's thru 1970's contained an inquisitiveness & creative-originality that seemed sorely lacking in the formulaic/Hollywood blockbuster oriented 1980's and 1990's (with the exception of some independently made films of the time). And "Slaughterhouse-Five" is filled to the brims & rafters with irreverent-inquisitiveness & eccentric-originality (and even a few discomforting inquiries into the true meaning of 'morality' itself?)

Presenting Lead-protagonist 'Billy Pilgrim' as a meek/ mild man out of step with 'Time' itself in stark contrast to the typical WWII Hollywood films, in which the American protagonists are expected to be heroically-decisive and never even a bit 'unsure' about their ultimate goals & objectives. This characterization of Billy as a discombobulated-reluctant uncertain soldier (who seems exceedingly uncomfortable and not able to snugly fit into his own skin or circumstances) was probably much more a reflection of the late-60s early 70s disillusioned-Vietnam time-frame when Vonnegut's book/ and this film came-out, similar to the cynical-sardonic viewpoint of Altman's 'MASH' from around the same time - although that of course was about the Korean-War).

But there is much more to this film than Billy's reluctance to fully-embrace the determined-soldier-freedom-fighter mentality = he seems just as incapable (or reluctant?) to deal with his everyday life after WWII, as the upper-middle-class Optometrist complete with wife, two kids, and even a dog aptly named 'Spot' (intriguingly it is only 'Spot' who seems to truly understand/sympathize with Billy's predicament - and there are genuine emotionally-moving scenes where Billy who is now 'unstuck' in time and travelling decades backwards and forwards = has an emotionally-resonant reunion with the aging 'Spot' literally on his last-hind-Legs, but the deep-connection has not diminished one iota, and **spoiler** there is also an extraterrestrial surprise/ journey awaiting both of them!)

And back to WWII, of course a big part of Vonnegut's Story deals with the immense fire-bombing of the historic-German city, Dresden (a terrifying event that Vonnegut himself had witnessed first-hand as part of the American Army POWs captured after 'The Battle of the Bulge'), the cinematic scenes dramatizing the totally bombed-out city appear quite terrifyingly authentic. The Dresden fire-bombing (similar to the dropping of two Atomic bombs on Japan) poses the disquietingly-complex moral question: even though the German military-hierarchy were responsible for the vast majority of devastation + death during WWII (and of course directly responsible for the Holocaust), can the targeting of mass-civilian population centers in Axis controlled regions and the countless ensuing civilian deaths ever be justified (particularly the historic city of Dresden, which had minimal heavy-industry and was not a major war-machine supplier, also occurring at the tail-end of WWII, when Germany was in retreat) - controversial questions regarding how much responsibility can be placed upon civilian populations that might not have had significant influence on the destructively-devastating results of military decision-making or tactics.

Kurt Vonnegut Jr. asked those exceedingly difficult questions about War, peace, and the meaning of, or (in)ability to obtain fulfilling middle-class-existence (with more than a bit of sardonic wit, and resignation) - but the question remains: where are those extra-terrestrial 'Tralfamadorians' when we really need them ==> their living-quarter square-footage seemed a bit small based on the domestic-bubble-dome depicted (but Billy Pilgrim appeared genuinely happy for the first time in his Life), and those 4th Dimension traversing 'Tralfamadorians' were definitely enthusiastic supporters of the "be fruitful x multiply" universally accepted concept (and also seemed to exhibit a dryly-sardonic 'wit' in conversation) - so they can't be all bad?! (even providing that celebratory massive-galactic 4th Dimension fireworks show at finale!)

note*: although I have heard that Gullermo del Toro might be attempting a remake soon ==> and if any filmmaker has the creative gifts and imaginative vision to do it successfully = it would be G. del Toro! (most adept at matching 'morality-play' with wildly vivid-imagination as demonstrated brilliantly in "Pan's Labyrinth"!!!)

5.0 su 5 stelle Better than the book 25 settembre 2015
Di chazb0 - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Acquisto verificato
It helped to have re-read the classic book recently, but the movie is arguably better than the book because it inserts some events that help to explain why some characters are involved. It also leaves out some minor events that are digressions. Good acting throughout although the actor in the lead role of Billy Pilgrim seems to play it tongue-in-cheek which is appropriate. By the way, Kurt Vonnegut, the author of the book, exaggerated the casualty figures for the Dresden fire-bombing to make a more cogent anti-war statement. He said it was 100,000, more than Hiroshima, but it was actually about 25,000. Still tragic, but small compared to 6 million Jews and 10 million Russians killed by Nazi Germany. Vonnegut also said Dresden wasn't a military target, but it was a major railroad intersection for the Nazi supply line to the front, and there were munitions factories in the suburbs.

5.0 su 5 stelle Vonnegut's best film 17 settembre 2015
Di asimov - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: DVD Acquisto verificato
An odd movie throughout but thought provoking and entertaining. If you watch this movie start from the opening seconds or you may be lost. I've seen other movies made from Kurt Vonnegut's books, and frankly they did not fly well. Slaughterhouse Five is an excellent adaptation of an outstanding novel. The title was an unfortunate selection; when I recommend the movie my friends generally tell me they don't like slasher films. And Slaughterhouse Five is hardly a slasher film. It is a science fiction, space travel, time travel, World War II movie.

4.0 su 5 stelle Strong and interesting portrayal of the book, but still, READ THE BOOK FIRST! 21 novembre 2015
Di T. Maerling - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: DVD Acquisto verificato
Kurt Vonnegut's novel, Slaughterhouse-Five is an amazing piece of writing; a masterpiece. This movie is an interesting take on the book. I teach this book to my high school honors classes and there are some differences and a very specific interpretation of Billy's experiences. The actor plays a very convincing Billy Pilgrim and the transitions of the "unstuck" moments throughout the narrative are well done. The thing that makes me the saddest about this is that the line "So it goes" is in the book over 100 times, yet is never mentioned once in the movie. If you are a student, this is NOT a way to get around reading the book-- read the book! It's amazing!
5.0 su 5 stelle "And so it goes..." 15 novembre 2016

Tough book to realize onscreen, but the actor for Billy Pilgrim was amazingly
Billy Pilgrim. Everyone was adept to their roles. The film version may
have felt a bit clunky at times, overwrought, but by and large it felt like perhaps
a forerunner to "Forrest Gump." Billy Pilgrim's Every Man was along for the
ride the whole way.

I guess I'd forgotten the disaffection Billy acted out towards his son. Need to
read that part again!

I would recomment this movie, if for no other reason than it might encourage
viewers to read the book if they have not.
