Die Regisseurin Tamara Jenkins stellt in ihrer preisgekrönten Tragikomödie "Die Geschwister Savage" vor. Eine ganz normale Familie: Ein alter Vater, erwachsene Geschwister, die sich und ihm nichts zu sagen haben. Ein Anruf konfrontiert Wendy (Laura Linney) und Jon (Philip Seymour Hoffman) Savage mit der Tatsache sich um ihren inzwischen demenzkranken Vater zu kümmern.

Ein nachdenklicher Film, der durch menschliche Wärme und hintergründigem Humor vom wahren Leben berichtet. (Quelle: cede.ch)

L'altra faccia di Beverly Hills( Visual )

Trama: Los Angeles, 1976. La quindicenne Vivian Abramowitz vive con i due fratelli (Ben di circa vent'anni e Ricky di dodici) ed il padre Murray, uno sfortunato venditore di automobili divorziato dalla moglie che si è rifatta una vita altrove. Malgrado la situazione economica non sia eccellente, per permettere ai figli di frequentare scuole prestigiose e buone compagnie, Murray si ostina a vivere nei pressi dell'elegante quartiere di Beverly Hills. Qui, tuttavia, gli affitti delle case sono molto più elevati che altrove e ciò costringe la famiglia a continui "traslochi" all'insaputa dei padroni di casa quando, alla fine del mese, i soldi per pagare l'affitto sono stati spesi in altro modo. Un po' di stabilità sembra arrivare quando si fa viva Rita, la figlia di un ricchissimo zio fuggita da una clinica in cui si stava disintossicando dalla dipendenza dalle droghe. Murray si offre per ospitare la ragazza e si impegna per farle conseguire un diploma da infermiera: in cambio chiede a Mickey, suo fratello, di contribuire economicamente al mantenimento della famiglia. Ora gli Abramowitz possono permettersi di vivere in una casa all'altezza delle loro aspettative e Murray può corteggiare degnamente un'attempata vicina di casa. L'arrivo di Rita, tuttavia, non è privo di conseguenze: l'estroversa ragazza mette in imbarazzo tutta la famiglia girando seminuda per casa e, soprattutto, con la sua visione disinibita della sessualità, contribuisce a confondere le idee di Vivian, già frastornata per l'esuberante sviluppo del proprio corpo. La ragazza tenta addirittura di sottoporsi ad un intervento chirurgico per ridurre le dimensioni del suo seno ma poi ci ripensa anche grazie alle avance di Eliot, un giovane vicino di casa con il quale decide di avere il suo primo rapporto sessuale. Ben presto, però, i nodi vengono al pettine: Rita ha frequentato pochissime lezioni del corso per infermiera e, sconfortata, ingerisce dei tranquillanti poco prima dell'arrivo dei genitori, venuti a trovarla per controllare la situazione. Quando, in seguito a un banale battibecco, durante il pranzo lo zio Mickey rinfaccia a Murray di essere un fallito, Vivian gli pianta una forchetta in una coscia. La rottura è inevitabile: Rita torna a casa con i genitori, gli Abramowitz sono costretti a riprendere la vita di sempre all'insegna di un orgoglioso nomadismo

Søsknene Jon og Wendy Savage lengter ikke akkurat etter å begynne å grave i sin families kompliserte fortid. Etter å ha klart å legge sin dominerende fars skygge bak seg lever de nå forholdsvis bekymringsløse liv. Inntil dagen da telefonen ringer og overbringer beskjeden som skal snu opp ned på det meste. Mannen de lenge har fryktet og holdt seg unna, faren Lenny, er rammet av demens, og barna er de eneste som kan hjelpe ham. Wendy og Jon må legge sine ordinære liv på hyllen for en stund. For første gang siden oppveksten må de flytte inn og bo under samme tak som sin far. Men det går ikke lang tid før erkjennelsen kommer, minnene sitter spikret om hvordan den lille familien gikk hverandre på nervene. Når det totale kaoset nærmer seg, og søsknene bråker om hvordan de best skal ta hånd om faren på hans siste dager, forstår de hva det innebærer å bli voksne og det å ha familie. Og kanskje mest overraskende, plutselig forstår Jon og Wendy hva det inneværer å ha hverandre. Filmen fikk terningkast 4-5

"PBS summer series 'Alive TV' opens its ninth season with a quickly paced half-hour of short films, most of which suggest that the future of the industry is in relatively good hands: Imagination and craftsmanship abound, though storytelling skills fall a bit short in spots. Films range in aim and content from a semianimated musicvideo for rap group Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy to the carefully plotted 'Fugitive Love, ' which at 13 minutes almost qualifies as a feature in this context.'Sour Death Balls' is simplest, with one-shots of people seen sucking on what is evidently a very unsavory candy; the anguished expressions of adults and children as they try to play along with the joke was enough to win director Jessica Yu the Live Short Award at this year's Santa Barbara Film Festival. Nicole Holofcener's 'Angry' may be the funniest, starring the director as a young woman trying to escape mom's (Lynn Cohen) apron strings. Ending has a bit of a shaggy-dog aspect, but it's an ending. In 'Fugitive Love, ' a most ambitious film, Jane (Stephanie Silverman) returns home after a soured romance; her mother (Peggy Cowles), aunt (Jacqueline DeCosmo) and grandmother (Hope Sacharoff) smother her with advice. Writer-director Tamara Jenkins -- who submitted this as her thesis film at NYU Film School -- scores humor points here; also impressive is the evocative art direction by Susan Block and Bob Armstrong. 'Television: The Drug of the Nation, ' a fairly conventional musicvideo consisting of montaged still and video images, may have been chosen on the basis of itstheme: the numbing effect of the media on impressionable minds. Piece works, but wouldn't stand out on "Yo! MTV Raps.'"--Variety, July 2, 1993
