Two girls meet one morning and spend an incredible day together (by randulos)
I really enjoyed this movie for a multitude of reasons. The best reason for watching this movie is the fact that it raises so many questions. After I saw it for the first time I wanted to watch it again, because I wanted to try to better understand the characters. I wanted to know why, and also why not.I also thought the acting done by René Humphrey and Alicia Witt was phenomenal. These two really made the roles believable, one thinks that the characters are real. I was truly impressed.Finally I liked the use of black & white, and colour. It helped me see how the characters felt, <more>
especially at the end. on a scale of 1 bad to 10 good , I give it a 15.
Not all films give you the ending you are looking for (by Spidey-13)
The film is split between flashbacks of a certain day and black and white scenes of the two girls in a detention centre. By seeing this we know the girls have committed a crime and we watch to find out what they did. We find out that the two girls never knew each other before the day they did what they did. They were loners who had never really had a friend before and they just connected. On this day the girls knocked on an old woman's door saying that one of them was ill and they needed to use the phone. Then they killed the old woman. They went back to one of the girls' houses and <more>
discussed doing it again the next day, as no one could ever know who killed the old lady. They get caught and don't have the chance to commit another crime. In the detention centre the girls are being kept apart because they bring out the worst in each other but by now they love each other and can't live without each other.The film is very similar to the excellent `Heavenly Creatures' but deserves to be recognised in its own light. I rate it 10/10.
The dark fun of troubled youth... (by Foreverisacastironmess123)
Two young lost souls. One, sullen and withdrawn, the other wild and flamboyant. They happen to cross paths one day and form an instant and intense connection, becoming what each is desperately missing in their lives. They spend the day running riot and breaking the rules, bonding by sharing secrets and lies and having fun. Events escalate as they grow ever more exited, and in the midst of this 'passion', they forget for a while that they too are constrained by the laws of society, and things take a fatal turn as all their anger and pent-up emotions come to a boil, and they go in <more>
search of something 'sacred' to share. That something turns out to be the senseless slaughter of a helpless old woman who makes the mistake of trusting them. As individuals they may never have carried out such a crime, as a pair they became lethal and brought out the worst in each other. ::: Okay, so one of the few things I didn't like was how annoying Alecia Witt is when she's acting all hyperactive and theatrical, I think the character was supposed to have O.C.D. or something. However I absolutely loved her when she calmed down and pulled her performance back a little, subtly revealing a depth of emotion while idly running fingers through her beautiful fiery hair. I thought she had a powerful realistic quality to her in those moments. A few flashback images reveal that the character is haunted by what she's done, if only subconsciously, so I guess that's at least something. Renee Humphries was equally great, but in a very different way. Her performance was sharp, fragile, and painfully honest. I think that while she and Witt together make for some of the most amazing moments in the film, she's somewhat overshadowed by Witt's character. I found her much more stronger and compelling on her own. One of the picture's greatest strengths is that both actresses are very realistic and it doesn't come off as acting at all, they feel like real kids. I really don't like it when they say "nuclear", it sounds so dated and corny now! There's also one memorable little sequence of them running around all speeded-up, to this oh-so 90s beat that will also probably be seen as corny by many, and I can understand why! Uh, but not for me personally, I love that part and that's another reason I think so highly of this, it makes me feel great nostalgia for the 90s. My era maan... ::: I liked the themes of colour and lack thereof that emphasises the tones of the past and present. With the 'fun', deadly day of freedom being in vivid colour, while the stark grim reality of the present is in a bleak monochrome. The director clearly had a brilliant grasp of imagery and how to utilise it properly. The ashen look of the interview scenes does not waste a single frame and is remarkably effective at conveying mood. Ultimately, great acting, script and direction make this a saddening yet thought-provoking film due to the raw humanity on display and behind the culprit's actions, it shows what can be achieved with a minimum of resources, and the emotions that such a simple-looking, spartan film can bring out is pretty fantastic. It's not for everyone, but you won't forget it in a hurry. ::: I've heard some grumblings, but for me the standout scene and core of the movie is totally when the old lady meets her demise. With each passing second the scene grows more tense and unnerving. It's obvious the poor thing isn't all there in the head, allowing two complete strangers into her home. I actually find it more disturbing before the attack begins. The way the woman busies herself around them, and shows sweet grandmotherly concern for the girl that's about to murder her. And then of course it just gets horrible as the woman becomes terrified... Witt is such a horrific force as she works herself into a frenzy. To me that's the only time you really feel the horror of it. For the rest of the film the murder feels small and remote somehow...not as important as the girls and how their stories are going to end-you care more about them then you do about her! I have never seen another movie that could manage that. It certainly makes the empathy point well. It actually makes you feel compassion for them even after seeing the unthinkable act that they've committed. It makes you stop and think twice before writing them off as worthless monsters, and that's quite a distinctive quality for a movie like this to have. ::: The final sombre closing scene with Hillary is kind of unsatisfying, as the camera draws away from her in the grey empty world she's created for herself... It's sad, they were each other's whole world for only a day, and through their rage and actions one ended up with death and the other nothing... And the magnificent music which plays over the scene and the end credits is incredibly moving, perfectly capturing all the painful themes of damaged children's lives and innocence... Those kids were beautiful, alienated, at once craving wild experience and romanticising death. Is it any wonder they can be identified with?
Disturbing yet haunting examination of teenage nihilism (by howie73)
This must be one of the most underrated films of all time. I first saw this in 1997 after seeing Heavenly Creatures, a film which many critics have found superior to Fun. However, I found Fun far more impressive than Heavenly Creatures. The acting, camera-work and score are on target. Moving between black and white camera-work to signify the present predicament of its two protagonists, Hilary Alicia Witt and Bonnie Renée Humphrey in a detention center, and lurid color the past , the film expertly entangles the viewer in the labyrinthine world of these two murderers. The director manages <more>
to portray both girls sympathetically at times only to pull the rug towards the end where the horrific murder is shown. The anti-linear structure is quite ingenious because it never allows the audience to feel superior or all-knowing in our view of the girls. But the horrific reality of the murder makes us question what we have already seen. This is by far Rafal Zielinski best work and proof he could rise above the lowbrow trash he made in the 80s.
Very hip low budget entertainment. (by duckbutter)
This film represents the best of independent film. The director obviously recognized the talents of two rising stars and utilized their abilities in this gritty compelling drama. Why this film did so abysmally and garbage like Dogma gets worlds of acclaim I have no idea.Check it out!
what happened to the girls in real life? (by mikeycarmichael)
I liked the film and I may know something that many of the other commentators don't know. The film had the standard disclosure at the end noting that any similarity to actual events is coincidental. But it was anything but coincidence. The actual event happened around 20 years ago in Auburn, California. After knocking on numerous doors, the two teenage girls literally talked their way into an elderly woman's home and killed her. And one of the girls wrote in her dairy "we killed an old woman today and it was lots of fun". The girls were sent to the California Youth Authority <more>
where they could have been held until their 25th birthday. One of the two girls continued to make the news by fighting with the woman guards and telling them she would come back to get them after she got out. But does anyone know if the two girls went on to live productive lives after finally getting out as adults??
Excellent movie, Well worth hunting down (by richdvk)
I thought this was an excellent film and I was surprised to find out how little-known it is. What's best about this movie is that it can be extremely disturbing and yet very believable at the same time. It shows what two minds are capable of when they become obsessed with each other. I would also have to say that there was nothing sexual about the girls relationship as hinted at in the plot keywords . They just had an intense understanding of each other which allowed them to get dangerously close, but not sexual. Excellent acting, intense drama, I gave it an 8/10.
after two decades, still carries a kick (by tshary17)
So hard to believe that this film came out nearly two decades ago, five years before Columbine made the topic of juvenile violence so taboo in teen movies. And it still remains impressive as an examination of girls' anger rather than boys, as a meditation on the possible yet inexplicable outcome of childhood torment.spoiler of ending ahead - Two girls meet one afternoon and, after sharing stories of their childhood abuses and going on a cross-neighborhood prank spree, end up murdering an elderly woman in a cathartic rampage of unleashed aggression. Their lack of motive for the crime and <more>
their passionately non-sexual devotion to each other baffle the authorities who question them: for these effectively parentless children, the path from conversation to confession to stealing to games to jokes to murder is a logical progression, and the film leaves open the unsettling question if many young women are simply waiting for the right partner with whom to follow a similar epiphanic trajectory. In the end, after being imprisoned, one of the girls kills herself when she learns that the two of them will be separated, which becomes her twisted attempt to immortalize their uniquely understanding relationship. The film wisely concludes that the diffuse yet damaging oppressions of girls may lead to all manner of "fun" or furious outbursts and reactions.
