  • What is this movie about?aint_them_bodies_saints

Once upon a time there were two lovers, a young man and a young woman who, with a friend, decided to rob a shop in a little town down in Texas. They succeed in getting the money, but their luck was not that far. They were surrounded but the sheriff and his men in a house. There the friend got killed and in exchange one of the sheriff’s officers was shot. At the end both the young man and the young woman got arrested but only the young man ended in prison. As the years go by his only aim is to be reunited with his love and the daughter he never met…

  • Why this title?

It is said that the title was an idea from the movie director when he heard to a song and misspelled the title. It actually has no meaning but if we were to read between lines we know, that no one nor their bodies are saints.

  • Why should (not) you watch this movie?

Former Elisabeth Salander (Rooney Mara) and future Batman’s brother (Cassey Affleck) are the young lovers. While Angel from X-Men (Ben Foster) is the sheriff. This movie is a hidden treasure without any doubt. The action flows naturally, the actors do a fantastic job (all of them), specially Mr Material Girl (Keith Carradine), the landscape feels like home and the music, mostly the lack of it, is like one actor more.

The movie makes you feel exactly how the characters are feeling: loved, passionate, tense, longed…. If you are looking for a movie that makes normal life standing up and shows you how relationships are kept no matter the distance, making us acting like what we are, humans, then this is definitely your movie.
