Things We Lost In The Fire

Directed by Susanne Bier

Starring Benecio Del Toro, David Duchovny, Halle Berry

Release Date October 19, 2007

Despite a stellar cast, this weepy drama goes nowhere and is excting as watching paint dry inch by inch. At one point, one of the characters, Brian's daughter, asks Jerry (Del Toro) if he thinks he is in a movie, a "sad one"; my brain hurt when I wondered how the screenwriter felt pride upon giving the world that "spectacular insight" into a family grieving the loss of a husband and father. I'd avoid this movie, it's a real snoozer.

Rating: * * of 5
