My Dinner with Hervé (2018) Reviews
I knew little of Herve, despite that the show Fantasy Island was such a mega hit (I didn't watch the show but knew well of it). Dinklage presented a portrait of a man like I have never seen before; simply mesmerizing. I truly believe Dinklage may be the greatest living actor at this time, he is simply the most genuine and talented person in his craft. He is genius in GoT, but he simply amazes in his channeling of Herve. The story is well crafted and beautifully told, although a side story involving the reporter's personal life crisis seemed, well, not complete or fitting. However that is but a small portion of the story. The supporting cast was great too; Andy Garcia's Ricardo Montalban was shear excellence, and I love David Strathairn in anything he does. I thoroughly enjoyed this superb presentation of a fascinating story. Don't miss it.
A compelling tribute to the flawed individuals we all are
It took me a while to let go of the 'that's not the type of dwarfism he had' problem, but when I was finally able to do so, I was able to appreciate the story much more. It touched (lightly, admittedly, but also in an 'everyman' (sic) kind of way) on the themes of self-belief, self-control, and self-congratulation, and how thin the line between them is. One false move can see you fall on your face, or require you to push someone else out of your way; and we never know when that false move may occur or what may prompt it to happen.
Any weakness in this film be it script, direction, other cast members cannot hold a mention compared to the brilliant, consistent performance by PETER DINKLAGE . brilliant!
A World For Humans~ does size really matter?
Our culture's infatuation with celebrity is bitter sweetly conveyed in the story of Hervé Villechaize, a star crossed lover of life who gained fame in Hollywood through his acting career. Daniel, the journalist played by Jamie Dornan is a fitting foil for Hervé, one teeter-tottering to sobriety, the other in flagrante ~ fully consumed by efforts to cover emotional pain. It's an opportunity to face the flaws in every human ~ in love we come face to face with the gap between a hero's summit that we hope to achieve and the mistakes we inevitably make in life as it unfolds. Peter Dinklage's performance is wonderful and as the writer, Dornan has a chance to display a nuanced character quite admirably.
Serious Emmy bait, also a whole lot of fun!
Peter Dinklage is likely going to be competing against himself for an Emmy. I knew he was a brilliant actor, I've been following him since Threshold, but this is jaw dropping work. He hit it out of the park. I laughed and I cried and I finally understand Herve. On top of Mr Dinklage's stunning performance the film is rock solid filmmaking. Great story, well shot and it never lost me for one second. It's such a wild ride you won't be bored. Jamie Dornan also deserves an Emmy nod. The director deserves credit for the performances as well. Creating characters like this is a team effort. I don't want to leave the writer out, I think they are facing a potential Emmy nod or better. For me HBO has been hit and miss lately but they made an excellent decision backing this one. I very rarely give a 10 for anything, I can count on my two hands the number of times I have but this film deserves it. Most films now can't hold my attention for more than a few minutes. I find action movies boring because these days the more action the less character work we get. I'm in it for the characters. If I can't relate to them I get bored fast. We don't get characters like Indiana Jones anymore where it's a mix of action and character. It's refreshing to see the characters get the attention they deserve and they created some intriguing characters in this one. Give it a try and you'll be glad you did.
