Downsizing is a 2017 American horror-mystery thriller film directed by Alexander Payne and written by Jim Taylor In ‘Downsizing’, his most ambitious film to date, Alexander Payne (‘Between Behind’, ‘The Descendants’) intersects the universes of comedy and science fiction to weave the moral odyssey of a good man – Matt Damon, in the wake of Jack Lemon, close to his work in ‘The Promised Land’ – which must face the illusions of solidarity and the chronic selfishness of the Western world. For this, the character of Damon and his partner (Kristen Wiig), Paul and Audrey, decide to put themselves in the hands of a large corporation that markets in the United States a technology developed by Norwegian scientists that allows to miniaturize a man of 1.80m 12cm.
The initial sense of the project responds to environmental and philanthropic motivations: reducing the problem of overpopulation – with its corresponding lack of food and excess waste – that threatens to end the human species. However, when it comes into contact with the capitalist machinery, technology becomes an outlet for consumerist ardor.
In Payne’s intriguing first part of the bittersweet ‘A life to the big’, Payne brings into play the more naturalistic and sober face of his film: we are invited to understand the actions and decisions of Paul and Audrey as the logical answer to the aspirations of the Yankee middle class. The background themes of the film (the small ambitions of ordinary people, the way in which consumer society disguises altruism as the purest individualism) find accommodation in the work of a Damon and a particularly contained Wiig. Only a small episode, in which Neil Patrick Harris and Laura Dern interpret telepresence dolls, seems to point towards the open caricature.
However, from the expected central turn, the film is precipitated by a carousel of different mood tones and narrative times reminiscent of the different phases that crossed the character of Bill Murray in ‘Trapped in Time’, the marriage of ‘ Dick and Jane, Laughing Thieves “or Jim Carrey of” The Truman Show “, when the conquest of a fascinating and surreal dream showed its bitter counter: when utopia became a nightmare. Unfortunately, parallel to this dystopian twist, in which we discover a world plagued by hypocrisy and walls (which inevitably lead to the protectionist malice of Donald Trump), Alexander Payne’s writing becomes less subtle, more prone to underlining in his denunciation of the egocentrismo prevailing in our reality.
Plagued with stunning digital effects, perfectly integrated in a universe where different scales coexist, “A life in the big” addresses multiple fronts (environmentalism, consumerism, alienation, greed) to end up turned into a long movie starring small people. The film does not lack elements of interest: Payne’s ability to level and counteract brushstrokes of existentialist pessimism with sudden outbursts of tenderness; the courage of a filmmaker who turns a great Hollywood production into a vehicle of criticism and reflection; the echoes of the cinema of Frank Capra and Preston Sturges in the moral adventure of the protagonist. However, in the end, ‘A life in the big’ ends up suffering from a certain paternalism in the approach to the marginal back (plagued of immigrants) of the American dream, as well as of an imbalance between the necessity that have Payne and its coguionista Jim Taylor to show off his pen and his relative inability to engage the viewer in the love story that guides the film towards its end.
Downsizing, the new film by the acclaimed Alexander Payne (Sideways, The Descendants, Nebraska) starring Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau and Kristen Wiig, will open the 74th Venice International Film Festival (August 30) – 9 September), led by Alberto Barbera and organized by the Biennale di Venezia, under the leadership of Paolo Baratta.
Today starts the Venice Festival and the title chosen to inaugurate the 74th edition is ‘Downsizing’, the new work of Alexander Payne. Coinciding with the premiere, Paramount has published the first trailer of this dramatic science-fiction comedy that will arrive in Spain as ‘A life at large’. We are the best…
Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig lead the cast of a movie that plays with the same resource of the classic ‘The Incredible Shrinking Man’ (1957) or the familiar ‘Sweetheart, I have shrunk the children ‘(‘ Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’, 1989). The teaser has the objective of presenting the protagonists, hardly lasts 30 seconds, but already shows some interesting scenes:
Is it a science fiction movie, a romantic comedy, a political parable, or an apocalyptic thriller? Director Alexander Payne combines all these elements in this film about a man, played by Matt Damon, who tries to solve his problems by shrinking himself.
Payne said that despite his science fiction premise and his international canvas, Downsizing is not unlike the tapes by which he is best known: sad and humorous stories about the struggles of middle-aged men like About Schmidt Schmidt, Sideways and Nebraska. “It has the same sense of humor and basically the same tone,” Payne said.
That tone bewildered and thrilled viewers in the Italian city, where the film had its world premiere as the opening tape of the Venice Film Festival. Several tapes that opened the event in recent years, including Gravity and La La Land, ended up winning several Oscars.
Downsizing has ingredients that would help you touch a similar sensitive fiber from the public and the voters: a nice and profitable star, Damon; a solid cast including Kristen Wiig and Christophe Waltz; and a creative story seasoned with humor and compassion.
