Product Description

Amazon.ca

Le véritable Antwone Fisher, en signant un scénario sur sa propre vie, a certainement su trouver les mots pour atteindre le cœur de Denzel Washington. Pour l’occasion, l’acteur oscarisé a décidé de faire ses premiers pas derrière la caméra. Le résultat est à son image : émouvant, plein d’espoir et d’humanisme.

Né en prison, abandonné par sa mère, élevé par une marâtre, battu, violé, Antwone Fisher (Derek Luke) n’a vraiment pas eu la vie facile. Aujourd’hui membre du corps des Marines, il est victime de sérieuses crises de colère qui l’obligent à consulter un psychologue (Denzel Washington). La relation entre les deux hommes dépassera bien vite le cadre professionnel.

Denzel Washington est un homme résolument bon. Et cela se sent dans son film. Car tandis que le psychanalyste de Good Will Hunting devait montrer les crocs pour gagner le respect de son patient génial, celui d’Antwone Fisher s’apparente à une sorte de gourou spirituel, qui lui indiquera la “bonne” voie pour redécouvrir ses racines et mettre en lumière son talent. Bien sûr, tant de bons sentiments agacent parfois, mais de belles idées de réalisation, de solides flash-back évoquant l’enfance sordide du jeune homme et une interprétation tout à fait convaincante évitent à Antwone Fisher de sombrer dans la plus totale mièvrerie. --Helen Faradji

Antwone Fisher tells the real life story of the title character. A young black navy seaman faces his tough and miserable past with the help of a caring navy psychologist and then sets out to change his situation by confronting his inner struggles and finding the love of the family that he never knew.
The film is beyond brilliant. Denzel Washington, hot off of his Oscar winning performance in Training Day, scores big with Antwone Fisher. He not only stars as the psychologist, but directs this flawless drama in his first ever debut in the director's chair. Derek Luke, a name that is destined to shine in years to come, portrays Fisher with such conviction that he successfully steals the show in the scenes he's in with Denzel.
The film is very heartfelt. It will bring tears to your eyes.
A very recommended movie.
A+

Antwone Fisher is a surprisingly good movie in light of its unlikely subject matter. Most movies centering around psychologically troubled persons that are not crime dramas are just simply not very good. Antwone Fisher rises above the rest and is a very good movie.
The reason for this is that the movie is an autobigraphy of a real life person. Antwone Fisher served in the U.S. Navy and had a productive relationship with a Navy shrink played by Denzel Washington.
This movie boasts an excellent script and cast to match.

I must admit (shamefully) that this did move me to tears. It is definitely a sad story, but unfortunately it is too true, and not only in the ghettoes.
Antwone Fisher's story shows the importance of families in the emotional development of human beings at the earliest age. In a time when we have been bombarded with guilt-stories we tend to shake off what we consider as another attempt at making us feel guilty. But this story isn't about making anyone feel guilt. It shows the struggles that face people who have not had the security of a family, and it helps those who haven't experienced that sort of insecurity relate to those that have.
I'm not a big-fan of love interests either, but I think it was important to show that his girlfriend played a role in his rehabilitation. One thing I did not like about the movie was Denzel's character almost compelling Fisher to lose his virginity. I don't think this sends the right message especially to those young people who may be watching this movie, but then what movies do?
The acting wasn't bad, although the movie had that Hollywood feel to it. I think some stories get through even if they are painted with tinsel-town's brush, and for this to have been Denzel's debut as a director adds to the specialness of this movie. I hope he comes out with another one sometime soon.
On another note, it's good to see a positive potrayal of Afro-American people on film, there have been too many 'gangsta' films coming out of Hollywood of late.
Finally, watch this movie to get a perspective on your own life.

I recently saw this film about the life and times of Antwone Fisher. As a grown man I found myself weeping at certain points in the movie especially Fisher's early years of physical and sexual abuse. You can understand why he was so explosively angry. The film was directed by Denzel Washington who did a brilliant job...

This is a very moving movie. I did not have any idea that it was in any way biographical until the end of the film. Who knows how much license has been taken and who cares. Derek Luke does a great job in portraying a talented and sensitive young man whose harsh life has trained him to lash out as his only means of protection. Denzel Washington, whom I can never not enjoy on screen, is naval doctor Jerome Davenport who is assigned to decide of Fisher should be discharged from the Navy as unfit after yet another brawl.
Davenport and Fisher develop a close relationship in a way that becomes rewarding but limiting for both, but Dr. Davenport has the professionalism to urge Fisher to seek out his real family. Fisher does and learns a lot about himself and gains some healing connections with his life.
Denzel Washington also directed this movie and I think he did a fine job. This is a good movie for young people (if not children) to watch. It can teach adolescents something about the problems and emotions they are facing.

By Amazon Customer HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on Feb. 7 2004
Format: DVD
I live in a city that is off the beaten path, especially when it comes to movies. "Lost in Translation" never came here and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" only made it to the local art theater. I remember when "Boyz in the Hood" came to town there was a story about it in the newspaper that made it sound for all the world that it was a foriegn film, and there is a sense in which that is true because the idea of living in a place where police helicopters are buzzing overhead all the time is beyond our experience. But even though films by African-American directors do not always manage to make it up this far into the Northland, I have made a point of checking them out when they are released on video and DVD. One of the main reasons is that directors like Spike Lee and John Singleton are making films that speaks to the African-American experience in America. This seems self-evident, but I have to tell you that very few movies have spoken to me directly about my life; I have identified with the television series "thirtysomething" and "Once and Again," at vastly different times in my life, more than anything else. But I can still appreciate the sense of purpose I almost always find in these films.
We have all heard the alarming statistics about how many African-American children are raised in homes without a father and the devastaing impact that has had on generations of such children, and on one level "Antwone Fisher" is about one such child. This 2003 film begins with a dream in which Antwone walks into a room and finds his entire family gathered for a big meal. Then he wakes up on the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier on which he serves. The next thing we know Antwone is getting into fights if anybody says the wrong word to him.
