Product Description

Amazon.ca

Dans la veine des Talented Mr. Ripley et autres Héros très discret, Catch Me If You Can est un film d’imposture où les escrocs sont d’autant plus trompeurs qu’ils prennent les allures du gendre parfait. Aussi frais et pétillant qu’une coupe de champagne, ce drame inspiré d’un fait vécu porte également la signature d’une valeur sûre à Hollywood, Steven Spielberg.

Pilote de ligne, médecin, professeur d’université, assistant du procureur : qui est vraiment Frank Abagnale Jr. ? Comment mène-t-il ce train de vie luxueux ? C’est ce que l’inspecteur du FBI Carl Hanratty s’est juré de découvrir.

Volontairement léger, sans mort d’homme, Catch Me If You Can s’aventure dans le registre des escrocs raffinés avec beaucoup de sophistication. Une reconstitution parfaite des années 60 et 70, avec décors et bande-son pimpants et acidulés, sert de cadre à un rapport de force ironique et savoureux entre imposteur (Leonardo DiCaprio) et policier (Tom Hanks). Seuls points faibles : les relations de Frank avec ses parents (Christopher Walken et Nathalie Baye), un tantinet moralisatrices, et les rôles féminins décevants. Mais en multipliant les clins d’œil, notamment à James Bond et Hitchcock, ce film intelligent et rafraîchissant reste charmant, adoptant pour notre plus grand plaisir la forme d’un jeu qui ne se prend jamais au sérieux. --Helen Faradji

From the opening credits design we get in the mood of this very entertaining film. They create the tone for what will follow. Steven Spielberg is in rare form directing this movie that doesn't have a dull moment.

Mr. Spielberg has found a perfect actor to fill the shoes of the con man with the perfect casting of Leonardo DiCaprio. It's very easy to see why all the women fall prey of this charmer. He was a fast talker and a slick operator. He exudes charisma to fill another couple of movies.

It's a welcome sight to have Mr. DiCaprio working in a vehicle that shows his talent as Frank Abagnale, a man of many faces. He plays a game of hide-and-seek throughout the movie with Hanratty, the FBI agent that is in his trail. Tom Hanks shows great assurance and gusto with this character. Of course, the DiCaprio magnetism dominates the action with the many ironic twists and the miraculous and narrow escapes he pulls with an aplomb that's bewildering to the Feds, who are on his tail all the time.

The minor roles are equally important. Christopher Walken as the father starts out as the prototype of the con man, but he's too decent to do wrong; his business fails eventually. His marriage to Natalie Baye, the fine French actress, ends in divorce because obviously she hates being married to a loser.

The action doesn't stop for one moment. This film is great fun to watch with the winning combination Mr. Spielberg assured hand gives us this time out. Mr. Spielberg can thank the genial Mr. DiCaprio who responds obviously to his direction and makes this con man endearing even when he is committing crimes

Steven Spielberg directed this light hearted "based on a true story"
crime drama.it's basically about one young man who assumes several
different identities while forging millions of dollars worth of checks
without the FBI being aware of it.along the way,he poses an a
doctor,lawyer and a commercial pilot.once the FBI does catch on to him
he manges to stay at least one step ahead of them.this movie takes
place in the 60's and in this day and age,a Frank Abagnale would not
likely have been successful in forging checks and/or eluding the
authorities.Leonardo DiCaprio plays the lead role of Frank
Abagnale.leading the FBI investigation is Carl Hanratty played by Tom
Hanks.it's fun to see the two try to outwit each other,and there are
some close calls for Frank,in which he is moments from being
discovered.just like in The Terminal,Steven Spielberg shows he is just
as skilled with the lighter fare as with the darker subjects he is
known for.for me,Catch Me If You Can is 4.5/5

I purchased this rental of “Catch Me If You Can” (inspired by a true life story) on April 11, 2014 to complement my purchases of two other Leonardo DiCaprio movies (J. Edgar and Aviator). “Catch Me If You Can” is a movie that captures the film interactions of Leonardo Di Caprio and Tom Hanks. DiCaprio plays the character of Frank Abagnale, who is listed along to have successfully posed (for a brief time) as a pilot, doctor, and lawyer. Hanks plays the FBI official tasked with going after him. Christopher Walken, Amy Adams, and Martin Sheen are also featured in “Catch Me If You Can.” The following facts are listed at the end of “Catch Me If You Can.”:
Frank Abagnale has been married for 26 years, he has three sons and lives a quiet life in the Midwest. Since his release from prison in 1974, Frank has helped the FBI capture some of the world’s most elusive check forgers, counterfeiters, and is considered one of the world’s top experts on bank fraud and forgery.
Frank has designed many of the secure checks that banks and Fortune 500 companies use every day. For his services, these companies pay Frank Abagnale millions of dollars per year. Frank and Carl (the FBI official who was tasked with pursuing him) remain close friends to this day.

This movie is wonderful!I loved every minute of it.Everything from the plot to the dialogue is amazing, but what else would you expect from ann award winning director and cast.Leonardo Di Caprio shines in one of his best pieces of work and in my opinion runs this film.Tom Hanks also does an absolutely great job.Christopher Walken who I enjoy from other movies also rounded out this fun film.The dialogue is smart and witty with great directional views from the one and only Spielberg.The plot is great and represents the actual events wonderfully.This film has a great moral and just makes you feel good at the end.When I watched this film the other day it didn't seem near two hours long.It is worth every cent you pay to buy or see it.I had heard about this film and all the great reviews but I expected it to be boring and uneventful since it took place in the 60's, but I was very impressed and suprised with how touching and smart it really is.The setting and class of the film will impress many.I was suprised at how ritzy and humorous it was at times and definetly think it could be one of the best films of that year and can't wait to see more from the amazing crew.Make sure to check this out if you already haven't.
Frank Abagnale, Jr. (Leonardo Di Caprio) worked as a doctor, a lawyer and as a co-pilot for a major airline -- all before his 18th birthday. A master of deception, he was also a brilliant forger, whose skill gave him his first real claim to fame: At the age of 17, Frank Abagnale, Jr. became the most successful bank robber in the history of the United States. FBI Agent Carl Hanratty (Tom Hanks) had made it his prime mission to capture Frank and bring him to justice, but Frank is always one step ahead of him, baiting him to continue the chase.
