Product Description


Pour son sixième film, Le village, et après les succès de Le sixième sens, L’indestructible ou Signes, le réalisateur M. Night Shyamalan applique à nouveau sa recette favorite : du frisson, une pointe d’horreur, des sursauts et une surprise finale.

En 1897, l’harmonie heureuse d’un petit village de Pennsylvanie, que préservent les anciens, est perturbée par les attaques des monstres dont on ne doit pas prononcer le noms, attirés par la couleur rouge et qui hantent les bois alentours. Mais le climat de peur désormais instillé empêchera-t-il Lucius, le discret, et Ivy, la jeune aveugle, de s’aimer ? D’autant que Noah, le fou du fillage, est déjà amoureux de la belle.

Magnifiquement filmé, notamment dans les scènes de nuit, usant avec grâce de la profondeur de champ, Le village compte également sur le scénario habilement construit de M. Night Shyamalan et sur des interprètes en forme :William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Joaquin Phoenix mais surtout Bryce Dallas Howard (la fille du réalisateur Ron Howard) en jeune aveugle amoureuse et Adrien Brody, terriblement inquiétant. Abusant parfois d’effets sonores, le film perpétue également la croyance du réalisateur en la bonté, l’innocence et la simplicité de l’humain tout en découvrant une métaphore politique finale intéressante. Le DVD est complété par un making-of, un journal de bord de Mlle Howard, des scènes supprimées et un film de jeunesse plutôt amusant du réalisateur. – Helen Faradji.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Village June 19 2006
In 1897, in Covington, a countryside community located in the secluded area in a large clearing of trees in rural Pennsylvania, the simplistic and happy harmony is often punctured by the frightening monthly appearances of horrific monstrous creatures with unspeakable names that live within the dense forest woods surrounding Covington. The creatures are attracted by the color red, and therefore red is forbidden from ever being worn and shown at all in Covington. The Elders, Covington's leaders, decide that the best method against the creatures is to simply hide whenever they arrive, and to often wear yellow, "the safe color," when near the woods.

But for young Lucius Hunt (Joaquin Phoenix), personally dismayed at the death of several children within Covington, life staying hidden within the forest clearing and always running away from the creatures is completely dissatisfying. In order to stop the future deaths of many other children from ever happening, Lucius appeals to The Elders, asking their permission to leave Covington and get medicine from the other neighboring towns. Lucius' request is turned down, and his widowed mother, Alice (Sigourney Weaver), begins to worry more about her son, and how quiet he has become.

Ivy Walker (Bryce Dallas Howard), the beautiful and spirited redhead blind girl of Covington, and always a close friend of Lucius, is now discovering that she and Lucius may be falling deeply, madly, truly in love with each other.

3.0 out of 5 stars A mediocre offering Sept. 9 2006
The Village is the story of a small community living in a tiny settlement, surrounded by woods that reportedly contain mysterious, malevolent creatures. These creatures have to be given sacrifices in order to prevent them harming the villagers. No-one enters the woods or leaves the Village. M Night Shymalan has managed yet again to create an atmospheric movie with brilliant cinematography. Unfortunately this is as much as he manages with this film. In spite of worthy performances by stars such as Sigourney Weaver and Joaquin Phoenix along with a brilliant performance by newcomer Bryce Dallas Howard as a blind girl, the film somehow falls flat. There is none of the sense of unease that we have come to expect with Shymalan's movies and the ending, for once, could be seen coming from very early on in the story.

Some people have viewed this as a horror story, others as a drama but it doesn't really manage to fall into either genre comfortably. It's not a bad film, it's certainly worth viewing once, but it's not one that you would want to watch over and over.

5.0 out of 5 stars not bad at all March 13 2005
i was expecting a movie that was boring and tedious because of all the bad things ive heard of it. what i was served was a good movie with a plot twist at the end that infuriates some people to death.
yes, this is a slow moving movie. no, the creatures in the woods arent in every scene, so dont expect them to be. they are more of a sub plot, in the way of the real story taking place. they are more of obsticles in the way of the salvation of the characters.
with that being said, this was a good movie. not shyamalan's best, nor does it surpass his previous three movies, but this is still a very good movie. the ending had my brother and other people angry as hell and, personally, i liked it. i thought it was interesting the way it spawned out to be what it was.
all in all, the village isnt a memorable movie besides the ending which you will either like or hate. you will not love it, you will not kind of like it or be unsure, you will come to a complete decision as the credits roll. i liked it, and i recommend you to watch this movie with an open mind.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing... Jan. 15 2005
By Erik
I have really enjoyed M. Night Shyamalan's other movies, especially 'The Sixth Sense' and 'Signs'. Each of his movies has a gimmick or payoff, so to speak. It is getting harder and harder to top them, and he must be running low on new ones.
You definitely have to suspend your disbelief in this one. This late nineteenth century Pennsylvania village is sitting in the middle of a not too large pasture, and is surrounded by woods on all four sides. There are 'creatures' living in the woods, the villagers stay out of the woods, and the 'creatures' stay out of the village. That is the 'truce'.
How did the villagers get to there location if these maurading creatures are all around them, and hey, where does all their stuff keep coming from. The land the village occupies is no larger than a cow pasture and cannot be self-sustaining.
But nevermind about all that. The acting is pretty good, especially Joaquim Phoenix. The worst is Adrien Brody, as an over the top halfwit. Director Ron Howard's daughter, Bryce Dallas Howard is really good as the blind Ivy.
I suspended my disbelief, and looked forward to the payoff. It is, in my honest opinion, very disappointing. Shyamalan really needs to stop using this 'payoff' or 'gimmick' formula because audiences keep expecting it now and will only be disappointed. It's time for something new.
M. Night Shyamalan is a good storyteller and film maker, and some of his previous movies were brilliant. But it is time to stop with the gimmick payoffs because he just can't keep topping himself anymore. I look forward to Mr. Shyamalan's next film, and hope it is something non-gimmicky.
