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
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius of a movie Jan. 11 2005
Format:DVD
The Village takes us on a journey through one of the greatest stories ever told. The way it was written, directed and acted are outstanding. Certain people just don't get it. They don't see the brilliance in what M. Night did to make this an amazing movie.
We follow the lives of a small town in Pennsylvania, as they live their daily lives all while having the looming threat of the creatures that live in the woods. Not to be harmed, the villagers must never venture into the woods, for fear of danger. But when tragedy strikes this lowly town - someone must step up. Young Ivy Walker, the daughter of the village's head elder Edward Walker (William Hurt) fights with all her power to get permission to go through the woods, into the towns, to save Lucius (Joaquin Phoenix), the man she loves.
Can Ivy fight the demons that the village faces? Can the secrets that hide throughout continue to stay secret? Can love overcome evil?
The Village is a whirlwind journey through thriller, romance, drama, and yes-even comedy at times. You feel as if you are Ivy fighting everything in your power, fearing everything around you just to get to the towns to save Lucius - and yourself.
Brilliant directing, writing, and acting - M Night, is definitely one of the greatest filmmakers around. And there is nothing but praise for this movie.
With the DVD showing extra features such as the making of The Village, deleted scenes, and an excellent commentary. The Village will be the only thing playing in my DVD player for a very long time.

Dans ce suspense d'horreur et de mystère réalisé par M. Night Shyamalan, l'audience ne pourra qu'être captivée du début à la fin. Le film est un réel succès.
Une communauté isolée très unie vit dans la peur oppressante d'une force maléfique qui hante la forêt interdite bordant le petit village. La terreur domine tous les habitants et nul ose aller explorer les bois jusqu'à ce qu'une brave villageoise désire affronter l'inconnu. Une aveugle devra braver sa peur pour aller chercher des médicaments dans le monde moderne et ainsi constater une grande vérité cachée à tout le village.
Excellent film de suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spooky and fun Sept. 14 2007
By Kona TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Life in the tiny 19th century village of Covington Woods is idyllic; the tiny community lives in harmony, completely isolated from the distant Towns that are feared and never visited. The only problem is the constant threat of the hideous, red monsters that lurk in the woods and send the villagers rushing to their cellars every so often. Ivy (Bryce Dallas Howard), the plucky, blind daughter of elder Walker (William Hurt), has fallen in love with strong and shy Luscious (Joaquin Phoenix), son of the widow Hunt (Sigourney Weaver). When Lucious' life is in danger, Ivy asks for permission to leave the village for the first time and seek medicine in the Towns.

I really enjoyed this movie. The actors are all excellent and the creepy mood is lightened by a bit of innocent romance. Some of the characters are written as stereotypes - Ivy is the wisest and bravest girl in the village (if not the world) and never, ever stumbles - but others are more intriguing: Adrien Brody gives a touching performance as a mentally retarded young man who causes trouble, and Joaquin Phoenix is sweet as the lovesick hero. You'll have no trouble figuring out the twist early on, but that's OK; it's still a fun flick with a stellar cast.
