"Fragile" is one of the most scary movies I've ever seen and one of the most beautiful and sensitive. I saw it in Venice and I can tell you that people were really impressed at the end. Some people were even crying, specially women. I confess I was one of them. Calista's performance is deep and strong. The same with Richard Roxbough, Elena Anaya and specially the little girl who plays "Maggie". She is incredibly good. Really special. It's definitely the best movie of Jaume Balagueró. Even better than "THE NAMELESS". A very sensitive approach to the <more>
ghost genre in the best classical tradition. Serious and emotional horror stuff.
I just finished watching Jaume THE NAMELESS, DARKNESS Balaguero's third film FRAGILE starring Calista Flockheart. It is no secret that I enjoy his work but I really think this is his best film. It is both incredibly scary and emotionally sensitive something I haven't seen in a horror film since, uh, forever . Balaguero has an amazingly subtle style but he builds the suspense perfectly for the first half. The second half is nearly all chills and they really gave me goosebumps something I haven't experienced in, uh, a while . He also throws in an excellent twist that would make <more>
M. Night envious. And he isn't afraid to take risks as a filmmaker you'll understand what I mean by the end . Easily one of the best horror films I have seen this year
6.2 votes equal to fragile. And 'now clear that this site has a strong antipathy towards the horror film. If this movie had been in Stephen King would have had more. For me to go to pieces is the comment by Aaron1375. AARON STILL TU, quache distant relative of SHARON? Restless character already seen previously. Why make comparisons between SILENT HILL AND MIRRORS? E '100 times better this movie. Silent hill comes from a video. Do you have anything like the original film plot. There are mediocre film recited by actors who have high ratings as we are beautiful film recited by people <more>
less known. This site is so. In this movie there is a coup scene that leaves us with mouth open the others kind of Nicole Kidman. But since this movie and played by Sutherland takes one vote less. that's disgusting. Arise THE VOTE! Same thing for mirrors.
The scariest horror of the 2000's so far... (by matheusmarchetti)
"Fragile" has to be one of the scariest films I've ever seen. It was such a bad idea to watch this film right before going to bed! I had to sleep with the lights turned on. The whole concept of the film is just terrifying, the child hospital setting is just perfect to create the mood and the atmosphere. The film also, as mentioned in some reviews before, mixes Japanese horror with the old school European horror, most notably films like Suspiria, which is a real treat. One thing that left me quite surprised is the fact that this film was made in the 2000's, and a small number <more>
of good, scary horror films have been released in this decade so far, other examples are "The Others", "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "The Orphanage". The only problem with the film is that it is a bit confusing, but don't let it let you down. Watch this film. You'll one hell of a good time and one hell of a scare.
Another excellent film by an excellent genius! (by pedrosmgfan)
This film is scary,beautiful,with good actors and a beautiful soundtrack. Calista Flockhart is very good, and Richard Roxburgh,Gemma Jones,Elena Anaya,etc,are also great!Jaume Balagueró does it again;this Spanish genius demonstrated his great talent in horror films in "Los sin nombre" and "Darkness"."Fragile" continues being as good as the previous films. The film reflects a North American woman who arrives to England to work as a nurse in a children's hospital in the days in which this hospital is going to close its doors. But there is something scary that <more>
watchs in that hospital,something that terrifies the children and it does not let to them leave... As far as the soundtrack,composed by the always excellent Roque Baños,it is really beautiful.Pain is one that is not continued making music for films like this one.Well,in summary,see this film because you are not going it to be sorry.
Mercy Falls Children's Hospital on the Isle of Wight is about to close down for good.With a train crash filling up the intended transfer hospital,the remaining eight children and skeleton staff are forced to wait for a few days before they can leave.Barely holding on to her self-control following an earlier,devastating case of alleged negligence,night shift nurse Calista Flockhart is alarmed by an unusual number of cases involving broken bones among the children.The kids themselves talk ominously of a "mechanical girl" on the abandoned,apparently haunted second <more>
floor."Fragile" is another creepy horror winner from Jaume Balaguero of "Darkness" and "The Nameless" fame.It relies on uneasy atmosphere of dread instead of gore and shocks.Lingering shots of darkened,empty corridors and carefully timed moments of genuine alarm totally creeped me out.Give this eerie and depressing gem a look.
When I thought movies wouldn't scare me anymore... came this. (by EvaSalvi)
What could I say about "Fragile"? Well... it was a rainy evening in my town totally true, not to give effects , and instead of going to the town party I decided to go to the cinema. I had a good idea because I've always admired Balagueró Los Sin Nombre... great , and I love horror films too, but, like I've said, I had seen three horror movies before and none of them really frightened me. So I got to the cinema and waited for it to start. The atmosphere is very good, it seems they worked a lot to make it, but not only the atmosphere was right like in other films, the story <more>
is convincing too, not just "killing-screaming-the end". It starts about a nurse who goes to work in a hospital in an English island. The hospital is about to be closed and the few children who are still there are supposed to be out of there soon. But it's not as easy as it seems, strange things happen in that hospital, one of the girls see somebody who lived and died there, and that "somebody" hurts the kids, by breaking their bones most of the times. The real interest is in what is behind that story, who is that somebody, and why he or she behaves like that. The acting is correct, Elena Anaya, Richard Roxburgh finally a good role for him! , Calista Flockhart and the kids work efficiently. And most... I'd never been so frightened for a long time. I think that good stories are that which scare me. The same happened with "The Changeling" somehow similar, somehow different . But worth seeing both of them. I recommend it.
Like my worst nightmare came true (by blackdogone)
I like horror movies. "Fragile" is like nowadays "japanese-horror" movies, but with a bit of European soul added. Everything's set to get you some goosebumps. An old children's hospital that is about to being closed, moody soundtrack, great set decorations and props and makeup, and sound effects that make you jump out of your skin sometimes. The movie hit a bullseye for me. Hospitals and abandoned places scare the hell out of me so watching this movie was like my worst nightmare came true. It was definitively scarier than The Ring. If you get the creep from <more>
hospitals, abandoned places and stuff like that, I do recommend this movie.
A scary, suspenseful yet whimsical story..... (by madtavyboy)
The reviews coming out of Venice were not kind. Indeed some reviews on this site in the message boards were not kind.....OK we are not talking about Oscar material but this film is scary in a non-gory, blood-on-walls, way and is entertaining. If cinema should be fun and a time to suspend belief then this film is OK. If you want challenging subject matter or top drawer acting look elsewhere....if you want to be scared and entertained then go for it. Flockhart is fine, the kids are good, Roxborugh is good, Anaya is good.....just don't expect too much. The sound and cinematography are very <more>
good and Jaume Balagueró holds it all together well enough....the story ticks along and builds to the final showdown and you begin to feel some empathy and understanding of the characters but we never dwell long enough on any one character....and we don't really care how or why they are in the hospital all we want to know is well they ever leave?
