What is the movie Water for Elephants about?
“Water for Elephants”, a romantic drama movie, is filmed on the basis on Sara Gruen's homonymous novel. The movie is centered on an aged Jacob Jankowski (Hal Holbrook) who decides to go to the circus one day alone, as his 71 year old son forgets to go with him. Circus workers find him in the circus and insist on helping him, despite the fact he is disagreeing. During their conversation, Jacob mentions he was a part of “The Benzini Circus” in 1931. The workers are intrigued and ask for the details. Jacob Jankowski starts recollecting his past coming back to the Great Depression times, prohibition era, when he was a 23-year-old Polish American Cornell student who had to leave the university after he was informed his parents had died in a car accident, as his father left huge debts and young Jacob needed to find a job. Accidentally, he got on the train with the Benzini Circus where he met Camel (Jim Norton) who helped him with the job. There he fell in love with a very beautiful woman Marlena (Reese Witherspoon), though she was married to August (Christoph Waltz) , charismatic, but very cruel head animal trainer and circus owner…

I liked this movie due to the fact that it was not overreacted with romance in it, as usually in movies of this kind, i was honestly worried for the heroes and hated the principal of the circus. And i remembered the phrase he said “What do you know about people suffering?” i think it was a very strong one. I watched this movie later one more time with my mother, and she was not thrilled about it as well, that is why i advise everyone to see it. The actors were simply great, and i can say that i enjoyed seeing it, and Thank God it is a happy end in the end of it. I think this is a magic and one of the most interesting stories about love that i have ever seen, and since the first seconds of watching it, all of my skeptic behavior has flew away. Robert Pattinson has shown himself from all a different angle, he and Reese were great at all the circus stuff they were doing. And the elephant Rose was amazing as well! This movie is teaching people such important things as friendship, importance of love and importance of taking care about each other!

So here to my attention has come a perfect movie, that looked very bright and juicy, and was full of passions and sensual games! The filming of this movie was very interesting, and the rog of the operator and the rest of crew was also a remarkable one for sure! this movie is multicolored and has a lot of sides- here there is something for people who love animals, and for the admirer of some ferric shows, and for the fans of love story, there are many amazing things in it, that will fill the soul with joy and happiness, i was looking for this kind of movie for a very long time actually.
The strongest part of this movie is the multi angled love triangle and the intersection of tough and passionate interests of the tender Marlene, and about the young and brave Jacob, as well as about the tyrant husband of Marlene. The last of the characters was performed by Christoph Waltz- and he is the basis on which the strongest moments of the movie rely on! it was interesting to see how the characters were changing little by little.

I am a huge fan of Robert Pattinson and i am trying really hard to watch all the movies with his appearance,that is why i was craving to see this movie, especially that here also performs Reese Witherspoon whom i also love and appreciate as a great actress! the performance that Robert and Reese have shown are above my all expectations, they perfectly dealed with their roles.It is interesting the fact that this movies i based on true events, in it are described the years of great depression in America, during the “dry” law. It was so hard working in the circus, especially considering the fact that they were not paid, and some of them were already old and disabled, these people were usually thrown away from the moving train.
The only terrible for me me moment in the movie, was that the elephant Rosie was beaten, i think it is awful when an animal is being cruelly persecuted. I enjoyed this movie very much, and already saw it a couple of times, that is why i can easily recommend it to sensitive and romantic people, same as i am!

This film is amazing, it is brilliant! Thanks to all the people, who have worked on this movie! This film has fulfilled my and my partner’s expectations! We had a great evening together admiring the beautiful story with very skillful and talented actors’ acing. Most of the time I had a feeling I was watching a movie produced during the studio movies era. Director and editors’ job showed high class and when you watch a movie you feel inside of it, totally grasped by characters’ feelings, emotions, actions and dialogues. This movie is worth every dime spent on it from all the possible points of evaluation. I rate this film ten out of ten. Highly recommended!
