The Whale is a film directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Brendan Fraser, who one suspects will win an Oscar... and an excellent Sadie Sink,

It is based on a play by Samuel D. Hunter.

Like you, we had no desire to see it and it surprised us everywhere.It's what you'd expect: melodramatic as hell and yes, it's about a man with hyper-obesity.

The Whale Movie Plot 

A university professor can barely get out of his chair. He teaches his classes online, and his obesity makes him realize the obvious: if he doesn't do something about it, he'll be dead in a few days.

The Whale Movie Review

Melodramatic as hell, this film is not suitable for a happy day or anything else. From the very first sequence it is played out by the performance of Brendan Fraser, who needless to say plays the role he will be considered a great actor for (he had already proven this) and Sadie Sink, who plays the daughter and is the centre on which the story revolves.

A very good melodramatic script and excellent direction by Aronofsky, who surprises us by completely changing course and going down the sentimental route, coming out no longer angry, but totally victorious in this extremely difficult undertaking: making a good film out of a maudlin concept.

Full of careful and even necessary literary references (the film's title comes from Herman Melville's novel). It is studied in every shot, faithful to the mathematical style of the director who, this time applied to feeling and sincerity (the whole film is about that, precisely) makes us an ironic reflection on cinema, sincerity and the possibility of making a careful and meticulous work of melodrama.

I don't know if we can recommend it, because it's not a tasteful dish to see how a man destroys his life by feeling sorry for himself and, at the end of the day, it's a paradox of how to "do well" through sacrifice and, through lying, achieve honesty.

A whole complex discourse hidden in, seemingly, a melodrama that is born with no story other than seeing how a man falls apart and the director manages to tell a whole story that takes shape behind it with cinematic elegance, dexterity and, of course, with a pre-oscarised Brendan Fraser who clearly deserves it.

Our verdict about The Whale Movie

Good and even memorable, but you really have to want to put this bitter sweet in your mouth.
