A hopeless romantic review
By Jack Anderson on March 25, 2018
 (10/10)

STORY
The story of the film is quite simple. This makes for a classical fable of our times.

FOUR MAIN CHARACTERS, YES
There are precisely four main characters in this film. Rose Dewitt Bukater and Jack Dawson, of course. But who are the other two, you ask? The other two are: the Titanic itself (herself) and the music. Let me go through those.

ROSE DEWITT BUKATER
Kate Winslet was simply the perfect choice for the role of Rose Dewitt Bukater. She beautifully plays this character with both the wild attitude inside a serious and somehow depressed temper.
It is not a coincidence if Kate Winslet had a great career after that film.

JACK DAWSON
Leonardo DiCaprio is one of my all time favourite actors. He performs his role in a very serious matter.

TITANIC
The Titanic is without any single doubt one of the main characters from this film. I still remember going to see a movie with my schoolmates (Seven Years in Tibet) and seeing the trailer of Titanic at the beginning of the screening. I was stunned. Speechless. I had to see this film. I had never ever seen something as majestic on screen. I still have in my mind the very precise image of the Titanic sinking and being half-outside in the dark.
Because cinema is about opening doors to unknown or past or even future territories. Cinema is a proxy for us to go through those places and live other people’s lifes. But at that time, I had never imagined that I would be able to go inside the Titanic. And this is exactly what this movie does.

CRAFTMANSHIP
I will not call this paragraph special effects, but craftmanship. The level of details provided to this film is immense. You must see the behind the scenes footage of the film.

AMBITION AND COURAGE
It took lots of guts and a huge ambition to make this film. Imagine that James Horner went deep into the ocean in order to film the original Titanic itself. He then went back to the shoers and then built half of the Titanic on one of the largest set ever constructed. The movie kept going over budget and the film was already referred as the biggest disaster of all time in the movie industry. The budget was so high (at the time) that Fox had to split the costs with Paramount in a deal where actually both studios were furious at James Cameron, who continues to spend money and had an apparently tyrannic attitude. What is even more interesting is to read about the shooting of the film, knowing that at the end, Titanic will become the highest grossing film of all time, with $2.18 billion of earnings. The movie that will surpass this success will actually be Avatar, also directed by James Cameron.

SOUNDTRACK
The soundtrack from the late James Horner is, along with Braveheart, my favourite of his. The mix of Irish atmosphere and high pitch voices made it one of the biggest success in the history of soundtracks. It is still, to this day, the highest grossing orchestral soundtrack of all time, selling over 30 million copies. I remember going to the store and purchasing the original soundtrack, which I listened forever. And I also remember going to that same store and purchasing « Back to Titanic », the second soundtrack, with some music from the band I Salonisti. The 12-minutes long Epilogue song from that album is extremely moving.

SUMMARY
I love this film deeply and could watch it over and over again. I give it 10 out of 10. I know, I’m a hopeless romantic.
