  • Summary: In Diego Lerman's slyly comic drama Suddenly, a pair of knowing punkette malcontents (who call themselves Mao and Lenin) kidnap (sort of) Marcia, a frumpy lovelorn lingerie salesgirl. Mao announces her intention to seduce Marcia as the trio strikes out on a journey that is poignant, funny and unpredictable from beginning to end. (Empire Pictures) Expand

    Each new plot point in Suddenly occurs like the title says, but the passage between them is slow, steady, and sure.
  2. 80
    When Suddenly finds its soul in the last half-hour, the title begins to make a lovely sort of sense.
  3. Works its charms slowly but steadily.
  4. 70
    A humane, unassumingly quirky rumination on chance and caprice.
  5. Just when you think it's a violent drama, it turns into a comic road picture, before finally becoming a tender romance.
  6. Reviewed by: Rich Cline
    This isn't a straight-on comedy by a long shot. It's a quirky character study that will make everyone in the audience laugh at different places.
  7. 0
    I can't remember when I last hated an art-house movie as much as this one...Other reviewers have praised the film's alleged quirky humor, but I was repelled by the two heartless creeps who set the story in motion and baffled by the protagonist's fascination with them.
