Review - Her

Spike wrote a beautiful script for Her. Though there are few characters, the building up of characters was phenomenal. The plot is developed in the near future and it is easy for viewers to behold it. The music was another thing to be appreciated. It was excellent in matching up with the emotions and scenes which took place. 

This movie has a lot to say about the ways human nature will evolve in future. There is some humour added in this emotional love tale. The screenplay is so engaging which keeps you attached to the screens. Her is brilliantly written with a unique story and direction.

Her 2013

Talking about the acting, Joaquin was phenomenal. He nailed the role of a lonely writer desperate for love. There is no Scarlett as a physical body in the film, She plays the role of an OS and she was brilliant with the voice, every emotion were captured through her voice. Supporting actor Amy did a great job, also there is Chris Patt in a small good role. 

After the direction and performances, it is the time to mention the music and camera works. They made the film even more beautiful.

Her is an adult-themed based love story known for its uniqueness.
