  • "... Sehen Sie genau hin beim meistdiskutierten Film des Jahres. Intelligent, provozierend und unverschämt witzig hat American Beauty beim Publikum auf der ganzen Welt einen Nerv getroffen und wird bereits als Meilenstein der Filmgeschichte gehandelt!... sehen Sie genau hin bei dem mit den meisten Auszeichnungen bedachten Film des Jahres. American Beauty konnte 5 Oscars verbuchen, taucht in über 275 Top 10-Listen auf und wurde von über 65 Kritikern zum besten Film des Jahres erkoren. Das aussergewöhnliche Regiedebut von Sam Mendes in Zusammenarbeit mit Drehbuchautor Alan Ball wurde von Kritikern und Publikum gleichermassen beispiellosem Lob bedacht!... sehen Sie genau hin bei der meistgelobten Besetzung des Jahres, angeführt von Kevin Spacey und Annette Bening als die unvergesslichen Lester und Caroly Burnham, ein scheinbar ganz normales Paar in einem anonymen Vorort, dessen Ehe - und Leben - langsam auseinanderzufallen droht. Von der ersten Minute bis zum haarsträubenden Ende ist American Beauty ein absolutes Meisterwerk, das sein Publikum unterhält und dazu herausfordert ... in den nächsten Jahren genau hinzusehen!"
  • "Una divertida, conmovedora e impactante travesía por la vida de los suburbios de Estados Unidos. Mira de cerca a Lester Burnham un publicista cuarentón y a su elitista esposa Carolyn, mientras su matrimonio y sus vidas se desenredan lentamente. A Lester lo odia su esposa, su hija lo desprecia y su jefe está a punto de ponerle la soga al cuello. Mira más de cerca cuando Lester decide hacer unos cuantos cambios en su vida. Entre más libre es, más feliz es. Pero Lester está a punto de aprender que el costo de la libertad tiene un precio final. -- Envase."

  • "Per il regista Sam Mendes un esordio cinematografico eccellente, con questo film che mise d'accordo sia critica che pubblico e che vinse l'oscar. Le relazioni coniugali nei ceti dell'alta borghesia sono le tematiche affrontate nel film, una pellicola che è una commedia, ma dai toni e dai sapori drammatici, dove si mettono a nudo e in trasparenza tutte le falsità che si creano nei rapporti interpersonali che fanno spesso sentire le persone come chiuse e bloccate nelle loro abitudini e che sfociano in quotidianità domestiche sempre più apatiche. Kevin Spacey è fantastico in questo film che gli fece guadagnare l'Oscar e qui interpreta il ruolo di Lester Burnham, un uomo infelice del proprio lavoro e che deve vedersela invece con le ambizioni della moglie, una donna in carriera, che inevitabilmente lo trascura e con una figlia alle prese con le sue crisi adolescenziali e che farà entrare in scena una sua amica, provocante e sensuale, che entrerà nei sogni proibiti di suo padre."

Il rapporto si spezza quando lui perde la testa per una amica della figlia, che nel frattempo intraprende una relazione con il timido vicino di casa Jim, che vive con un padre oppressivo."
  • "Lester Burnham ha passato il traguardo dei quarant'anni, quasi senza accorgersene: vive una vita monotona con la moglie Carolyn, agente immobiliare e la figlia Jane. Succede che a Lester viene annunciato il licenziamento dal giornale in cui lavora. La crisi professionale si affianca a quella con la moglie: con Carolyn, arrivista senza scrupoli, la convivenza è ormai ridotta al minimo. Un giorno Lester conosce Angela , amica della figlia, e subito se ne invaghisce. Il continuo pensiero della ragazza gli fa intravedere un modo nuovo di guardare alla vita. Comincia a far ginnastica e stringe amicizia con il giovane figlio dei vicini, Rick. Carolyn corteggia Buddy Kane, ricco uomo d'affari con cui inizia una relazione. Lester intanto tenta un approccio con Angela, ma senza successo. Intanto Lester ritrova la voglia di parlare, di stare in mezzo agli altri. Tutto ciò sarà fatale: il padre di Rick, ex-marines in pensione, convinto che il figlio abbia una relazione omosessuale con Lester, punta una pistola alla tempia di Lester e lo uccide."@it

Bombardé de fantasmes sexuels, il décide de changer sa vie pour retrouver sa jeunesse et sa liberté. Mais cette transformation horrifie Carolyn et déconcerte Jane. La première s'engage alors dans une liaison adultère et la seconde sympathise avec un voisin solitaire et secret." [(c) Médiafilm]."
