Un estudiante de veterinaria sin recursos económicos, Jacob, conoce y se enamora de Marlena, la estrella de un circo de otra época. Ambos descubren la belleza que existe bajo la carpa del circo, y empiezan a conectar a través del sentimiento que les suscita un elefante muy especial. Contra todo pronóstico lo que incluye la furia del carismático pero peligroso marido de Marlena, August, Jacob salva a Marlena de una vida desgraciada y ambos encuentran al amor de su vida.
Llama la atención la exquisitez de la imagen mostrada en pantalla. El director ha elegido un color vivo, sin saturaciones, con una tonalidad perfecta. La definición es también otro aspecto llamativo en esta película, la cual muestra todos los planos nítidos, sin emborronamientos y con una calidad indiscutible. También llaman la atención los intensos negros y la perfecta iluminación en todas las tomas.
El sonido ofrece un buen estéreo en pantalla y algunos efectos envolventes, pero pocos, la verdad. El subgrave se pone de manifiesto en muy pocas ocasiones. NO obstante, la calIdad en general es impecable. Destaca el buen doblaje y la perfecta sincronización en las voces.

We open with an old man (Hal Holbrook) wandering into the parking lot of a circus that is packing up and moving out. A workman comes out to see if he is lost and invites him in out of the rain while the man calls the nursing home. The old man looks at the old black and white circus photos on the wall and recalls out loud which circuses they are from. This grabs the worker's attention and he mentions the Benzini Brothers Circus tragedy from years ago. The old man says he was there and the worker asks him to tell him about it. We flash back to a younger gentleman played by Robert Pattinson and the movie is played out as a flashback of the old man's story.
Although I never would have expected it, Robert Pattinson plays out a perfect Jacob. That irresistible smile he gets on his face when he's around the animals definitely lets us connect with Jacob the way we wanted to see him connecting with Rosie the elephant. Perfect choice for the part!
Christoph Waltz was a decent August, the ring master and circus owner. I pictured someone larger and darker, maybe more Italian looking, when I was reading the book but August's charm and charisma as a business man, and brutality and harshness as a monster, really made him a different type of character that readers will both appreciate and despise. We really see him on the verge of snapping and just how quickly it can happen. There is one scene where he becomes angry with Rosie that really sets that uncomfortable tone you get from him in the book.
Reese was Reese, what can I say. She's beautiful to look at, but just not as sexy and alluring as Marlena comes across sometimes in the book. Still a decent performance from her though and she and Robert make a cute couple.
Speaking of sex, there's a lot of it in the book including a strip tease tent in the circus. Those scenes are in the movie, but treated with dignity and careful camera angles - obviously allowing this movie its PG13 rating. It drags in places where we have to witness the slow glances and connections being made between Jacob and Marlena. August's discovery of the two is a bit rushed, but after that the action picks up making the last half of the movie pretty solid. The sad redlighting treatment of circus workers being thrown from the train out of spite and to lighten the financial load is there, balanced with a breathtaking scene of Jacob and August walking across the top of the train in motion. And then there's old Rosie, and you can't help but smile along with Jacob at the gentle beast when she performs or is providing comedic relief.
Non-book readers might find the movie a bit slow at times but will enjoy it overall. After all, we each have our own favorite circus act, right? Some book lovers will certainly be disappointed, but if you try hard to approach the movie with a different set of eyes (and lower your expectations just a tad) you will be well entertained. I know I was.
Don't worry about the movie ruining the novel. The movie does an excellent job following Gruen's lead. It is common knowledge that the movie can never cover everything that happens in the book, but I was still very impressed with the quantity they did fit into the movie. The main events in the novel were portrayed well on the big screen. The movie producers did well using Gruen's detail in the book to develop the ultimate circus appearance. From the pink lace Marlena performs in, to the beautiful circus colors, this movie has it spot on.
This isn't your typical Notebook romance where their love is the main concentration. It's a love story amongst the darkness and hardships of being in a circus. The storyline is interesting, there are so many other things going on besides the building romance between Jacob and Marlena. Although, once the romance takes off, the move goes with it and has a tasteful twist at the end.
Some critics have ripped apart this movie, saying Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson lack chemistry and fail to represent Jacob and Marlena in Gruen's novel. When I put in this movie I was expecting it to be awkward, like Pattinson in the Twilight movies, but thankfully I was wrong. Robert Pattinson did an excellent job as Jacob. He dominated the screen with his good looks and his shining smile. He let the audience in on Jacob's animal lover personality by irresistibly glowing around the circus animals. Reese Witherspoon was amazing playing her part, as always.
Water for Elephants has beautiful cinematography, a wonderful cast, and a mesmerizing storyline. I loved it. I recommend this movie to everyone. Robert Pattinson really outdid this movie. This is the best I've seen him. If you're a softy for animals and romance, you're going to love this one.
