I had to go press my ear to the rears to see if they were doing anything, and got nothing much in return. Consequently, I am giving this to the R4 as it respects our cosmopolitan society somewhat more. Just as Mike Nichols, in the midpoint of his career around this film's time of release, began giving his films less atmosphere, less edge, less intensity which would later return with films like Primary Colors and Closer , Harrison Ford's performances are normally quite stilted, even if he tends to be in very enjoyable movies, many of them classics. This display device is 16x9 capable. Bening and Ford work hard during their more intimate scenes together, but they haven't been given the dialogue of truth and tentative exploration that they need to work with.

Married adults kiss and caress once with open shirts and are shown in bed nude, but only the man's chest is shown. He can remember almost nothing of his previous life, to be sure, and has to take it on trust that he has this wife and daughter.

Not surprisingly, the former yuppie scum sets out to atone for his previous mistakes, learns how to love his wife a decidely ornamental Bening , daughter and pooch and realises that, hey! Themes include gratitude and integrity. Regarding Henry is about a man who projects a cold, emotional shell and seems as if he cares nothing for anyone but himself, full of malice that seems like simple inconsideration, a self-centered cockiness, and an extreme difficulty with allowing mutual understanding amongst those close to him, especially his uneasy wife and unhappy daughter. Shadow detail is pretty good, although not excellent, and the image is generally quite sharp and well defined. A character goes to a movie not realizing it's a porn theater; grunting and moaning are heard off camera and we see the character's repulsed reaction. As his life unravels before him, Henry realizes that his picture-perfect marriage was despicable. When he is shot incidentally in a robbery, because his emotional shell drops for no one, not even an armed thug in a convenience store, he recovers over the course of a few months, with serious brain injury, reverting him to an almost childlike state, thus a primal, basic form of himself, and a truly sensitive, caring person emerges, completely naive to the value system of his former self.

After a long coma, Henry survives only to find that he has no memory and must re-learn everything from reading to tying his shoes.

Summary Regarding Henry is an interesting story about a man who learns to like his new life and see his life changing experience as a positive thing rather than a negative. The story about a man's physical, mental, and emotional recovery from paralysis and amnesia is very personal to the character of Henry, so there's not much to relate to if you're not a mature adult.
However, the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ is understated in this otherwise poignant, well-produced story of repentance, forgiveness and grace. Do you wish you could have his life? As he recovers at home, he forms new bonds with his wife and daughter. On the long, slow road to recovery he starts to put the pieces of his old life back together, and he doesn't like what he learns about it. Still, there was no problem understanding what was being said, and that is the important thing in this film. Reborn as a friendly, childlike innocent, Henry charms his therapist Bill Nunn and reconnects with his wife and daughter, only to uncover some secrets about how truly appalling he once was. These kinds of scenes are generally early on in the film with the result that we never get a particularly good image of Henry before he is crippled and set back to zero.
His wife and daughter help him remember things about his past. After Henry gets caught in the middle of a robbery and is shot in the head, he wakes from a coma to find that he has amnesia and can't even remember how to do the simplest of tasks.

But the movie isn't really about the gunshot wound, anyway. With complete loss of memory and most of his motor skills, Henry begins physical therapy.
