the movie is wonderfully done but the director didn't get the point of the book at all
Hobbes Caltous (10 days ago)
whether the brutal book or the romanticized movie, this isn't a love story, it's the story about a tormented(and dimented) man's descent into hell, into perfect insanity. it's tragic love and obsession in its purest form. even as mean as he can be in the book, the story is about torment, and pain. what a lot of the haters don't really get is that Lolita is a very powerful character and she knew it from the get-go when it came to him. everything that happens as a result of the kiss is just tragedy in the making. it might now seem like it, but humbert was the victim even before they met. the guy just didn't have a prayer in hell. i've seen all these idiots commenting on this, and it's really sad, because the book would never survive in our world today, it would be put on the banned book list tout suite. you guys have no artistic vision.

Why in every video that talks about Lolita there’s a guy who comments “this is not a love story, that’s about pedophilia” Yeah they got it, right?

It is absolutly insane, that people argue if it is abuse. It definitly is. She is 12 or 14. Love is being interested in the others person wellbeing and he isn't, he is just obsessed with her.

I hate Humbert. People may have felt sympathy for him in the end but for me he'd always be a pedophile.

I can't deal with those comments about a "love story" or the other ones where they call themselves "nymphets" and talk about stories about "how they seduced old man" ... Guys ,you don't know how sexual abuse is in real life, isn't about a woman or a teenager screaming for help, there is something called child abuse cycle where the pedo goes, win the confidence of the kid, then starts the abuse and when it gets bad, the threats and the control start. Someone really close to me fell in this kind of abuse (like the movie) and some other people i know too, and the common denominator in all these stories is that they analized those things that happened in their childhood in their adulthood and realized that it wasn ' t normal and how their families didn't notice the abuse and how they lost their innocence and dignity because of all the things they made for the bastard and because of how naive they used to be at that age. It leaves scratch on their personalities and their minds forever. This F idealization is because of the "sugar daddy" trend. Search for Kate Yelkovan.

I wanna feel bad for Lolita but then she kinda was a brat and at the same time she wanted a sexual relationship with humbert. However he should of been the responsible adult and not lead her on. .....Urr this movie defiantly conflicts xD

It is a love story but it’s just extremely twisted. Even Adrian Lyne says it himself. I mean you can perceive it how you want but this is a story of one sided love.

Der Film von 1962 hat den Roman viel besser und schöner dargestellt. Ich finde, dass sich die Dominique Swain wie eine dumme Gans zeigt. Sue Lyon war viel viel besser in ihrer Rolle. Ihre Augen hatten was verführerisches an sich und sie hat sich normal benommen.
Christine H (4 months ago)
When I first watched this movie I was so confused why she didn’t want humbert anymore and after few more watch I realized that this was humbert’s side of the story now I get how much she was getting controlled by this man and realized that if we hear Lolita’s side it would be different losing her mother being with this old new man keep trying to have sex and keep her away from boys, plays from the school, and ect. She was just a girl who had curiosity of an old man. And he took it too far.

Reminder that the story is told from Humbert's point of view and when we feel for him it's because he's excelling at being an unreliable narrator and twisting the story in his favour. So even if we're aware that all he does is wrong and disgusting, somehow he still manages to instill that small seed of pity in most of us.

Love the movie, truly a fabulous interpretation of nabokov's creation. Opinions differ to the accuracy of the film but it's an interpretation which was handled more romantically in my opinion, still making it a great watch though!

Beautiful gorgeous repellant movie. Poignant and heartfelt yet still so awful how he manages to ignore her tears in the night, everynight, when they came.Her Bratty Demeanour Contrasts With His Mild Mannered elegance And That Masks The Degree Of Her Victimhood. She Is A 12-14 Girl Being Raped Every Day. Because she had a crush on him in the beginning and has a brash bratty side to her does not in any way change the fact. Or does It ..? He is certainly the most charming pedophile one could ever experience! Lovely haunting film that stays true to the novel. It drops with heartbreak.

People don't seem to get how horrible this is for everyone involved I do. This happened to me twice in my life. When I was approximately 13 maybe 14 a babysitter 18 + 19 + fell in love with me and I with her it was blatantly obvious it was Starstruck love at first sight it was two human beings that connected. She taught me a great lesson she never acted on it she cried and and try to stay away and eventually stop watching me when my parents went out of town. It was heartbreaking. But again she never acted on it. When I was much older in my twenties I fell in love with a very very young girl that you wouldn't really know it right away by looking at her she was about 15 and she felt the same way and luckily thank God in heaven we never acted on it either. I had enough willpower to stay out of a bad situation but it was love at first sight it was absolutely knock-down drag-out love eventually married have a couple of great kids and four grandkids but I never loved my wife one one millionth is much if it can be Quantified as such as the person who shall remain nameless. Life is a never-ending bombardment of cruel ironies. I personally have never been physically attracted two women that were younger than me by very much it was just this one other human being that I'd like to think was born out of her intended time slot. And there is not a Time that I don't think of her that I met grateful that I did not act on it at all. It's funny because I wasn't really worried about the legality of such a romance. What I was worried about is growing old in front of someone that I cherished. I would not do that to another human being

Its a love story.. The only fault of humbert is.... He fall in love with lolita..but I thought..it's not a fault..it's a love..he love lolita until the end of his life..and lolita is the one who seduced humbert.. Its a sad love story..😭😭

Bethany De Los Santos (1 year ago)
I personally think its a love story for Humbert's point of view and I do feel for him bc its not like it was something he could control or wanted to control i feel like he wasn't trying to be perverted at first but then Lo kept testing him and I feel like he followed his heart even tho he knew that what he was doing was wrong. But I don't believe everything was entirely his fault Lolita was going along with it in her own way and trying to get his attention

There is such a huge difference between the book and the movie. In the book Humbert is clearly a rapist, but the movie is a 'love story'. In other words, the book is fucked up, the movie is emotional
reese bais (1 year ago)
Having the director say that this movie is a love story makes it sound 'okay' to be a rapist. Everyone should read the book and understand the only brain and only perspective of the author of this story. Gawd

In the book people say he is abusive and rapes her and that's horrible, but that does not mean that movie Humbert is any better. Even if Lolita told him to do stuff to her it's still wrong. No matter what pedophilia will never be a love story. The movie is not a love one it's a movie about how gross people are. A middle aged man and a little girl having sex is and always will be disgusting

I thought that "Lolita" was a very good movie. Very well put together. It is a controversial topic but that doesn't mean that it shouldn't be talked about. Nabokov was very smart to put it in Humbert's eyes rather than Lolita's, it brings friction to the topic that no one could've imagined! Who could imagine everyday joe's fighting over whether a story about abuse is considered a romance or crime story. I think it's about time we get an accurate book/movie from *Lolita's* eyes.
Jasmine Herrick (1 year ago)
I relate to Lolita so much!! Her personality and the story overall is so much similar to my life! When I first saw this when I was 15 (I'm 19 now) I was shocked by the similarity . When I was 13 I had a thing with An almost 30 year old man. Which ended in tragedy. I love this movie so much, its beautiful yet heart breaking .

ScallywagJac (1 year ago)
The story of Lolita is so deeply sad. It's a lot more romanticised in the film but she plays around, flirting like 12-14 year olds do (she was 12 in the book and 14 in the film if I remember correctly) and he takes advantage of that. There IS a scene in the film where you're given a little insight into how Lolita is feeling but it's very brief SPOILERS It's the moment after the sex scene where she's sitting on his lap, reading a comic. She lays down on the bed and ignores him and, after he leaves, she just carries on laying on the bed in tears. But that's the only real scene that gives you any idea of the pain that Lolita is going through. Everything else is made out to be so tender and loving and the book just wasn't like that.

read the enchanter by Vladimir Nabokov, and dont be ashamed by these idiots they seem to forget our forefathers of all races on earth would take up brides at the right age, now days we wait so long that the old bitch loses her mind and things she is the man of the house and has rights over the man . Every sense they raised the age and gave women the free will to choose there mate the divorce , single , and cheat rate is the highest its ever been. [Side note ] only for the real gentleman and wise fellow . The Enchanter is a novella written by Vladimir Nabokov in Paris in 1939. As Волшебник (Volshebnik) it was his last work of fiction written in Russian. Nabokov never published it during his lifetime. After his death, his son Dmitri translated the novella into English in 1986

It's strange how in the movie they make it out that Humbert is the victim, that Deloris manipulates him and hurts him but in the book Humbert is the villain, the movie romanticises too much.
peony (7 months ago)
Humbert is a very sensitive and emotionally unstable person, so i can get that even he knows she is a kid it makes him go crazy because he feels like a kid himself deep down. Yes, he actually was sexually attracted to her, but what is really tragic is that he fell deeply in love with her, and couldnt stop it, and what im thinking why he was freaking so out is that he knew he is gonna fail and loose her. At least, thats my opinion.
Mia (1 year ago)
not really. we see him going crazy twords the end and there is a scene in a hotel where he basically rapes her. he starts going crazy and she is hurt. she doesn't know what she wants and Humbert does. He is riddled with disgust in himself for taking advantage of her. he feels she has control over him. let's not forget Lolita is that one that starts it. she makes very suggestive moves twords the beginning and then later desides she doesn't want to be with him. Humberts feelings never change hers do. he is a rapist but the whole story is very tragic. it also doesn't help we get the story only from humberts veiw.

By far one of my favorite movies, but it's not a movie I would tell someone it's my favorite because people might think I like the idea of a pedophile and a girl dating. Honestly my favorite thing about the movie is the setting the 1940s I'm so fascinated by the fashion and just such an amazing era also I just love how emotional this movie made me feel and the confusion... it's so amazing what this movie made you feel. Lolita should of won an academy award

Oscar level performances were denied due credit because of the touchy subject matter. People are often two faced.  It is a part of the human experience to appreciate the budding beauty of young women. While these girls are unacceptable as partners due to age and mental immaturity-- they occasionally do act as Lolita did.  The conflicts and issues presented are fair game to re-illuminate in this movie version of the  classic. Like the paintings of the masters ,this  movie will only be appreciated for the mastery of the performances as time passes.
