Movie Info

Set in the heart of French Cathar Country, A Change in the Weather is the latest work from director Jon Sanders (Back to the Garden, Painted Angels), featuring longtime collaborators Anna Mottram and Bob Goody alongside celebrated German actress and singer, Meret Becker and featuring a screen debut from Nottingham playwright, Stephen Lowe. In an attempt to revisit a creative collaboration and revive his marriage, a theatre director brings together a group of performers to spend a week with him and his wife in an isolated, mountainous part of southern France. As the work progresses, fiction and reality become blurred and there is a constant tension between the characters' own lives and the nature of the work - an investigation into the changing nature of love. The couple are haunted by memories and dreams which, in the end, threaten not only the venture but the marriage itself. All this is underpinned by a sense of melancholy, reflected in the songs and music performed, and in the dramatic and implacably beautiful landscape.

  • This one... is particularly waffly, though when the cast stop talking, Sanders uses music and imagery to create resonant moods.

  • This experimental drama by Jon Sanders is brave and radical but not, sadly, enjoyable or engaging.

  • Brilliantly acted but doesn't leave you with much to ponder.

  • Some might find it all utterly insufferable, but, if you're receptive to the work of Joanna Hogg and other miniaturists of this sort, this is pretty good stuff.

    Jul 6, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • At moments of theatre like this, the film infuses the level of meaning into its painful subject matter that you feel it intended to.

    Oct 24, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A tendency towards navel-gazing improvised dialogue is balanced by evocative use of music and a poignant supernatural subplot.
