This modest, warmhearted character study is carried by a solid lead performance from Anthony LaPaglia, who plays a man unable to express his feelings through anything but underhanded snark.
"A Month of Sundays" is so tidily plotted, so committed to its improve-thyself epiphanies, that it never transcends its own artifice.
[A Month of Sundays] offers a gentle exploration of a male perspective on grief, self-worth and human connection.
The film as a whole takes a well-worn trope and invests it with an unexpected emotional power.
Beautifully mounted, subtle, touching and bitter-sweet comedy drama... a thoughtful, moving, leisurely paced tale about loss and moving on.
The film is slow and boring, with the story weighed down by pointless scenes and a regular hollowness that saps the energy out of the piece.
It's a film about letting go, which may not sound very sexy, but Saville plays out this concept on a personal, intimate and relatable level that is powerful and moving.
[Director Saville has] given LaPaglia a role so good that it conjures up comparisons with his terrific work in Ray Lawrence's Lantana 15 years ago.
A quiet, tender-hearted and gently eccentric affair, the Australian-made A Month Of Sundays takes its own sweet time finding a way into your good graces.
Admirably subtle and sometimes sweetly funny.
We used to make more films like this, with a brain and a heart. Saville shows that we still can.
...looks and feels flat...
Been feeling lately that your ego has been getting the upper hand, that you are occasionally displaying tinges of arrogance or bad faith? This film will bring you back to earth. In the leafy suburbs of an Australian town, the real estate industry is in full swing, underquoting, schmoozing, lying, inflating the prices. In this milieu of Mammon, the hack agent Frank, who is losing the will to live, encounters Sarah, a beautiful aged woman, who reminds him of his mother. The film goes a long way into the territory of whom and what you have lost, and could lose, and the emotions of grief, nostalgia and regret, and what you did and didn't do. Anthony La Paglia plays the sorry agent perfectly, as he moves - with help - gradually out of his moribund state into doing the right thing and playing a meaningful role in others' lives. The brilliant NZ/Australian actor/comedian John Clarke is Frank's boss at the agency and delivers some very cynical and very funny moments. The support cast has many fine Australian actors. The film is beautiful to watch, and full of laconic Australian jokes. If you think you know a lot about life, this story will encourage you to reconsider that idea, and try to do better. Most of what you already believe about the real estate industry, though, will be confirmed.
