Critic Reviews for Aberdeen
Moland ... has a fine eye for landscapes, but an even surer touch with actors.
Grips us precisely because its actors are so utterly absorbed in their roles, so unfettered and nakedly expressive.
An uncompromising family tale, one that's dark but lyrical and moving in its rendering of the ties that bind even the most dysfunctional families, despite valiant efforts to destroy them.
Clean and transparent, with no movie director tricks.
Audience Reviews for Aberdeen
Good acting, writing. Pretty depressing. Both are pretty unlikable, but are interesting enough characters to get past it.
well acted but i hated the storyline it was pointless, strange and just tidious to watch after a while!
Cast: Stellan Skarsgård, Lena Headey, Charlotte Rampling, Ian Hart, Louise Goodall, Jason Hetherington, Jean Anderson, Kate Lynn Evans, John Killoran, John Harwood, Fergus McLarnon Director: Hans Petter Moland Summary: Kaisa (Lena Headey), a beautiful and feisty Scottish woman, finally has her life together - at least until her mother (Charlotte Rampling) asks an enormous favor: to bring back to her Kaisa's estranged, larger-than-life father (Stellan Skarsgard). The two of them, father and daughter together, set out on a wild, brutally funny yet heartbreaking journey, which takes them through their emotional past before reaching their ultimate destination. My Thoughts: "I was adding movies to my 'instant watch' que on netflix, when I accidently pushed play on this film. I was going to stop it, but thought, "why not?" It was in the end, a happy accident. The movie was a real surprise, and I enjoyed the film. It's quite dark, but acted out brilliantly by Stellan Skarsgard and Lena Headey. Their performances are what made this a four star film for me. There was just so much hurt and anger these characters. She hasn?t seen her father in fifteen years and wants no relationship with either parent. But in the end, shw gives in to her mothers wishes and that is where the journey begins for her and her estranged alcoholic father. Aberdeen is not particularly a pleasant film. In fact, at times it?s difficult to watch. It's an honest film, and Skargard plays his character so well. He is truly a great actor. Great film.. Give it a watch."
