We're waiting for this pressure cooker of a scenario to go nuclear and spill gunk all over the pretty, expensive stuff. It never quite happens and, for all the actors' impeccable restraint, something is missing.
Viewed on its own terms, the remake does competent lip-service to the original.
The rare remake that honors the original but also finds its own reason for existing.
Freundlich's American remake of the Bier film flips the gender of the main characters, yielding predictably strong performances from Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams but otherwise removing the teeth...
After a point, the twists come so steadily that I actually found myself holding my breath for long stretches - despite the fact that I know the original well - eager to see how key revelations would play out within this new dynamic.
It would be difficult to invest in if not for its two main stars who work hard to elevate the overly engineered plot, filling in the emotional gaps left by the haphazard script.
It's an exhausting and frustrating movie, convinced of its own greatness and meaning, which only amplifies how bad everything is.
After The Wedding borders on melodramatic at times, but due to the amount of talent in front of the camera, it doesn't break the potential for feeling.
The film is full of big speeches and proclamations, and the clunky script and strained performances made it difficult to fully buy any of them.
The surprises are among the few pleasures in this ultimately forgettable, small film.
Never straying too far from the beats of the original piece (save some crucial gender shifts), these are great actors chewing the heck out of the screen.
Highly immersive and emotionally intuitive when it comes to the dramatic tension of its unique scenario, no matter some of the logistical questions it conveniently leaves unanswered.
