It is remarkable for its attention to detail, for its pure, striking and resonant images, and for its understanding of the full weight and value of human idiosyncracy.
Engaging biopic of the shy and introverted New Zealand writer/poet Janet Frame.
An Angel at My Table is, like many of Campion's films, a tale of the indomitability of the human spirit.
Anyone who can make a more than 2.5-hour biopic about a New Zealand writer feel as quick and fleet as this is clearly doing something extremely right.
radiantly beautiful filmmaking
Campion's knack for solitary yet paradoxically epic scope nibbles off Laura Jones's bite-sized scene-sketches of loneliness and makes entire meals of them.
A spiritually uplifting portrait of New Zealand poet and novelist Janet Frame.
Fascinating study of oversensitivity as future New Zealand poet laureate endures the slings and arrows of a unpoetic world bent on destroying poetry, or at least ignoring it. Kerry Fox is a round-eyed, trembling terror to behold as a writer mistakenly condemned to the mental ward. This was a television series?!? Excellent work by Campion.
Beautiful in every way.
A good film...err...okay I have to admit that I can't remember seeing it. Come on!! I see half a gazillion movies!! I have a check next to this film on my list so I must have seen it...hmmm..but for the life of me I can't remember it.
