Beyond The Fire (2009)
Critic Reviews for Beyond The Fire
As well-intentioned as it is deathly dull, this moody, London-set indie attempts to fuse a sprawling, right-on social agenda with a tenderly wrought mismatched romance and doesn't manage to say anything interesting about either.
It's frightfully sincere and the sex scenes are a whole new level of unconvincing.
Quite simply one of the more embarrassing films we've ever seen, Beyond The Fire is bad in a way that only a film aspiring to deal with a serious, sensitive subject and falling flat on its face can be.
The acting, script and production values rarely rise above film-school level and, once she has drawn him some anatomical diagrams (really!), the bedroom scenes are just awful.
This is high-stakes drama, bordering on realist melodrama. There are some awkward moments. Yet its heartfelt, unironic belief in the power of love is attractive.
