Schöne Bilder, Interessante Rückblicke und eine überraschende Story.
Then I realized that I shouldn't be so quick to judge which is the story of my life, and just give it a chance. I ended up REALLY liking it! Movies that are about simplicity, are my favorite. My favorite movie of all time (12 Angry Men) gives that sense to its viewers. But they are never simple movies! They just give off that feeling so you can now digest the complexity of it.
In this particular film they talk in a hotel conference room where the wedding they're at is held, go up stairs, hang out on the roof for some air for maybe 5-10 minutes, go back to the hotel room, then outside into cabs ... end movie.
However, in the midst of this "simplicity" we find out the relationship between the two characters, the severity of the situation, and the feelings of the two. So we think, "what's going to happen next here? I wonder how this is going to affect their lives and the lives of those close to them?"
And if you want to think like a filmmaker (blocking, hiting marks on the correct timing, yet still making it believeable, this or that angle for this part with this monologue during), it just gets even more complex and not so simple anymore. All of this "simplicity" went through my mind while viewing,
I recommend for any avid movie goer that's slightly more interested than your average person. The "tactic" or the "gimmick" of this film that probably was the reason on what sold it to the right people to get it made, may be a turn off to your average movie goer.
The camera was not flattering really to Helena Bonham Carter who looks closer to 49 than the 39 of her character. Perhaps it is a reflection of the heaviness of her heart. She is at times brutally hones to Aaron, not seeming to realize how much pain he is in. Or at least not caring.
Aaron Eckhart's performance really stands out as the injured lover. Good flick with a nice bottle of wine.
One thing I did not understand was the title of the film.
