Critic Reviews for Departure

  • The dynamics are given plenty of time to play out in this delicate, somewhat laboured character drama, which could almost be seen as a hymn to the great British art of not really talking about stuff.

  • Simply very moving.

  • Ultimately, Departure doesn't do anything that hasn't been done before, and what it does do isn't enough for us to overlook that.

  • Steggall indulges watery metaphors, but draws emotive work from Stevenson and pinpoints the uncertainty of life's tipping points.

    January 2, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • This is water colour territory, the palette dominated by blues and greens - beautifully captured by up-and-coming DoP Brian Fawcett - Jools Scott's music subtly affecting and the mood as melancholy as rain running down a window pane.

    August 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While theatre director Andrew Steggall's debut feature is beautifully shot, and the landscapes of southern France accentuate the elegiac tone, the drama is overwrought at times.
