Critic Reviews for Departure
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.
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.
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.
A little languorous in places, it's nonetheless an interesting reflection on love, loss and being honest, above all with yourself. It also looks lovely thanks to DoP Brian Fawcett.
