Emotional Arithmetic (2008)
Critic Reviews for Emotional Arithmetic
A piece of advice for Canadian filmmakers -- don't make movies out of dreary CanLit novels. They're easy enough to spot.
There's a dense compression here that's meant to be elliptical and allusive but has just the opposite effect. Rather than resonate, the compression suffocates the life out of the picture and every actor in it.
Audience Reviews for Emotional Arithmetic
A very slow movie, but if you are willing to wait, you will not be disappointed. It's not filled with comedy or action, but the characters are very well-rounded and all of them give phenomenal performances. This movie does a beautiful job showing how people deal with trauma, loss, and pain, which is what the movie is about--feelings. If you don't like movies like that, then don't watch, but if you are into slower dramas, then this is certainly a pleasant surprise.
