Here, director Mark Pellington seems to be aiming at a portrayal of nostalgia itself, with the people feeling it serving as necessary but ultimately unimportant vessels, the way a doctor researching cancer needs to see it working on a patient.
Only a few of the characters are well-developed enough to sustain the movie's interest, while the rest speak in obscure, poetic dialogue that repeats the central thesis ad nauseam.
Nostalgia" is an effective portrait of lives lived, told through shifting stories that examine the various ways in which we categorize our memories.
It's a film steeped in melancholy that gently reminds us to live life fully before it's time to say goodbye.
A well-meaning, expertly acted film, it unfortunately drowns in its own sorrow, making its commercial prospects dim.
From its scattered narrative to its morose musical score to its borderline criminal misuse of a talented cast, it is a clear front-runner for next winter's Worst Films of 2018 list.
This may be a tough movie to get into if you're not in the right frame of mind, but if you are, there is something here to cherish.
Chop 10 minutes off each segment and Nostalgia would have been a better film. As it is, it's a conversation starter for families and a reminder of the talents of its cast, but its lingering message isn't that distinctive.
Nostalgia wins all the awards for good intentions, but the film rarely hits a note that isn't false.
It is a truthful, heart-breaking movie that never veers far from the reality of life's tragic demands.
Not a movie for the young, but for those dealing with the philosophical questions you have at the taking-stock stage of life.
In this world, Nostalgia is a long drag.
