A warmhearted, quietly ambitious film.
A leftfield comedy of the mundane with a sci-fi edge, 'Skeletons' doesn't quite know what to do with its bold ideas.
It's decidedly low budget, but sufficiently inventive enough to have won the Michael Powell prize for being the best of British at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
Since the mannered storytelling never really draws us in, we're too often left to contemplate the film's oddity instead of its emotional conflicts.
This surreal and quirky British comedy-drama benefits from strongly resonant performances that help us go along with the absurdist plot.
with its pitch-perfect performances, surreal streak of humour, strong sense of place and poignant notes of melancholy, it might just be the finest cult film to have come from Britain since Withnail and I (1987).
Writer/director Nick Whitfield is clearly a talent to watch.
A fairly solid debut, a decent calling card for Whitfield - it will be interesting to see what he does next - and a welcome signal that the British film industry isn't completely bereft of ideas.
This primitive effort needed much more work on the screenplay, a director with some grasp of pace, and a budget that could have done justice to its ideas.
One hesitates to over-praise such a delicate, small-scale work, but Whitfield seems like a major talent.
Balancing oddity and fantasy with real emotions and pain is a difficult trick to pull off. Whitfield has managed it nicely.
Thank you Richard for recomending this! An eccentricly Charlie Kaufman-esque award winning gem (Edinburgh festival) that is worth watching, uses large dozes of dry British humour to deliver a strangely heartfelt, and very funny story with a lead duo that can only be compared to Travolta/Jackson in Pulp Fiction.
Unusual British comedy. Two professional ... well, I'm not sure what the word is for what they are,.... two professional thingys then .... extract skeletons from peoples closets, metaphysically and literally, with the aid of a hummy thing with lights and a comprehensive questionnaire to be completed first by the closet owners. In order to get promotion, they take on a tricky case but it proves more complicated than they expect. Dot dot dot.
More giggly than belly-laugh full , with a sweet centre.
