With a short run time of 1 hour 11 minutes, this is one party I wish had lasted at least 20 minutes longer. The writing /dialogue is witty, intelligent, hilarious and loads of fun. As secrets are revealed, the dynamics shift creating endless possibilities for drama and laughs. Patricia Clarkson, Kristin Scott Thomas and the top notch cast deliver an unforgettable evening.
How the chattering classes must love this. A bunch of heavyweight thesps filmed in black and white doing their damnedest for a BAFTA. It is so up it's own arse it beggars belief. A plodding storyline delivered with insane intensity. The clumsy attempts at humour. The self- congratulatory nature of it all. The ending that comes from a mile away. The overwhelming smell of ham. To top it all, I saw this in an independent cinema in Totnes. It doesn't come any more Guardian reader than that, does it? I couldn't wait to get out. And neither could my friend or a fair number of the rest of the audience. The rest of them? Oh, I'm sure they'll be at a dinner party right now recommending it to all and sundry along with the latest subtitled epic about a gender-conflicted yak herder from Ulan Bator filmed in Mongolian dialect through a beta max hand held for forty quid while the director was on the run from the Chinese authorities. Like Mongolian yak herders? Then you'll love Spall et al in this, darling.
What did I just Watch??! Just went in to see this movie without knowing what it was and spent my time in complete bemusement as I pculdnt believe what was happening. The events and comments were so random and unbelievable that they were hilarious. It was only an hour long though, and finishes at the good part. Honestly don't know how to explain how bewildered I am
Um dos melhores filmes que me foi dado ver neste ano. Uma comédia-negra em formato widescreen a preto e branco - pois então! -, intensa e mordaz, por vezes hilariante e com desempenhos só ao alcance de grandes actores. Pelo meio ainda dá para a guitarra portuguesa de mestre Carlos Paredes no tema "Verdes Anos", Imperdível.
Brilliantly written and directed....thank you Sally Potter for a truly funny mature film! Finally! As a mature woman, it was absolutely wonderful to experience all the emotional dynamics in the film. No matter any reviews...everyone will feel it worth seeing! If you are a film aficionado...don't miss this one!
Wonderful acting carries the film. Although filled with wit and satire, it does have moments where it becomes overblown, but several fantastic portrayals are able to reign it in and keep its dark, sharp undertones in check. "Tom: No money is clean. It all comes through the system and into your pockets. Your grubby little pockets!"
