Another excellent film picked from the Film4 schedules by the Guardian as a 'hidden gem'. No sex, no violence, just human frailty portrayed with empathy and affection. Not an uplifting film: there is a narrative arc, but it's all hard going. Old age is not fun.
We previously enjoyed 'A Separation' by the same director. This is similarly absorbing, with layers of truth, and fully rounded characters whose motives and feelings are far from clear. Excellent.
Well worth watching. Tommy Lee Jones in a leading role, and directing. Hilary Swank gives a great performance. The story is harsh and takes some unexpected turns. Not a feelgood movie.
Well this was OK. The guy was nuts, and took quite unacceptable risks. And survived. The movie is a little over dramatised, but effective.
We loved this piece of French cinéma vérité. Laure moves to a new neighbourhood and convinces her sub-teenage chums that she is Mikael. Things get ever more complicated until the inevitable dénouement. Very convincing evocation of time and place.
