Art S (gb) wrote: Somehow Claire Denis has managed to create a warm moody film, one that ruminates about the positive aspects of our closest relationships (in this case between single dad and daughter), even as it signals the changes that must occur without ever making them too sad. In this way, Denis has taken her cues from Ozu, particularly Late Spring (1949) which also sees a father contemplating his daughter's future life without him. Alex Descas plays the dad as a man of few words but deep feeling. His life is complicated by romantic pursuit from a neighbour, a chain-smoking taxi driver, who has long been treated as part of the family. Another neighbour provides a romantic interest for Josephine, the daughter (played by Mati Diop). The relationships between these four principals and a few others make up the heart of the film and Denis allows the richness and complexity of real life to infuse the film. At the same time, her eye for composition (including Ozu-like still lifes), her ear for the way that the soundtrack can evoke moods (courtesy of the Tindersticks), and her thoughtful script that leaves ambiguities everywhere, such that we don't really know anything about the backstory of the characters except what we can infer, elevate the film beyond an ordinary drama. In the end, Alex drinks the 35 shots of rum to mark a special occasion, though we are left to guess at what has happened (but the second rice cooker gives it away). Rich and satisfying without ever threatening to be a major statement.

Catherine N (au) wrote: Bleak, bleak, bleak! This somewhat contrived film, interweaves the lives of several characters who struggle through life and death events. Their experiences fores them to confront their lives as either seeing themselves doomed to eke out an ill-fate existence or perhaps capable of transcending adversity through will and a positive outlook. It's worth the trip just to hear Alan Arkin deliver his depressing anecdote.

Tony P (kr) wrote: Moving drama based on the WWII experiences of Eric Lomax a Prisoner of War forced to work on a railway in Burma following the fall of Singapore to the Japanese.Lomax is played in two timelines by Jeremy Irvine in the war and Colin Firth in his older years.He and his colleagues endure severe torture at the hands of their Japanese soldier captors forcing severe post traumatic stress disorder long after the war has ended.Lomax is a railway geek hence the title of the film.His demons come back to haunt him once he finds love with Patti (a rather boring Nicole Kidman) and the identity of one of his torturers is revealed as still being alive by wartime friend Finlay (Swedish Stellan Skarsgard).After travelling back to the site of his capture he finds forgiveness to the Japanese 'translator' soldier.The story is very interesting and emotional but the trouble with Colin Firth films I find is he plays pretty much the same character in all of them. A broody stiff upper lip Englishman.The film has a documentary feel like an episode of Michael Portillos Railway Journeys but on the whole provides a worthy film to watch.
