what a miserable old fool

What a complete and utter waste of time watching this miserable , boring old person talking about his miserable misled life , he really was a miserable person when he was young and didn't improve with age , his life story was probably one of the most boring its been my unfortunate fate to hear .There was no sense in the dialogue , do people really interact like that ?If so i'm glad i'm not acquaintances of them as i'd need to find a plastic bag and some cable ties for myself as i nearly did half way through the movie .Such a pretentious load of rubbish , who are making films like this and why are they wasting millions of pounds on this tripe ? And then other pretentious prigs pat them on the back and give them awards for drivel !Don't watch !

Weak first hour, better second half.

I have a few problems with this movie and that's why I just rate it as an average movie. One of my issues is that the movie is way too long. It could easily have been done half on hour shorter. Then the movie would have been better. Now the first 45 minutes are just boring to watch. I thought the movie was going nowhere at one point and yawning was the only thing I did for almost an entire hour. The best part of the movie is the end part. That was worth watching. You can't really blame Jim Broadbent for anything, he did his best trying to make it an enjoyable movie to watch. Too bad the beginning was so boring, because the revealing of the mystery was good. But that's just not enough to make it a good movie.

Brings the Book to life

I was skeptical that a film could capture the essence and the mystery of the book. However I found it very satisfying. I am not sure how I would rate the film if I had not read the book. It is a simple story and indeed one could complain that its focus on white middle aged Londoners but that would be missing the point of the universality of the story. We all create the story of our lives through our memories and by using the plot device of such a traumatic awakening of forgotten memories causes us to consider the things we have remembered selectively. I am still unsure what the significance of the twist at the end adds to the message or the theme, except to add to the tragedy of situation and increase the guilt of the main character. As a film experience, the acting was first class and the pace and use of music well matched. As a final thought I would consider whether we should also draw lessons from Adrian's actions versus his earlier comments about suicide. A film that gives you prompt and room to think. A rarity these days and to be welcomed.
