Custody

Brilliantly executed (the film, not the characters!).

(Edit) 09/08/2019

Don't hesitate, if you like a tale of realistic characters being pushed to the edge. The director spins out his tale cunningly, and with a delicacy and restraint that would have escaped lesser (American?) talents. Most exciting film I've seen since the superb ''71'.

Liverpool

One to ponder

(Edit) 22/05/2013

Possibly not the most thrilling film ever, but certainly intriguing. Clearly the director - name escapes me - is no fan of conventional narrative. We are presented with the bare bones of one man's return visit home, and then encouraged to fill in the gaps whatever way suits us. Surprisingly, it lingers on in the mind, no doubt as a result of the brain's determination to make sense of it all.

After the Wedding

Disappointment

(Edit) 02/05/2013

An overly-contrived and ponderous weepie, I'm afraid! I'm not sure what is more preposterous: the bride's speech at her wedding or the whole idea of Mads Mikkelsen's morose character as a heart-of-gold charity worker.
