On the whole I enjoyed this movie. The performances from Rampling and Courtney were excellent. Is Rampling deserving of an Oscar for this, I guess we'll have to wait and see. I enjoyed the plot and development of the story on the whole; however I would have liked more from the post party, possibly developing this aspect of the narrative and showing how the aftermath, if at all, was dealt with by the two people in this relationship. I felt they could have developed Courtney's character's psychological grieving more, although I appreciate the implicit and teasing nature of the story line. On the whole if you are looking for a movie that demonstrates and questions implicit cultural values and relationships from a British perspective, focusing on non-communication and how this can fester, this is a movie for you. If you are looking for a barrel of laughs, then I'd stay clear.
