Great script, direction & acting.
- Some Velvet Morning review by DW
You may never have seen a film quite like this one. It's a two-hander (just him & her) set in a narrow three storey town house of small inter-connecting rooms. This couple, old friends, meet after a break of 4 years. The tense suspense created by a wonderfully convoluted script prevents you from looking away for a single second. And then, an ending that takes your breath away. (No exaggeration, I promise you).
The script writer & director are one & the same person. Such is the complexity of his script that it makes sense that he would not entrust anyone else to direct it. Brilliant.
I'm a great admirer of Stanley Tucci & this performance is, even for him, outstanding. He acts with his voice, his face & his body (often all at the same time) to give us a truly individualistic performance. (Nicola Walker, often seen on BBC, also has those same acting characteristics though I'm not saying I'd have liked her to be the co-star in this film: that would be just too much of a good thing & 5 stars would not be enough!
