! liked it - Sometimes Always Never review by OP

I don't know why the other reviewers have taken against this film. I really liked it. Its gentle and captivating, and could have been written for Bill Nighy. I found it sad and funny and well acted.  A little off-beat, but that's what really makes it.

Awful - Sometimes Always Never review by PM

Probably one of the worst films I've ever seen. If you're thinking of renting this don't bother. It's a slow storyline and from the backdrop it's obviously been done on the cheap, quite laughable in places

clever script not matched by the production or performances - Sometimes Always Never review by PD

Spoiler Alert

Mmm - one of those that attempts to deal with some serious themes (loss, grief, desire for familial connection etc) by being self-consciously 'charming', but for me I'm afraid both the acting and the production didn't match Frank Cottrell Boyce's clever, wry and witty script. The styling of the film seems to stand separately from the dialogue, which is realistic by comparison, and this, which includes an abundance of Wes Anderson-style symmetrical framing and frequent use of tongue-in-cheek title cards, only serves to distract the audience from what's going on rather than reinforce any emotive power the film might have, whilst the deliberately low-key performances just seem to lack depth and nuance to me. Add to all this a truly horrible sentimental ending, I'm coming away thinking this one, though admittedly watchable, could have been so much better, sadly.

Never (again) - Sometimes Always Never review by DC

Spoiler Alert
28/06/2020

It's pretty rare when I can't manage to watch a film all or most of the way through but this was one such occasion. Initial critic reviews seemed promising but when I saw a viewer review mentioning Wes Anderson it flagged up a warning sign for me as I am not a fan of any single one of his films as I find them just irritating as hell. Anyway so was this effort - well the 30 minutes I could stand of it. Everything was so mannered and false and unbelievable for no justifiable reason I could see. There are so many great, low budget British films and absolutely anything by Ken Loach is light years better. Poor....very poor.
