must see film
Art is best when it captures a human emotion and puts it on display for a viewer to see what they have felt inside represented by a performer. For it is through the performer that the viewer may see themselves in a way they have never seen before, as the actor exhibits raw human feeling; that palpable yet indescribable feeling that sets humans apart from other life forms.
Between Us exposes the unvarnished dualism of love and contempt; the comfort, warmth and acceptance of a committed love relationship and the inimical pain of rejection, contempt and disdain of a disaffected partner. The underlying plot of the film is subservient to the performances delivered by an extraordinary cast; indeed, the plot is merely a platform for the cast to display attacks on another and the deep wounds manifested by the assault.
Skillfully directed by Dan Mirvish this is a must see film. Each performer is provided the latitude to dig deep inside and deliver an honest, albeit, uncomfortable exhibition of aggression and pain experienced by the target of the attack; at points attractive and ugly; and compassionate and selfish.
Some may view this film as a story about role reversals sprinkled with bits of humor. But for those who have experienced betrayal, disrespect by a loved one, contempt and disdain, this film is so much more than an interested dark comedy; it is an opportunity to see yourself.
4/10 about covers it.
The movie is based on a play, that is to say it’s basically a lay in film form. Like so many plays, and play based movies, it revolves around couples and relationships and I’m getting somewhat tired of the recurring theme. It seems most of these moves are pretty much the same, sure they have different situations and settings, but the basic dialogs are the same, and that’s exactly the case here. The movie/play juxtaposes 2 couples at different time in their life and deals with issues such as the frustration of long term relationships, finance, life choices, urban living vs. the country…..ordinary stuff which you’ve no doubt come across before and that isn’t taken to new heights here. Some of the scenes are laughably over the top and that just really pulls you out of the moment and makes you doubt the credibility of the story and the characters. Apart from that the acting and directing was great, David Harbour was especially good although Melissa George was bland through most of it, bad casting perhaps. In short, watch this if you like quasi intellectual relationship plays.
