Outstanding story, great performances, a rare gem.
This was an astonishing little film. What a performance from Elijah Wood. I did not know he had it in him. What can one say. Pitch perfect work. The Dylan Thomas character was great, and probably quite accurately portrayed, as a tormented soul. Great characters throughout, and excellent directing. The cinematography was breath takingly beautiful. If you are the literary sort, or enjoy poetry, this is quite a film. The locations were lovely, the sets were totally believable, the props were amazing, and the entire production was outstanding.
If you are looking for a lot of action, take a pass. This film is all about drama.
A film of rare quality
Superb reviews here of a magnificent film.
Too often the music kills the moment.
When no-one is speaking, and also when someone is speaking, the scene would be more intense without musical sounds that intrude.
Many years ago, in the 1940s I believe, H.L.Mencken wrote strongly of his irritation when musical sounds were introduced into films for dramatic effect.
This is a film largely about the spoken word and human frailties, in brilliantly simple black-ands-white settings that are intimate whether in a field, a forest or a cabin.
Of course it’s merely personal opinion, but to me the music here merely clutters a classic.
