“Quartet , Heneke’s Amour , Les Invisibles, Epilogue, Memories Look at Me, Happy New Year Grandma, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, A Song for Marion. And I do not mention the remake – why?- of Great Expectations or Frank and Robot. “
I managed to see 3 of the films I mentioned in my previous post about the London Film Festival. Extremely interesting films all three deserve serious consideration. I reported my first impression of Quartet (2012) as the delight of this film overcame me. I will mention briefly my impression of the others until I can view them again.
Happy New Year Grandma (2011) : an awkward mixture of comedy and horror. A film for Alexandra who is an “Honours student completing a thesis on female ageing in both U.S. & British cinema across the blanket genres of horror, comedy and drama.” She blogs on http://excavationsingenre.blogspot.com.au .
Epilogue (2012) is exquisitely realistic in its depiction of an old couple, their personal relationship and their relationship with the state of Israel.
I recommend these films and would welcome my readers’ opinions.
