Director: Harry Macqueen
Actors: Colin Firth, Stanley Tucci, Pippa Haywood, Nina Marlin, Ian Drysdale, Sarah Woodward, James Dreyfus and Julie Hannan
Year: 2020
Genre: Drama and Romance
Conclusion: 3/5
I thought it got off to a good start but then started to lose its momentum. There were some very good one liners at the start of the film. I did think that this would then carry on right the way through the film. I wasn’t engaged with it as much as I thought I would be. The one thing I loved the most was the beautiful cinematography, which was mainly shot in the Lake District in Cumbria, UK. Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci were both brilliant. This did remind me of the Michael Haneke’s Amour (2012) film. This isn’t a film just about someone having dementia but a film about love and loss.
