A missed opportunity
29 January 2011 | by soupster1See all my reviews

A story about guilt, loneliness and cross generational communication is (let's face it)... a recipe for success. An able cast and sufficient production values should have delivered an interesting film... but they didn't.

A great idea was wasted because of poor visualisation, weak plot development and worst of all... thinking that clichéd portrayals of angst and irrational behaviour are in any way funny.

Whoever came up with the idea that this story could be made as a comedy/drama deserves to be condemned to watch every film The Sun recommends ad infinitum.

The denouement is excellent but almost completely unexplained and unexplored. The rest of the film is painfully wrenched from trying to tell too much of a story... while the actual story (untold), would have been enough to create a film with a marvellous story to tell.

I hope this will get re-made one day. The story is too good to be wasted on this half hearted attempt.
