Una - Abusereminiscence by Benedict Andrews, GBR 2016

GALAPosted by Martin 2017-02-05 12:22:44

Andrews is originally a theatre director, and as such, it makes sense that his debut film is based on a play. He doesn't just film a stage play, which is an easy trap to fall into in these occasions. He adds cinematic elements such as fast cuts, flashbacks and music to the mix, and it serves the story well. The scene in the park is very haunting, and the main actors bring life to the two scarred human beings they portray. The film doesn't give you a clear cut answer, perhaps even rises more questions instead. Then again, the subject at hand is supposed to make you think.
