A very good movie

3 years, 2 months ago at Feb 1 4:31
OOOOOhhhhh.... This movie is really heavy. You should be aware of this before watching it. The perfomances are very good and so is the directing but what an heartbreaking story! I have seen some pretty tough dramas but most of them are nothing compared to the agony displayed in this picture. I have always been a fan of Tim Roth, even though, I have to admit, he hasn't done anything really amazing ... read more

Actor Tim Roth's dictatorial debut is also an exquisitely acted masterwork about the dark secrets surrounding a middle-class British family, with Lara Belmont stealing the show as the abused daughter. Teenager Tom (Freddie Cunliffe) is horrified but initially fails to intervene when he realizes his older sister (Belmont) is carrying on an incestuous relationship with their father (Ray Winstone.)read more

Harrowing Masterpiece

“Actor Tim Roth's dictatorial debut is also an exquisitely acted masterwork about the dark secrets surrounding a middle-class British family, with Lara Belmont stealing the show as the abused daughter. Teenager Tom (Freddie Cunliffe) is horrified but initially fails to intervene when he realizes his older sister (Belmont) is carrying on an incestuous relationship with their father (Ray Winstone.)

Winstone, who is primarily known by the public for imposing-baddie-with-a-cockney-accent kind of roles, really sells it as a monster of a human being. You will hate this man so much you will want to vomit. Tilda Swinton plays Mum, who is pregnant at the start of the film, and later has a baby girl named Alice.

The weird thing is, Tom doesn't immediately see his older sister as a” read more

"Sillä välin, kun mutsi imettää, murrosikävaiheeseen tullut poju kyttäilee perhettään ja uskoo faijallaan olevan suhde siskoon. Brittiaksentilla varustettu, ihokarvat pystyyn nostattava, perhe -draama. Alun jumittaminen palkitaan loppua kohden, eikä ahdistukselta voi välttyä. Ray Winstonelle yläpeukku faijan roolista."

Amazing Underrated Obscure Bizarre Films PART 11 (50 movies items)

"Tim Roth directs this flick that makes a great double bill with the Gary Oldman directed film Nil By Mouth but that is only if you like distressing, raw cinema and/or character actors who direct one feature film and then never do it again. This one might even be the more fucked up of the two. The big reveal towards the end makes ya wanna spew chunks. "

10 reasons why I love Tim Roth (10 movies items)

"His directorial debut is dedicated to his father and it's inspired by his own childhood. "If you are a survivor of abuse and you get the opportunity to tell a story about that subject, then you can really get in there and tell the truth. It was a fantastic chance for me to exorcise a lot of demons. I’m very proud of the film and proud of the fact that it’s even been used as a teaching tool." on the set of the film"

January Movie Journal - Xanadon't (35 movies items)

" Netflix Instant Like me you might find the excessively drab and dreary photography (concerning both landscapes and interior settings) bothersome, but once you get a full grasp of the material at hand it will all make horrific sense. This one's about as emotionally bleak and hopeless as they come. 2 hours after credit-roll and I'm still not at all sure that the below rating won't change, nor can I guess just which direction it might swing.

" The family that loves together stays together. Or, if taken too far, just completely crumbles together. A grey, sodden story of family disorder that's as bleak as the subject matter can be, & provides for some really good acting (particularly Lara Belmont), not to mention an excellent directorial debut by Tim Roth.
