Talk about slow. So, so slow. Not that, that made it a boring movie but towards the end of it I felt like it would never be over and that I'd not been watching it for just under 2 hours but that I'd been watching it for weeks. That and none of the characters stood out for me except Ewen McGregor's performance but mainly because as the movie went on I came to despise his character more and more. Ot... read more

A good movie

“Honestly, I thought it was a rather difficult movie to judge. Indeed, even though Ewan McGregor has gathered a respectable status as a movie star, from time to time, he still picks up some pretty challenging features and this movie was definitely one of those. Indeed, the whole thing was pretty bleak and depressing, with some rather explicit sex scenes (you even have some full frontal nudity by Mr McGregor himself if I’m not mistaken) so it was far from being a feel-good flick, that’s for sure. Still, there was something quite fascinating about the main character and Ewan McGregor delivered once again, one hell of a performance. To round up the cast, you had Tilda Swinton and Peter Mullan, two of the most underrated actors at work nowadays, and they were also really good in this. To be” read more

This contributes greatly to atmospheric music by David Byrne and recurring musical motif that haunts the viewer. The dark picture, dark blue and gray colors make for a dull universe in which their characters free of guilt and inhibitions. The silences, simple dialogues, raw sexuality, violent outbursts and ambiguous moral leader permeate the screen, such as moisture penetrates the bones of heroes.

"I'm not sure but in the 50's everybody had sex with everybody. "Young Adam" in the title might refer to the Bible's Adam because there's no Adam in this film. "
