To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a decent cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the damned thing. Sure, there was nothing really original about the story and the outcome was quite predictable. Still, I think that dementia is a really fascinating subject and, as far as I’m concerned, it must be one of the most terrifying things in the world. Eventually, I can’t imagine anything more dreadful than to be aware that your mind is slowly drifting away and eventually even disappearing. On the other hand, as displayed in this movie, it might be even more terrifying for the people that love you, especially your romantic partner. In this movie, they tackled also the topic of euthanasia and you get both sides of this debate. Indeed, should you stay forever together whatever happens or should you be able to quit this life on your own terms? So, these concepts and ideas were nothing really new but they were fairly well developed here. However, the greatest pleasure with this movie was to see such fine actors like Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci at the top of their games. Sure, you might argue that none of them is actually gay but I thought that they were both really convincing and they had such great chemistry together. Indeed, I really believed that these two men had spent all these years together and it was just heartbreaking that they were not allowed to spend another 20 more years together. Anyway, to conclude, even if it was nothing really groundbreaking, it was still a solid drama with some top performances and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
