After The Storm
Reviewed By Chris Coombes
I find it interesting that I can leave the cinema after a film like this feeling fairly sure I didn't enjoy it, but later after some conversation and some thought I realise it has a lot to offer, and that’s what I love about cinema. This was a film that dealt honestly and respectfully with the notion of loss and disappointment. It was entirely unsentimental about the way people need each other but often fail to take care of each other. It was a comment on modern life and the confronting issues of old age and loneliness and loss of traditional family connections. Most of all this film showed us how, in spite of yearnings for things to be different, essentially we never change; we go on making the same mistakes. So, in the end I felt that this slow, gentle film was quite profound – and very clear about human frailty in all its forms. A bit of a masterpiece in fact.
