Margrete – Queen of the North Movie Review

With unease just under the surface and enemies all around, Margrete will have to face one of her toughest challenges. A task that will redefine her sense of self and show the ultimate strength and love for her country she possesses. A strength that comes at the cost of her feelings of motherhood.   //   When watching a foreign film and recognising few if any of the actors, the ability to get lost in the story is enhanced. There isn’t the distraction of career-establi...

Bones and All Movie Review

The work has some visceral thrills that are only enhanced by the element of the unknown. The first of those moments took me by complete surprise and that feeling was more than intriguing. Having no idea of where it was going from that point on was liberating.   //   That the filmakers were able to weave an almost touching love story into the mix following that shocking moment is a testament to the craft on display here. Those shocks are used so sparingly, their impact is ...

Strange World Movie Review

Using a somewhat typical mighty mouse storyline about the virtue of the family unit to make some pointed comments on the ill effects of the world’s reliance on petrol and disregard for the health of the planet is slightly unusual. This divergence is a welcome addition to the usual kiddie fare.   //   This does cause things to go slightly awry in its accessibility to the very young. The high concept might leave the little ones feeling a bit left out. In many ways it is ...

The restaurant in the film, Hawthorne is based loosely on an actual restaurant called KOKS that was featured in the Danish documentary Nordic by Nature - Michelin Stars. It shares that establishment’s isolated island location but flips the script and introduces a real sense of peril to its diners.   //   The film’s structure as it resolves works on so many levels. As social commentary, it is wickedly assertive and the comments on the anonymity that many expect from ...
