45 Years – **

Posted: February 5, 2017 in 2015, Drama, UK, XX

Charlotte Rampling deserved her Oscar nomination last year for her role in this lowbudget tale about a couple who are having a relationship crisis in the week leading up to their 45th wedding anniversary. She’s in almost every single scene and as a viewer you learn more from her onscreen behavior and expressions than from the scripted dialogue. It’s thanks to her acting skills that you want to finish this pretty unspectacular and predictable late age story, filled with lines that only people on stage would utter after they’ve taken lots of valium. It’s a British movie, but still. Are we supposed to believe that these characters talk to each other like this after 45 years of marriage? Luckily, there are only few lines. And the focus is more on observation.

Life’s a bitch when you find out that the man you’ve been married to for 45 years has more interest in the girl he lost just before he tied the nod than for the celebration coming up in a few days.

Ok movie. Just pretty pointless really.
