A Very Long Engagement

I know I only cover music, but I went to see A Very Long Engagement at the Queen’s Film Theatre. A beautiful theatre and a fantastic film. A young couple are engaged, but separated by the First World War. He never comes back, but she (Audrey Tautou) refuses to believe he’s dead. The film follows her quest to discover the real story of what happened to her lover. Shot with all the style of French cinema, the set pieces are beautiful, the story engaging and the acting flawless. Like Amelie, there are so many delightful details, but it carries a much more serious subject matter. Go see it.
