I ordered this from the UK (it's unavailable at Amazon U.S.), because of Natalie Dormer's role as Suzanne. She certainly didn't disappoint; what an incredible range of facial expressions, and the kind of soft liveliness that the role demands.
Slow moving, relaxing, easy story to understand. Half of the story, is in the eyes of Suzanne and Fox's character Joseph. You can easily imagine the two having a long-term friendship, 2 buddies complaining about their lives from their distant generations, somehow easily sympathizing with their individual plights.
But although Joseph's obsession is understandable, on a temporary basis, there is so much in his life to appreciate, to enjoy, to relish in. Another man, disposed to smelling the roses, could have been daily ecstatic about being alive, in such circumstances.
Except for the Dormer factor, I can't say it's the kind of movie I would rush to see, or happily await a chance to see it a second time. But on a leisurely Saturday, or an evening after a tough day's work, you can't go wrong.
