4.0 out of 5 stars Out To Lunch 20 May 2013
This review is from: The Song of Lunch (DVD)
'Song of Lunch' is a short BBC film brought to us by Masterpiece Theatre. It is a film of love lost.

Alan Richman plays 'He', no names mentioned. He is an editor and sometimes poet. He has arranged for a meeting with an old flame, and it turns out, 'She', played by Emma Thompson, left him for someone else. He does most of the narration, telling his tale, a sodden tale it seems. He plans the lunch at an old restaruant they used to inhabit, and he relives the days of yore down to the tablecloths and the owner. It turns out eveything has changed, as it is wont to do after 15 years. Strike this as a real negative for him. He starts drinking as soon as he sits down. It appears that liquid meals are his style. She comes in the door, much better looking and dressed than he remembers. In his mind he starts reliving the memories of her. She has to bring him back to the present several times.

"He" however, is stuck in his own mind. As the drinking resumes she makes the statement that he is "out to lunch at your own lunch". That pretty well sums it up. He is very frustrating, you want to kick him or slap his face. We have all met people like this, and it is often that the alcohol brings out their worst side. He is not a likeable person, and he keeps talking. I wanted to say to him, "shut up and let her talk." She has a lot to say and most of it is 'right on'. She remembers correctly and after this lunch she must be thankful that she did not end up with him.

We have a portrait of this couple, the lives they had together and the lives they lead now. She knows him well and tells him that his poetry is not his therapy. It is quite apparent that he needs the latter.

If you know the author and you appreciate the actors you will love this film. It leaves a strong impression on you for months to come. I recommend this film to all those you love good writing, poetry and most of all good British talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 13 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember waiting anxiously to see this on TV and was not disappointed. Both Alan Rickman & Emma Thompson are superb in this. It's heart breaking to watch, so many hopes and dreams, all hanging on a single lunch date with a former love. Genuinely touching, beautiful story. Wonderful.
