4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good, funny, unpredictable film :), 6 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boogie Woogie [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
The movie was nothing like I expected, it was really enjoyable and entertaining! I went to the premiere at the Edinburgh Film Festival last year. I was expecting a really arty, obscure, sex filled, bizarre film, but it was nothing like that! It was very funny and clever and although there is quite a lot of nudity it didn't feel exploitative.

Gillian Anderson has a cute English accent and the character she plays is really different to what I expected. Although she is a snob in the art world, she actually plays a really naive, confused woman! It is all played for laughs, you don't have that much sympathy for the character (although I had some), but it is a really different character from those she has played in the past.

Although, being a fan, I focused primarily on Gillian's performance, kudos must go to Alan Cumming who I thought was really wonderful in the movie. His performance really gave the film an emotional heart.

I have no idea why it has taken so long to get this film distributed, it is highly enjoyable and much better than lots of the junk at the cinema. If you are a Gillian fan, she has some priceless scenes to look forward to, if you are just a movie fan in general it's a great little film, which I'd definitely recommend.
