This review is from: Boogie Woogie [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
I went into this film without knowing anything about it so wasn't sure what to expect. It's generally a fairly good film, however, i found it to be fairly flat in some places, as though the film didn't really know where it was going and it was struggling for a storyline. It also seems to jump ahead, as though there are a few scenes missing from the film. The acting is played very well by all actors which helped make the film watchable. It would of recieved 3 stars, however, in 1 scene, a character looses her deformed baby and her new friend mounts it in a glass box and gives it to her as a present (as to which she then cries her eyes out). No explanation is given as to why he does this, and it feels totaly out of place in this film. And far from being a prude, i found it to be rather disturbing. Maybe the reasons are explained in the book, but going by the merits of watching this film, i have no desire to read the book.
