Two hours of watching treacle move up a hill,
This review is from: In the Fog (Blu-ray)
I like war films and have seen some good ones to rent, this arrived and went back the same day. Two hours of nothing much happening so don't think you are in for a WW2 Ninth Company or some such. This is an art film with very plodding pace in need of a good edit down. OK this depicts some unsavoury saddening times where national pride and courage were sometimes just not enough in order to get by. But you have to make it entertaining too and this fails on most levels. I could not engage with the protagonists and despite some pretty scenery from time to time there was not much to look at except some troubled peasants taking their time... oh my do they take their time over things... I found myself shouting at the screen to encourage them to get on with it and settle things... but they ignored me over and over....
