5.0 out of 5 stars raw and touching, 10 April 2012
This review is from: Closer [DVD] [2004] [2005] (DVD)
A rom-com it is not and so much the better for that . Raw emotions, jealousy and lust.
All four actors were superb there were surprising personal resonances for me as I would think would be the case for most viewers who have been in love / fallen out of love
The persistent need to know all the details of the unfaithfulness, digging and digging to get answers - whilst not really wanting to know -gives the raw emotions depth and reality. The being the object of affection and then only really wanting that person when they no longer want you tugs at the heart strings.
Julia Roberts stepped away from the Pretty Woman lightness and gave an great controlled emotional performance . I couldnt help but smile at the nod to Pretty Woman by giving Natalie Portman's stripper character the pink bobbed wig Julie made her own in PW. Jude Law- never really seen him act with any depth but enjoyed him in this, Clive Owen, however is the one for me !! he should have received the award !
Yes there is swearing and bad language - but that is life now and the emotions so near to the surface made the language understandable. A fabulous film and one which has become a firm favourite - and you shouldnt forget the 'theme' music Damien Rice's Blower's Daughter I have just bought the CD 'O' that it is on as the haunting theme gets into your soul.
