4.0 out of 5 stars Loss and loneliness, 3 Mar. 2012
This review is from: A Single Man [DVD] (DVD)
A Single Man is the story of a gay academic coming to terms with the death of his lover, and trying to find meaning in a world without love. The film is elegant and stylish, and the clothes, the sets, the people, actually everything in the film, is aesthetically pleasing. It is beautifully presented, with nice camera work and music, and of course wonderful production values and costumes.

That is entirely predictably for film directed by fashion designer Tom Ford. (We all wish the real world looked as good as this, right?) What is unexpected is the substance of the movie. Treated differently, it could easily be glib and superficial, but surprisingly, it isn't. Colin Firth is outstanding in an impressive performance of loss and loneliness. In a decade when most Hollywood movies have the emotional depth of a children`s cartoon, why does it takes a first time director to make a movie with some meaning?
