Featuring impressive performances from the award-winning cast and whip-smart dialogue, I, ANNA is a stunning neo-noir from one of Britain's greatest up-and-coming talents.

Then she literally bumps into Detective Chief Inspector Bernie Reid, who is investigating a `brutal murder', why are they always `brutal'? Sorry I just can't think of a nice murder, but I digress, this is played by veteran Gabriel Byrne, who as usual brings the full authority of his prowess to the role. He sees something in her straight away and decides to meet again. As the story of Anna is told in flashback we get glimpses of what really happened, but this is one of those that will have you guessing right up till the end - as indeed anything [pertaining to be a `noir' of any description ought to do.
This is well acted, well directed and has great cinematography, the music sounds like classic Richard Hawley but it's not him. And even though this all looks and feels like London, some of it was filmed in Hamburg. One more for trivia fans the director and co-writer is Barnaby Southcombe who is the real life son of Charlotte Rampling, so no wonder she agreed to the gig. This is a very good film and will appeal to all fans of noir or even a bit of murder mystery type shenanigans and I think we can expect more from Mr Southcombe in the future
We are pitched into the world of Allegra (Charlotte Rampling, in real life Southcombe's mother), a sixty-something divorcee trying her hand at speed dating. It's Charlotte Rampling, of course, so this is no dowdy, blue-rinsed old bat: the mojo's still working, though it does look a while since she's taken it out for a spin. In the ladies' she meets Joan (Honor Blackman, once upon a time Pussy Galore so hardly a slouch, and looking tremendous value for 87 years) who gees Allegra up, and rescues her from a moment of doubt.
Before long it's all coming together: Allegra is repairing to a swanky apartment in the Barbican with likely beau George Stone (Ralph Brown).
Yet something doesn't feel quite right. Allegra is in fact Anna, and she wears her face like a mask. Her smile is so permanently fixed it has developed a crust, but her liquid eyes tell a different story.
In the morning the downstairs neighbour, alerted by dripping water, finds George bludgeoned and dead.
All was not what it seemed with George either: a number of leads present immediately themselves to Inspector Flying Fox of the Yard, who arrives in the shape of DCI Bernie Reid (Gabriel Byrne). Southcombe never lets us feel any sympathy for George: however it happened, and whomever the agent, in the grander plan he got what was coming to him.
Like Anna, Bernie Reid is also at crotchets and quavers in his life: as he stalks around George's apartment barking orders to his men he deals by mobile with the flotsam of his disintegrating marriage. By chance Bernie, encounters Anna as he leaves the building.Read more ›
Filled with some of my favorite actors and a fine plot.
A darkest noir and compelling and interesting story.
Some very good acting.
Excellent direction and possible the
worst sound recording possible. Moreover this offering came
sans sub-titles making it possible for my hearing impaired self
to miss **almost every line spoken**.
Surely there are hearing impaired persons in the UK,
Sub Tees should be as normal as generally bad British film industry sound recording
mandates. Bad on ya as an aussie friend would say.
Woman trying to find her new life. Middle aged, she attends a speed dating event, which surprises me no end. What happens at this event is the impetus for the entire film.
Gabriel Byrne plays a police inspector/detective,investigating a gruesome murder, which is difficult to follow because he does not act like any detective I have ever seen.
Eddie Marsan, a man you see in most UK films and series, plays Byrne's underling, and he is more like a detective. Byrne's character runs into Anna and becomes attracted until something dies not ring true.
This film works backwards and it is a long, slow slog. Until the final twist, we are not sure what the film is about, and by that time it is too late. The acting is superb, the only saving grace.
