We replay this opening three times, each concentrating on the actions and thoughts of the three men. And this continual reprise of scenes from different angles probably accounts for the film not being a great success at the cinema but being hailed as a minor masterpiece after transfer to DVD. This is because you initially need to see it twice to appreciate the story and the film’s qualities, and indeed the more times I have watched the film on DVD, the more I have come to appreciate it. It is a shame that it appears on DVD in 4:3 perspective. The film comes with an excellent soundtrack, well edited into the narrative, especially in the transitions between the three stories.
The accompanying commentary features both directors as well as the three leading ladies (Ellie Haddington, Josephine Butler, and Susie Smith) who worked opposite the three male leads. (In the commentary, by-the-way, co-director Neil Hunter is often rude.) We learn that the part played by Tom Hollander was actually lined up for James Dreyfus. We are also told that the three stories were filmed in three different film styles, but I cannot claim to have noticed this.Read more ›
As anyone who watches the "extras" contained in the DVD package will discover, the guts of the film draw on the talents and commitment of a fine ensemble of British actors. There is no sense of the directors ramming a story / life view down your throat and the way in which it reflects real life, with a never ending stream of interlocking events and perspectives is seamless.
Some fine acting -- people won't be surprised to know that Bill Nighy is magnificent, and that Douglas Henshall and Josephine Butler have an effortless natural charisma that fills the screen.
It's a film that will reward watching repeatedly to fully capture the matrix of emotions and events, so brilliantly captured in the film score. A film for all seasons and stages of life.
Very cleverly mastered with a poignant and powerful look into the lives of three people who were touched by the death of another. As one critiqe put it 'No weddings and a Funeral'. In the same genre as Perfect Strangers and Shooting the Past.
If you like quirky British filmmaking, you will love this.

This has to be without a doubt the most boring movie ever. Digging your eye-balls out with a blunt garden instrument is preferable to watching this movie.Published on 9 Nov. 2006 by Kari
