Downsides: don't watch this if you want a relaxed, fun evening. More seriously, I found the tone of the ending rather jarred with the rest. But not enough to devalue what is otherwise an awesome, near-perfect movie.
So why the disappointment? The love story central to this film brings to light many themes: identity, race, religion, sexuality, and spirituality and deals with the themes aptly by the power of the writing and its unique style. But then comes the painfully and ridiculously long monologue of She's aunt which rambles on about politics and death.Read more ›
1) I couldn't catch what the actors were saying half the time, the articulation was so unclear - this was a big problem. I could have done with subtitles but none were available on this DVD. It's tiring watching a film when you are straining to catch what is being said. And the script is important in this film - it's a dialogue film not an action film.
2) I found the fact that it is in Shakespearian rhyming blank verse was a distraction. Because it's so rare nowadays, you can't stop noticing it. And in order to fit the metre, the dialogue sometimes has to be a bit archaic or stilted. Even Shakespeare sometimes uses prose or non-rhyming verse.
3) It's just so damn intellectual. Even cooks in a restaurant kitchen are having a debate about god (in poetry of course). Some of the dialogues and monologues drag on a bit (the deathbed speech by the old mother is an example). The two lovers spend most of their time in bed debating and talking (presumably they also make love, but that is only inferred). I failed to get a sense of real passion between them, their relationship was so intellectual, like a debating society.
4) There are big implausibilities in the story. First of all, why do the married couple at the heart of the story not simply get divorced? They have no kids, and divorce is no stigma nowadays. Maybe the answer was in one of the dialogues which I failed to catch.Read more ›
