5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting & devastating, 22 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Royal Affair [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
This is a film that stays with you - harrowingly beautiful to watch.
I really felt it showed the grim reality of how it was to live at the time - perilous whether you were poor (highly likely to die young from some unpleasant disease) or rich (always guarding you back with slightly less of a chance of dying young from some unpleaseant disease).
The acting was was fantastic - I was completely caught up with the characters' feelings of hope, disappointment, elatation, terror and frustration. One of the scenes toward the end of the film, where one of the characters has a realises the truth of what is about to unfold but manages to carry on as 'normal', has been stuck in my head ever since I saw it, it was completely devastating. Everything conveyed, for me at least, how it would have been to live at the time, without feeling the slightest nod to dress it up for the standard cinema audience of today.
An amazing, harrowing, enlightening film.
