One thought on “Your feedback on Poetry

  1. ‘Excellent’: 12 votes
    => What a fabulous film. Utterly brilliant. Realistic, touching, inspiring tragic.
    =>Great comparison with the Canadian film on Alzheimer’s shown to us 3 years ago. Something of the oriental view compared to that of the Western World?
    => Extraordinary. Photography magnificent.
    => Simply superb.
    => Definitely a strong candidate for “the film of the year”.
    => Very powerful, although depressing.
    => Totally absorbing and superbly acted. It was fascinating how Mija’s developing poetic sensibility transformed and transcended the very mundane, realistic everyday settings.
    => It looked so real, it was hard to believe it [was] acted. It helped not to know the cast.
    => Some gripping images.
    => Brilliant film, raising so many different issues, cleverly linking throughout the film.
    => The best film of the season, on so many levels.
    => Shell shocked when it ended. Her pain + [?] confusion are very poignantly displayed. Too bad it was a small audience – those who chose not to come missed something remarkable. Brilliantly written and played – bitter savagery of life.

    ‘Very Good:
    => Long drawn out. But excellent filming & superb acting.
    => Beautiful but too long
    => Watching and listening to people – refreshing and fascinating.
    => I would have liked to know more about the girl & am glad she appeared at the end.
    => Beautifully filmed and profoundly moving, if overlong.
    => Very long on a Cramphorn seat, but worth it for a totally stunning performance. Such elegance in contrast to the arrogance of every male in the film.

    => Wonderful photography. Thought provoking
    => Bit long – interesting alien concept.
    => Great insight into human nature.

    => Very long – too long.

    => Beautiful scenery, but plot at times incomprehensible. Too long, but at times some redeeming moments.
