’45 Years’

45years-2999700A quiet, serious drama expertly performed by British thesps Charlotte Rampling (The Duchess, The Night Porter) and Tom Courtenay (The Dresser, Doctor Zhivago). You completely believe these two have been married for 45 years, such is the power of their performances.

Both won their respective best actor categories at the 2015 Berlin Film Festival: sadly only Charlotte Rampling received an Oscar nomination.

Director Andrew Haigh (Weekend, Greek Pete) has modelled  a piece of Meissen porcelain – an elegant, nuanced film of small gestures, discrete comments and seemingly slight but important questions answered or left hanging in the air.
