90's black and white done with a 50's style and skill
To start with artistically it rates a 9 out of 10. In my mind there is no such thing as perfection but if you cover enough bases then you get fairly close.
The cinematography got me right where it counts, as I love black and white when done well. The angles and use of light where exceptional and reminiscent of gems made in the 50's and 60's like The Apartment, 12 Angry Men, etc, etc the list is endless.
The actors are all of a high quality and at a level as to not reduce it down to "all about them", so this gets a thumbs up there.
The audio is again a fine piece of work with the droning of the ship in the beginning and the ocean for the beach scenes just to name a couple.
There is so much more that could be said about this film ie. the actor's etc but I would not like to spoil it for any one ready to take the plunge.
This movie made such an impact I had to buy it on DVD. It took ages to find and now it is safe in my collection, tucked deep in my cupboard away from my kid's hands.
