I quattro figli della signora Flynn si riuniscono a Glasgow, nella casa materna, in occasione dei funerali della madre, morta di recente. L'indomani mattina ci sarà la cerimonia funebre e, mentre un violento temporale si abbatte sulla città, i congiunti si preparano a trascorrere una notte molto difficile. I rapporti fra di loro si fanno più violenti man mano che le ore passano : bisogna accettare il lutto e cercare di ritrovare rapporti familiari ed affettivi ormai scomparsi da tempo. Written by
Unfortunately, i didn't watch the movie "Trainspotting", so i missed Mullan's acting in that film. I knew that "Orphans" is the first directorial debut of Mullan.
The entire film has been brilliantly directed.The story of the movie in short: four brother and sister gather at a stormy night for their mother's funeral.As they gather, their love, hate, grief, for each other are expressed individually in that brilliant drama.
The entire cast and music are nice. actually, i like Stevenson's acting as "Sheila". She is brilliant.
Congratulation Mullan to direct such a brilliant drama!
I would like to rate this movie : 8 out of 10.
