On a beautiful cloudless day a young couple celebrate their reunion with a picnic. Joe has planned a postcard-perfect afternoon in the English countryside with his partner, Claire. But as Joe and Claire prepare to open a bottle of champagne, their idyll comes to an abrupt end. A hot air balloon drifts into the field, obviously in trouble. The pilot catches his leg in the anchor rope, while the only passenger, a boy, is too scared to jump down. Joe and three other men rush to secure the basket. Just as they secure the balloon, the wind rushes into the field, and at once the rescuers are airborne. Joe manages to drop to the ground, as do most of his companions, but one man is lifted skywards. As Joe, Claire and the other rescuers watch this strangely beautiful sight, they see the man fall to his death. Recalling the day's events at dinner with his friends Robin and Rachel, Joe reveals the impact the accident has had on his battered psyche. Ironically the balloon eventually lands safely,...

Film superior to the book
7 May 2005 | by (Lisboa, Portugal) – See all my reviews

I remember reading Ian McEwan's book. I remember it took me a long time to do it, despite the fact I'm usually a fast reader. And I remember thinking, excellent plot, but I really don't like the author's writing. So I was very, very pleased to see this great story turned into a film, even better when this is a film which is carefully directed, produced and edited. It is not the most extraordinary thing in cinema, nevertheless it is a very good movie, dealing with the topic of madness in one of its most singular forms, the erotic delirium. The problem faced by Daniel Craig's character is a difficult one: is this man insane or am I going crazy? Who is mad and who is not?
