Excellent character study
21 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Bereft is a pretty good, if undemanding, movie. Short on plot this is essentially a character study. A woman trying to cope with the after effects of emotional upheaval. A random event which forever changes her life. The film has many qualities; the landscape, the photography, the music, the interesting range of support characters but what really makes Bereft worth watching is the performance of the lead; Molly, who is quite beautifully played by Vinessa Shaw.

Molly doesn't have a tremendous amount of dialogue, a lot of her mood is conveyed through other means, eccentric behaviour, photographing everything - to the annoyance of those around her. But she is a character who will remain with you long after the film has finished. Obviously this isn't a main stream movie, the pacing and the absence of strong story line are not going to be to everyone's taste. However I thought it was fascinating and well worth watching.

An intelligent film, that perhaps doesn't totally deliver everything you want it to but still has a lot going for it.
