[Elliot tells Joe about his father's diary entry which describes how he witnessed German stormtroopers in 1930s Germany humiliating the Jews by making the men crawl naked along the road and the women climb trees and tweet like birds]
Elliot Graham: He says "They certainly do things differently here - we all agreed". I love that: "We all agreed - they certainly really do things differently here" - I think that's the most terrible sentence I've ever heard. And these, Joe, these were the people he was doing ...

Sorry to see it end..
19 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

It's always a bit of a surprise to visit here after I've seen a wonderful movie. There are intelligent people that see it through eyes that are as valid as mine, yet they saw nothing as I did.

I think it would be wise not to take too much from any of the reviews that you see here. If you are one of the lucky ones that see the film as I did, you will be rewarded by an experience that's as full as "Howard's End". If not, you'll likely know within the first 15 minutes and you can do something else.

I thought the acting was as good as anything I've seen in the past couple of years. It wasn't just Gambon, it was pretty much across the board. Wynter was unbelievably good. Kelly Reilly was perfect.

If you haven't read the spoilers yet, don't. This movie is subtle. Give it a try.
