Great ideas, bad music.
22 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was in the first audience to see this film at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. As the film is still listed as being in post production I assume that it may not have been the final version that we saw.

There are some great ideas behind it, and there are things that have been done very well in this movie.

The editing did seem a bit clumsy at the start of the film, and I thought the pacing was maybe a bit slow, but these aren't huge complaints, mostly it was good once it got going. I think the main thing which did this film a disservice was the music. Totally the wrong music for the film in my opinion. Hopefully this is just because we saw an early version though and this will be sorted out before the film is distributed more widely!

I hate to criticise as they have made a film, which is more than I've done! So, well done! It's certainly original and worth a watch. I look forward to a more polished version appearing with improved music!
