Cornerstones
18 April 2011 | by (Maastricht, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This film starts with a short introduction into the life of a family and the reason why it still is how it is. Basically a fairly normal family with two grown up daughters, divorced parents, a father that is living with his new girlfriend and their two children. All of it completely normal.

Even though it doesn't follow a high pace it is entirely captivating. It grips the audience and slowly takes them on a journey through the lives of what is just a family. With everything that happens one can feel more of a bond with the members of the family and feel their joy and pain - and that works very well.

The way the characters are played is amazing. Every single one of them comes across as a completely real person and every single event is believable. The gripping tension is enough to have one leave the cinema slightly dented and bruised - in a good way.
