Ugly clichéd look at family life.
25 June 2013 | by (Shanghai) – See all my reviews

It's rare when I watch a film and almost every choice made by the writer and director and cinematographer annoys me.

I thought this was extremely clichéd in its characters, plot, style. I thought it had a rather ugly look with a very flat look and harsh lighting. Then they kept going through movie-of-the-week tropes, such as having characters move as blurry figures in the background, or filming someone through a window holding their head in their hands. The music cues were far too intrusive and loud, except when it is quiet and clichéd, especially the annoying light piano tinkling to denote a serious moment of death.

Otherwise, dialogue sounds straight from the writer and overly scripted. I also think it is a mistake for a young writer-director to have several characters be actors actors, so that you have actors portraying actors. And the addition of hip popular topics such as lesbianism and tattoos felt rather artificial and unnecessary.

If you could punch a film ... well, I had a clenched fist for most of the duration. Really the first hour felt like 2 hours. I thought it was a lengthy film even though it actually is under 90 minutes. maybe just much more of a chick and family film than I care for. The Father and husbands/boyfriends were very marginal characters. I don't care about that, but the focus on the mother and three daughters just unspooled in ways which made me cringe.
