Storyline

Frank (Ray Winstone) is confined to a residential home, stricken with Alzheimer's - past, present ad future steadily disintegrating. Then one day, James (Jim Sturgess) appears, wanting to re-connect with a father who know longer knows him. James springs Frank from the home and the pair go on the run. As their haphazard journey unfolds - funny, violent and tragic by turns - the present merges with imperfect memories of the past and fact with fiction and we begin to realize that nothing is quite what it seems. ASHES itself defies neat categorization; part road movie, part psychological thriller; part contemporary film noir, but all beautifully shot and with a grimly satisfying twist. Written by Greg (from the DVD jacket)

Superb acting, film noir, but so British and realistic!
18 April 2014 | by (Ampthill, England) – See all my reviews

Main reason for review is the change of genre for Ray Winstone who usually plays the cockney bad guy with relish to find him playing an Alzheimer's sufferer taken from the typical home on a road trip is surprising but he plays the role superbly, I knew he was good at what he normally played but this role showed his ability far more than previous roles I am happy to praise his performance as someone who years ago cared for these patients he is so realistic in the role I was shocked. It's not a happy film and I would rewrite the ending but stress Ray Winstone's performance is really worth watching, hope he does more work outside of his usual genre.
