A slow slow predictable love story
18 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My women friends loved this, while my male friends and I squirmed through what seemed a painfully long drawn out predictable story. In drama of all sorts, when someone is so happy at the start you can just see the bad news coming. Life and the Film Business should have taught us all by now that the writer/actor/director/ roles combined in one human being is usually not a wise move. Sadly, this film proves it. I am sure Melanie Laurent will go on to do more good films (If you direct don't act - If you act please don't direct) but "The Adopted" could do with some much firmer discipline in cutting and moving the story along. I loved some of the acting sequences woman-to-woman in the book shop (that marvellous book shop owner!) and probably my favorite scene is the young boy talking to his dead aunt in his treasured Polaroid picture that scene really is film - underline film!
