Uncomfortable but rewarding reviewing
28 August 2007 | by scotty g-1See all my reviews

Managed to see this film at the Edinburgh film festival. Roller-coaster ride of emotions, uplifting in parts, haunting in others, it is not a film to view lightly. Great performances by the lead actors, utterly convincing which adds to the weight and subject matter.

Went along without knowing anything about the plot and I won't give Adapated from a stage play, the dialogue is excellent and draws you into the lives of characters each missing something from their lives.

Few films have made me think as much about the ending and the sequences that unfold as Blackbird has even though it was over 9 days since I saw it.
