Review: 45 Years

Beautifully gloomy!

An interesting look at the dynamics of a married couple as they plan for their 45th wedding anniversary whilst they both unravel with the news that the husband's ex girlfriend's body has been found in the Swiss Alps where she fell to her death. The Subtle way the story is told through day to day moments is clever and the acting very good. The authentic way their relationship was captured was refreshing. I appreciated the quiet pace of this film but it's one that not everyone will be able to connect so easily with. Would of loved to have learned more about Katya and her and Geoff's travels leading up to the accident.Great discussion with my friend after seeing this, many unanswered questions and interpretations which all adds to the experience.
