dramatic, but devilishly hard to follow!
There are so many strands that make up the story, and very little to connect them together. But it is well worth watching a second (or more) time just to get the whole picture (!)
Charlotte Rampling is so good, so convincing as the middle-aged woman, now separated and living with a daughter and grandchild. But there is a past incident, very important to what else is happening, briefly referred to a couple of times that isn’t really explained – perhaps a tragedy involving another child?
Every now and then, there is a flashback with Anna now wearing a bright red dress. That’s a signal to us to change our focus and concentrate and try to join the scenes together.
Gabriel Byrne is the cop who becomes attracted (no surprise there!) to Anna. A very good performance.
Slow, Confusing, Ultimately Pointless Film
AT the end I wish Bernie had just let Anna jump or better yet pushed her off the ledge. Caught this on Netflix in 2017. I THINK that the daughter and the grand-kid were BOTH imaginary – hence the baby sleeping sign was always on the door. Why was Anna phoning her own apartment from a phone booth? And what’s with the old-fashioned touch phone in 2015? Where did the itchy cast on her broken arm come from – did she get it from killing the match.com date? London is photographed like NYC (Gotham) in a Batman movie and I half expected to see the Caped Crusader and Catwoman appear. This is a plot? HE’S a newly divorced cop (DCI Bernie Kominski – a Brit police chief with a Borsch Belt name and demeanor) who stumbles around like he’s taken far too many of those Ambien pills he’s seen swallowing. SHE’S a lonely, sixtyish woman who works selling mattresses in a department store and hallucinates she’s living w/her (non-existent?) daughter and dead grand-kid. She does in-person speed-dating and during the process runs into a rough-trade character. During a sex hook-up with the dude she kills him in self-defense and can’t remember the killing happened, much less that she did the deed herself. OY VEY Bernie! She ALSO doesn’t remember that while day-dreaming during a babysitting stint she got forgetful (again) and let her grand-kid run off and get killed by a car. So she goes to the park and pushes an empty swing. Bernie gets to investigate the gory murder and despite his attraction to Anna, comes to suspect her and when he comes in for the arrest, she steps out onto the edge of the high-rise and threatens to jump. He pulls Anna (now the love of his heart) back. End of film….
