I feel moved to do a review on this film, which I had very much been looking forward to seeing, I would certainly not have bothered had I known what sort of film it was.
I had thought that it would be something like Seraphine, a film which I very much enjoyed, I had no idea that I was going to be treated to the dubious pleasure of watching Timothy Spall acting like a demented sex crazed hippopotomus and as the film clearly said it was suitable for young people I really did not expect to be watching his interpretation of Joseph Turner ravishing his poor old Mrs Doyle look alike housekeeper.
The cinematography of the film is excellent, so I do feel sorry for the camera crew, because they did a good job on this film, but for me the disgusting and completly unnecessary sex scenes ruined it for me. I did not at all mind Timothy Spall grunting all the way through the film, if that would have been all he did, unfortunatly reading other peoples reviews made me take the word grunting literally, and now I see that was a euphenism.
Its a pity the film censors have marked this film up as suitable for children over 12, I can only guess that perhaps the people who awarded the film that certificate must have fell asleep during the Mrs Doyle lookalike sexual assault scene.
