Aftersun

At a fading vacation resort, 11-year-old Sophie treasures rare time together with her loving and idealistic father, Calum. As a world of adolescence creeps into view, beyond her eye Calum struggles under the weight of life outside of fatherhood. Twenty years later, Sophie's tender recollections of their last holiday become a powerful and heartrending portrait of their relationship, as she tries to reconcile the father she knew with the man she didn't.

    You need to imagine half of the movie.
    I cant love more Paul Mescal and his realism in front of the camera, is just a dude doing real things and not and like and actor doing an script, but for me, the movie is incredibly overhyped..

    Of course the boring slow moments adds some "truth" into the film but when the slow moving silent shots are 50% of the movie, you finish thinking is the film deserves the full paid ticket or you need the half price refunded.

    To be honest, I can watch filmed vacations with Paul 24h daily like a big brother program, but it is not the point..

    I understand the movie wants to be subtle and open to leave some in feelings in you to finish the work of create a story, but it was too much blank spaces.. just too much.

    Arty, creative, clever and thoughtful
    I had to watch this twice to work it out.

    I watched this for Paul Mescal after watching Normal people.

    This is a memoir of a young girls first and last trip abroad with her father.

    There are film clips and flash backs.

    He is obv suffering from some kind of depression and alcohol abuse.

    Incredibly arty and unusual style of filming making this unique and rather clever.

    Its not a film you watch on a saturday night with alcohol and expect speed and be exhilaration.

    Theres a lot of thought provoking moments. Theres a lot of pain there and it made me weep.

    Any low scores on here are from not understanding the film.
