Marion Bridge, a review by goodguy

   Marion Bridge (CA 2002)
Written by: Daniel McIvor
Directed by: Wiebke von Carolsfeld
Starring: Molly Parker, Rebecca Jenkins, Stacy Smith
DVD: R1-US Film Movement (2005)

My rating:

Cover blurb: In the midst of struggling to overcome her self-destructive behavior, the youngest of three sisters, Agnes (Molly Parker), returns to her hometown in Nova Scotia determined to confront the past. Her arrival sets in motion a chain of events that allows a family of women to each in their own way re-connect with the world and each other. The film speaks volumes about siblings and parental relationships with a beautiful realized tale of loss, healing and humor.

The basic story of Marion Bridge is a bit like in those Lifetime movies of the week, but it is done right here. In fact, Carolsfeld's approach is so subtle and low-key that you might mistake it for boring, but it has the most startling effect in a confrontation near the end. Molly Parker is one of my favorite actresses, and she is great here as always. As a bonus, a very young Ellen Page can be seen here in a small but crucial role.

Auf Wiedersehen, Pet, a review by Rich

that's livin alright in Laos...

Being a big fan of Auf Wied this was always going to appeal. Nothing ground breaking or different from the series, this special was a final hurrah for the travelling brickies from the UK, and their ages dictated that as they were pushing it for this feature. A solid 6/10, but only for existing fans.

It's fun to see Oz and Spike in Los Angeles. Sadly there were not many crossovers like this.
