He came close to his fantasy, a renewal. But shortly let his mind takehim down a trail of various sorts of negativity. He was on that line abit, a line where he could have been witty and upbeat and challenging,a line he crossed into torpor and, well, annoyance, and more.

Or perhaps He knew something the other reviewers here (and they are avery solid group of reviewers) did not know: That She too wanted arenewal. Though her words bely that possibility, well into the film,she touches his hand in a way that is personal and perhaps a biterotic. Perhaps in her wonderful life with a successful author and twonondescript kids, she would like to recoup her past with He.

Perhaps He knew this, and sabotaged it. If so, Why?

The subject that screenwriters love to chat about, subtext, comes up. Ithought the Mamet fiasco, PHIL SPECTOR, had the characters alldelivering subtext as dialogue. Thus there was no mystery. Here,however, the subtext was given us in his unspoken words, his thoughts,as voice-over dialogue in his own head. Perambulating in his skull. Itworked.

For Rickman, I find this his second most compelling work, the firstbeing CLOSET LAND (which I saw on a Saturday night in a popular movietheater, but only me in the room for that film). Both works exploit hisrich voice.

It is not easy to transfer poetry to film. Poetry does not tell a storylike a simple novel, with the plot explained in logical prose. Insteadit approaches the subject sideways; with ideas, hints and suggestionswith which, by enrichment from your own experience, you arrive at ashadowy glimpse of something profound about what it is to be human.

This films achieves this in just the same way that a poem does. It is abrilliant film that I could watch over and over again, getting morefrom it each time. This is because the poem and film are catalysts tothe beholder's share, which will be different each time I view as mymood changes, and my experiences grow.

If you don't understand poetry then this film could be rather bleak,since it dwells on ageing, lost love, mortality and similar themes. Ifyou accept that these themes are ever present in our daily lives and wehave to come to terms with them, and you understand and enjoy poetrythen this is a must see film for you.

Alan Rickman plays a jaded publisher meeting a past flame (EmmaThompson) at an old haunt, now impersonally renovated. The publisherhas a one-track mind and views her every move as erotic.

This is a dramatised narrative poem. I'm sceptical about modern poetrybut this one's quite good. It may be familiar ground but a lot of thephrases are actually quite good: consciously poetic but a concisedescription. Fans of Alan Rickman might find it hard to control himselfas his character is aroused by everything: a squeezed hand, a glass ofwine meeting his lips, a comely waitress, even a pepper shaker. Thestory is told through his perspective, much of it as voice-over. Theswitch between voice-over and dialogue really works, creating tensionand drama in what is a fairly undramatic scene. It's like a short play.

Both Rickman and Thompson speak the blank verse (with the occasionalrhyme) very naturally. Their characters are intellectual people and thetalk comes naturally to them, particularly Rickman'semotionally/creatively/sexually frustrated character.

It's only 50 minutes so it's worth a watch. It would have been nice ifit were part of a series of poems.
