Watch: Atonement

4 January 2008

I went to see Atonement last night and it was very good indeed. Yes, 6 months after everybody else I know. It had an excellent and perfectly believable storyline, plenty of surprises (even if I did guess the end result before it finished), great acting and exquisite cinematography(which was almost of a Peter Greenaway/ Sacha Vierney intensity). Some of the scenes of Dunkirk were incredible. Don’t know whether I was feeling particularly emotionally vulnerable last night but I was completely choked by the end of it.  Something I am particularly susceptible to with films about the Second World War (or the First for that matter).
