I love quiet films because they actually are not. There is so much going on beneath the surface, which is the sign of considered and also intuitive directing, in this case. Joanna Hogg's treatment, and mode of filming (2010) is roiling and rife with contradictions and ironies. Not for action-lovers, and the Guardian quote on the poster about "frequently very funny" is absolutely untrue. Great if you love sucker punches. The only problem with it was that it did not come with closed captions.
