With a great, funny, moving and often satirical script, filmmaker Matthew Saville (‘Felony’) fills in the moments between witty one-liners and character banter with languid silences and overstretched gags. Caught somewhere between a comedy, a drama and a satire, the tone of this promising film tosses and turns becoming uneven, confusing and the films overall purpose gets lost.
A great, funny, moving and often satirical script...
With an unlikable character at the centre of the story, obviously redemption is on the cards, but from what exactly? Being a bad son, shitty father, lacking husband, subpar relator?
Filled with great performances by actors making the most of even the smallest rolls, ‘A Month of Sundays’ is funny, emotional and an enjoyable trip down guilt alley but between its cast and director, it promises so much and delivers... a cobblestone road.
