      Stephen Romei The Australian At 118 minutes it is an hour shorter than the play. As with any theatrical adaptation, it relies on the dialogue and the acting, and both are strong. You come to know the men in this room, and the husband and wife who want them to succeed. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 18, 2021 Full Review Lorraine Ali Los Angeles Times The film is at its strongest when it uses their individual journeys during the negotiations to serve as metaphors for the complicated emotions and human suffering intertwined in the larger Israeli-Palestinian mess. Jun 9, 2021 Full Review John Doyle Globe and Mail Ruth Wilson in particular embodies a plaintiveness that's heart-wrenching. Jun 1, 2021 Full Review Brian Costello Common Sense Media This is a fascinating look at a unique moment in history, showing how empathy and face-to-face discussion between even the bitterest of rivals can reveal shared humanity. Rated: 4/5 Aug 11, 2021 Full Review Juan Barquin Hyperallergic The movie is unable to translate a subject so inherently theatrical into anything visually appealing beyond questionably color-graded conversations in largely empty rooms. Aug 3, 2021 Full Review Alex Behan Stuff.co.nz It's impossible for a movie to do justice to the details of this complex, long-running dispute, but Oslo is gripping.

      Michael W This HBO movie was great. Ruth Wilson, Andrew Scott, Jeff Wilbusch, and the rest of the cast did a great job in this movie.This true story about the Oslo Peace Accords was dramatic and inspirational. It's about trying to make peace with sworn enemies anyway possible. If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out sometime. It's worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/09/23 Full Review Jessica O I thought the movie was already old due to its cinematography. It reminds me of the 1990s. The actors played well too, especially Andrew Scott. Oh, how I wish the agreement had been pushed forward. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/12/22 Full Review Audience Member One of the finest films I have ever seen. The writing is absolutely superb, the acting is imbued with true depth of feeling, and the story itself will endure far into the future. This is a film that deserves to be seen by all. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Oslo (HBO) is a movie version of the play about the diplomatic back channel formed to negotiate peace with the PLO and the Israeli government. The play (from what I understand) was three hours long and this film is only two hours long. I don't know what was cut (I suspect some background info on our main couple as their entire role is a bit vague in the movie). I found it watchable but often felt it cut away form the diplomatic action and it was often very unclear what moved the characters forward towards comprise in many of the encounters, but every once in a while, the dialog clicks into place. I think some of the casting is a bit odd ...seeming more movie star than historical figure (and skewing way to British). It is likely more interesting to history and communications majors than the public, but even then, I can't say it is a top tier experience. For me 3 stars out of 5... and that may be generous. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review wayne m Oslo is a smart and intelligent film that displays humanity in a time of crisis. The film is based on the play of the same name and is about the Oslo Peace Talks of 1993 between Israel and the PLO. Ruth Wilson and Andrew Scott play Norwegian diplomats who 'back channel' talks in a neutral location to attempt to bring peace to the Middle East. The talks were essentially 'secret' for the purpose of them being more constructive. This well acted film is a good look at the history of the time and how personal dynamics can impact any peace talks. There is a lot personality on display here along with some cracking dialogue. Some plays don't always translate well to film but this film mostly does a very good job. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member 1 out of 5 stars. Boring story. Long. And uninteresting. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/16/21 Full Review Read all reviews
