      Audience Member No holds barred in this teenage anti-love story, where the audience's sympayhies are brutally swung around. Like riding a rollercoaster with a loose seatbelt, Stevie's deadly credibility puts the viewer in Nikko's mind and is tortured by each twist of the story. The 'accidental' death of the egg-collector could have been handled with more pathos, indicating that it's Emma Booth that's really carrying the movie to its heights, but she shouldn't be so shy about stripping off if her vamp-character's sexual predatory-credibility is not to spoil the mature audience's belief. Watch right to the end for the full story, and beware of reviews in the media which clearly were written by economical/lazy critics who didn't. More than a homage to Trainspotting and/or Shallow Grave at moments, without hitting the excellence of these worthy antecedents, can't wait for more from Golden. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie, with a very interesting topic. At first you'll feel a little lost, but the plot grows intriguing and in the end most of the pieces come together, although I disliked the happy ending. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review andrei d Un film despre doi oameni care ar vrea si nu prea sa moara si despre cum intre a face si a nu face e un spatiu tare subtire... si despre birdwatching. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Didn't know birdwatchers are so much obsessed about it! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member trae buen soundtracck, pero la historia esta bien regular :/ Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member It looks like wanna be something atypical & peculiar (cinematography, music scores, for example) for another coming-of-age story. However, somehow, the tone sounds so qirky, in addition to the disjointed narrative & irritating, blank protagonist & other side-characters depiction; Harry Treadaway is impressive in delivering his role though.

      Britt Hayes Birth.Movies.Death. Gebbe captures this internal conflict with stunning clarity and an achingly apt amount of grace... Sep 25, 2019 Full Review Simon Weaving Screenwize This sometimes haunting, sometimes lost film about two suicidal people is - like its main characters - pretty to watch but never quite sure where its going. Yet despite the looseness, its an intriguing tale that comes home strongly. Rated: 3.5/5 Sep 26, 2010 Full Review Read all reviews
