4 Months, 3 Weeks and 2 Days

4 Months, 3 weeks and 2 days: didn’t even read the synopsis for this one (wish I had so it didn’t rock my face off!) but watched it because of the critical acclaim it’s generated. Pretty brutal – subtly and graphically in parts – and realistic drama that hits home pretty hard. The acting’s extraordinary and there’s a lot of long single-take shots that heighten the drama drama – similar to Michael Haneke films. More than anything, the film’s about the extremes of friendship. A must-see if you like your world cinema, but for others it’d be very much love/hate.

Score: 7/10

  1. I heard a lot about this when it came out but never got round to it. I like Hanekeand world cinema though so based on that i might put it on my watch list.

      Absolutely, about 30 months later this film’s still haunting me, and just as memorable. Not for the faint-hearted but a great example of ‘World cinema’.
