@jm_london what a peculiar thing to ask of a film... Especially since the men in this film are less of a prop than women are in your regular movie. Actually I found it extraordinarily balanced for a film that had two female leads. Doesn't paint anything black or white.
My opinion on the film: It feels very nineties, very straightforward, almost clinical - if it weren't for Rachel W.'s overacting. Still worth watching, it does take the viewer to a different place. It is also shot beautifully.
I quite enjoyed this one. The "jewish atmosphere" in North London is well depicted. Rachel Weisz and Rachel McAdams are great in their roles. I've got one objection, though. It seems Ms Weisz wanted to make a film where women had the main roles. Unfortunately, when you take this feminist approach to an extreme, male characters become just a part of the decoration, and they are almost useless, even for sex. This of course, leaves women with no choice but to have sex between them. I do not like a world where women are decorative dolls but I do not like a world where men are mere filling either. Some balance, please!
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
