Love Is Strange

Love Is Strange ★★★★

''I have missed having your body next to mine too much to have it denied to me for reasons of bad engineering.''

A wonderfully humane and affecting film that works on you like a gentle breeze, and although I wasn't quite locked in with the slightly awkward first 10-15 minutes, a little Chopin and a lot of Alfred Molina and Jonathan Lithgow goes a long way. The comparisons to Tokyo Story by some are a bit of a stretch, but the realistic family and home dynamics from an outsiders perspective strike a universal chord, and the film really comes into its own by the time it has reached its bittersweet dénouement.
