Critic Reviews for 1:54
"1:54" intends to be a straight-shooting social drama about the multifaceted problem of bullying in the digital age, but it's out of touch with how real teenagers think and act and communicate. It's a modern film that feels like a relic.
A potentially meaningful movie that hands us a double dose of despair when a ray of hope was needed.
This timely Quebecois drama can sometimes creep too far into afterschool special territory, but the intense emotions on display give it a certain raw staying power.
Emotions are raw and vivid, and there are also moments of earthy humour and hopefulness to balance the story's bleak edges.
It's common for filmmakers to appear out of touch when making contemporary films dealing with bullying, often over-sensationalising and losing grip of reality. For Yan England's film to feel grounded is something of an achievement.
