Critic Reviews for 35 Rhums (35 Shots of Rum)
A sort of ballet of emotions, executed with weightless grace and poise.
Claire Denis, an acclaimed French director, makes films that defy the rules of Hollywood.
It's a beautiful picture but very quietly so, and definitely not for the ADHD set.
Modest in scope but very sure, Rum goes down smoothly indeed.
Celebrated French filmmaker Claire Denis is a master of atmosphere and immersion.
Audience Reviews for 35 Rhums (35 Shots of Rum)
while it's lovely, it's the least impressive denis film i've seen yet
It's quite pleasant once in a while to see a French modern day drama where the main characters don't jabber on endlessly about their thoughts and feelings. It's also quite refreshing to see a nearly all-black cast without making a big deal of it one way or another. Here the dynamics of a super-close father and daughter plus their would-be partners is all shown thrown through the mundane habils of everyday life, and intimacies and glances rather than histrionics. Not a whole heap happens, which might be disappointing to some, but if you're more interested in character than action, then there's much to enjoy in this story of an extended family's unwanted but inevitable change.
Daughter loves father dearly , repeat to close. Now I'm no slouch with plots but I struggled to work out who was who in the supporting cast and how they were interrelated. Such willful obfuscation may be intended but it ruined things for me.
