  1. pluviosity's rating of the film Their Finest

    The movie created itself as unnecessary to be analyzed any deeper. It fell to the usual cliche, and even more formulaic than the fake film on the story. It's really irritating of course, to see highly talented actors with highly potential story idea to be wasted. But the movie didn't want you to be stressed, just pretend you're too tired to think, and enjoy the light flick..and in the end, it's not really that bad.

  2. angelicidea's rating of the film Their Finest

    Goes down the well-worn romcom route with the war providing an unusual background.

  3. fearraigh's rating of the film Their Finest

    There's an interesting conceit underneath it all but Their Finest seems slipshod in many parts (some characters, such as Nighy's are a bit too modern to pass muster as war-time folk). It's all a bit plodding and the only thing one learns from it is British cinema can be every bit as dreary when entrusted to a foreign director.

  4. Ingrid Aldama's rating of the film Their Finest

    Was good, but I expected more. Maybe because I have really loved other Lone Scherfig's films. But something was missing here. It's not bad. I liked it just fine.

  5. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Their Finest

    A slightly charming and eventually slightly clever little movie. Jake Lacy needs a starring role.

  6. ABVH's rating of the film Their Finest

    Not dramatic enough to be drama, not funny enough to be comedy, but they do try.

  7. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Their Finest

    On an original subject (the shooting of a film under the bombing) Lone SCHERFIG offers us a melodrama a lot less interesting than "An Education" === Sur un sujet original (tourner un film sous les bombardements) Lone SCHERFIG nous offre un mélo convenu très en deça de "An Education".

  8. SafeStanding's rating of the film Their Finest

    Watchable but a little formulaic at times. Arterton and Nighy shine in an overall slow, unremarkable audience pleasing melodrama.

  9. Drew.'s rating of the film Their Finest

    What a wonderful film about films.

  10. smndvdcl's rating of the film Their Finest

    As a feminist treatise, this film is compelling (the context of women breaking through patriarchal cracks in industry in WWII era), as a depiction of war, it is variable (great on depicting the making of propaganda but short on contextual exposition), but the characterisation of romance was far too formulaic, with enough 'deus ex machina' moments underscored by a swelling soundtrack that remained mawkish and clunky.

  11. msmichel's rating of the film Their Finest

    This charming blitz set tale about a film crew making a timely film on Dunkirk is a quite wonderful adaptation of the Lissa Evans novel that reps Scherfig's best film since 'An Education'. Gemma Arterton is very effective here but Bill Nighy steals the film every single second he's on screen. Refreshingly old fashioned and very charming throughout.

  12. Filipe F. Coutinho's rating of the film Their Finest

    A charming and sentimental film that often misses the mark on charm and sentiment. The big, important moments are always undercut and rushed, leaving an idea that the film was trimmed in the wrong places. Still, Arterton and Nighy are delightful (as always) and Jake Lacy continues to prove himself as a comedy talent.

  13. ugur's rating of the film Their Finest

  14. ronny's rating of the film Their Finest

    full of hilarious moments but it's much more than a "comedy," which is how it's listed on MUBI...
