As an adaptation, it captures McEwan's sharp critique of pre-war social dynamics and a tragic dramatic irony that dooms the tale's protagonists. The brief scenes of war echo Wilfred Owen's poetry painted into motion picture. Knightley and McAvoy arrest the screen, and the ensemble add layer upon layer to an at times disturbing, and always deeply felt tale.
Younger sisters always snooping around, goddamnit! The dichotomy between reality and Briony's point of view is masterfully directed, while twelve-year-old Saoirse Ronan gives the best performance of the whole cast. Give this movie a second watch to fully appreciate it's cinematography and beautiful shots.
The best, most overlooked film of 2007. It's on par with "Brief Encounter" for romantic devastation, one of the best shot, best cut films I've ever seen, and certainly one of the most emotional. Do not be fooled by its middle-brow marketing, this is great cinema.
Well-crafted, but ultimately dull period drama is disjointed and plodding despite some effective scenes and impressive set pieces. Excellent cinematography and production design, and some great performances - but the story is just never compelling enough. Great score by Dario Marianelli, though the insistant typewriter clacking was a questionable choice.
