The Aftermath

This afternoon I visited the cinema with good friend K to see the Aftermath.  Set in post World War II, a British colonel and his wife are assigned to live in Hamburg during the post-war reconstruction, but tensions arise with the German who previously owned the house. 

The aftermath

This is exactly our kind of film – oozing with romantic tension, and it cleverly tackles how deeply people can be affected by the loss of a family member, without realising the impact it has on others.  I’d like to see this again.

Living with a Dad and three boys, I’m inundated with man/boy things so it’s especially good to spend time in female company.  This film reminded me of two others we really enjoyed – Far from the Madding Crowd, and A Little Chaos.  We like pretty much all good romantic feel good films, especially when they include Ethan Hawke, such as the Before Sunrise series and the more recent Juliet, Naked.

 

What are your favourite films?  Can you recommend any good romantic films?
