Just attended the London premiere of “The Calling” by Jan Dunn.
This was the opening gala for the Rushes Soho Shorts Festival.
Very slowly getting to the speed needed in order NOT to leave the cinema. A few people did leave within the first two quarters of the hour.
Very good costumes. Nice settings, good colours. Can’t say anything about the music as I can’t remember it.
The film begins as difficult or even boring, but then turns out to be more and more ineresting and sucks the audience into the hoover of curiosity. In the end: a very warm message given out.
Excellent young actress: Emily Bleecham, great Brenda Blethyn.
All in all: 4 stars out of 6
