A simple film with two characters of a long time couple whose lives get to be changed because of the woman’s scholarship in far California.
Calm and wise story proving that distance doesn’t matter – if something isn’t right, physical closeness or physical distance won’t change anything.
The story would probably end up the same way if one of the character didn’t move across the globe but say begin to work harder and be more absent in the house.
Universal truth is that sometimes we keep being with someone just for the sake of it. Because of being accustomed to them and everyday life together. And sometimes it just doesn’t work.
One more time Daniel Craig as 007. Again, Ralph Fiennes as M.
The Blond Bond begins to show grey hair, but one surprisingly strong character turns out to be Q (Ben Whishaw again), who suddenly appears in the field rather than solely remain in the HQ.
What I liked about Spectre – it nicely circles back to the original Casino Royale, to Quantum of Solace and to Skyfall – paying tribute to Craig’s previous Bond movies. It does more than that as – one attentive viewer may note – there are subtle nods to Casablanca, and previous James Bond films.
Amazingly shot, beautifully edited, with breathtaking racing scenes and charming Bond, as ever, with devilishly blue eyes and soft heart, as ever.
Great dialogues too, full of irony, double entendres and class. Slightly more is served on a silver plate, sligthly less is left for interpretation. Good one Mr. Mendes. I sincerely hope this is not the last time for Daniel Craig as Bond.
