Whether the Weather is Fine is a delicate mash of tones. It’s darkly funny, but also bleak and beautiful. Even though it meanders a lot, it never feels uneventful. It’s a film worth revisiting to catch any subtext. It also has one of my favorite musical scores this year. #TIFF21
What people are saying?
Steven Weintraub thought Camille Griffin’s #SilentNight was excellent. The movie starts off like you’re going to have a fun time watching friends visiting each other in the English countryside until you learn it’s everyone’s last night on Earth due to a poison cloud. Out later this year. #TIFF
Erik Davis Germany has selected the wonderful I’M YOUR MAN as its Oscar entry this year. It’s about a woman (Maren Eggert) who reluctantly spends 3 weeks w/ a humanoid robot (Dan Stevens) crafted to be her perfect partner. Sounds silly, but it’s actually very poignant & lovely.
