The Escape (2017) Reviews

  • A captivating film that intimately captures the feeling of entrapment


    It's one of those films that portray an emotion or situation you have to be familiar with in order to truly appreciate it's beauty. The cinematic portrayal of depression at it's finest. The feeling of entrapment in a life that feels like there isn't an escape, the feeling of despair, the fear of pursuing your personal happiness at the cost of another persons happiness. These were artistically portrayed very intimately, and I really appreciated that. It was well executed. Great performance by Gemma Arterton, there were some scenes in the beginning that gave me shivers. A lot mixed reviews for this title, and I understand why. People who have experienced a similar situation would resonate with this film very much. One of the reviewers called her motives unrealistic and selfish, that 'every mum' goes through this. That's untrue, every person is different. Every situation is different. Some people love their roles of being mothers, and go through their life without a care of other possibilities. Some people enter motherhood ambitious, not realizing the sacrifice. The sacrifice of personal accomplishment and meaning. And I feel like this is what the film was trying to portray. A film not for everyone, but for those who do resonate with it will appreciate it.

  • 1st class acting, story needed work.


    Wow, this an excellent portrayal of depression, and I'm sure it'll resonate with so many mothers/wives out there. It is so good, so realistic and recognisable, it was very difficult to watch at times. Gemma Arterton should be applauded for her work here. Unfortunately I felt the narrative too simplistic and the ending unsatisfying. They've also gone for minimal dialogue, which whilst I'm sure some would argue you don't need as everything is written on their faces, I personally found it much too minimal. In summary - amazing and moving portrayal of depression and helplessness in the acting, but ultimately a not wholly satisfying film to watch. 7/10

  • Pretensious, boring but well-shot


    This movie is basically a hyperbolic perspective on everyday boredom mixed with some pocket philosophy on braking free from it. The dialogues are poorly written, all of the characters are self-absorbed and shallow and the best idea they could come up with for the grand escape is a superficial enamorment with medieval tapestry, eating pancakes in Paris or screwing a photographer. It's well shot though.

  • All the close ups...


    I have never watched anything this well directed for this type of context. Yes its about the 'typical' problems inherent in marriage but that's a very small part of it. For me, this film isn't just about that, it's more about, without generalising, how the character, the woman, the mother, the stay at home housewife, the dedicated family being, had to find herself again. What stands out throughout the film was that she was very much aware that she had lost something, that something wasn't right. You could see that from the very beginning. And what it comes down to is: Is it time to leave? (As opposed to: can I leave?) What I believe should be the focus of principle here is that while there are various externalities that result in the making of a being as it is, marriage and it's societal demands of its participants have remain unchanged for a while. And In this film, Gemma was indeed tired of being the unappreciated housewife and sex doll of sorts. That's not a pleasant experience for anyone, I can imagine. And so I rated this film a 10/10. The close ups are too real...nothing felt like acting to me while watching the film. It's real. It's real for someone.

  • I enjoyed this....


    Granted the first 20 minutes is overly long explaining Tara's life and state of mind. The scene in the car park of the multiple mum's, with toddlers and shopping trollies was enough to do this! I also found some of the editing and photograpy a bit irksome e.g. some point of view shots. In the end though, I could relate to both characters and this is why I enjoyed it. Gemma Arterton who plays Tara was great. Stripped of make-up, she was stark but utterly graceful. As W.B. Yeats would say "A terrible beauty is born." For the record, this is my first review and I am not involved in the film in anyway!
