Slow… But worth it.
People giving this film a bad review are people who have either no patience or no experience with loss.
There is simply no bad acting. Cillian does what Cillian does best: dark and broody… Wonderful footage, shot with love for the harsh environment and people.
This film is for people who don’t mind – or even like – to wait and not having the plot & the solution & the happy ending being presented in the first five minutes.
Take your time, it’s worth it.
A Film’s Answer to Speed Reading
This movie is like a carcass with no bones… a lovely building with no foundation… music notes without a staff.
The scenery is beautiful, the cast is superb, but so much is left to the audience to figure out on their own, that you are often left scratching your head. You are never given a reason to care about the mother or son… there is little depth to their characters, it’s very “surface”, like the ice that appears ubiquitously in the movie, and in some cases, in the characters’ behavior.. Suddenly the mother seems to be saying goodbye to her son, and you’re like “WTF?”
Aloft is like a book that someone has randomly torn pages out of. And the anticipated ending/reunion? I blinked and the credits rolled!
This would have been a terrific movie if it had been longer, more fleshed out, and had an ending worthy of putting all the time, money and effort into making a movie to begin with.
