The Cinematheque Reviews: Beginners

When I first saw the trailer for Beginners I figured it was going to be another one of those quirky indie romantic comedies and/or family dramedies that are the proverbial dime-a-dozen and therefore lost interest pretty damn quickly - even with the lovely Melanie Laurent involved.  Well colour me surprised, for the film ended up having a quiet European charm to its non-linear story and was about as far from the typical quirky indie rom-com (or whatever) as one can get.  Perhaps not a great film, but a great surprise indeed.  My review of said film, complete with a surprised look to its rambling, is up and running over at The Cinematheque.
