MINI REVIEW: Charlotte Ramplings could very likely be up for at least an Oscar nomination for her performance in 45 Years. Perhaps the highlight of the entire film is her subtle but powerful performance, particularly in the closing seconds of the film, leaving you with an idea of how grand and truly epic this small film really is. 45 Years is a film about the human experience, that stirs the emotions, plus it manages to generate intensity and surprising tension. It was a joy to watch this film, because of it’s delicate use of framing and a clever segment where Kate Mercer (Charlotte Rampling) expresses how she would like to feel, versus how she really feels, in a bout of beautiful piano playing. This film is not about old age, it’s about truth and life, things everyone can relate to.
