5 3 A beautifully made film.  Characters extremely well drawn.  Sense of loss very well conveyed.

4 4 Oh for a Spanish childhood

4 4 Very upsetting in places.  Brilliant filming.

4 4 Quietly moving.  Great to see a Catalan language film on the international circuit

1 1 Very queasy making camera work!  Linguistically interesting but……[unhappy face emoji]

5 5  Enjoyed the film very much. Didn't want it to end.

5 5  Loved the film

5 4  The moth was superb

4 4  Difficult to sit through, obnoxious man

4 4  Too much use of the F word; not really needed

4 4  Faithful unto Death.' A relationship fractures at a crucial moment as portrayed with some accomplished acting

3 3  A sad story, well told.

3 3  Interesting story of co-dependency. Excellently played by both primary characters. Shame I couldn't warm to either of the characters - there was something fake about the whole film for me.

3 3  Glenn Close was brilliant

3 3  Brilliant acting but plot too easy to predict

2 2  Thin and cliched. Just about watchable

5 5  Revenge is sweet!

5 4  Stomach gripping - achieved what I assumed the directo wanted to say on the packet

5 4  Brilliant mix of hopelessness, misery, bullying, retribution and the wonderful comedy of the utterly ludicrous

4 4  Darkly comic realism - evocative if not uplifting

4 4  But did not like extreme violence

4 3  The dogs were superb. The film was a good watch

4 3  Revenge is not quite so sweet

4 3  Thought we had chosen to attend a non-violent films!!!!

3 3  Noir but bordering on just plain stupid

1 1  Deeply unpleasant

0 0  Awful!

5 5  Cool, arty, relaxing, inspiring

5 5  Beautiful

5 5  Brilliant. Unusual. Very artistic.

5 5  Il evoquait le memoires joyeuse de la France

5 5  Charmante!

5 5  Charmant pour les yeux

4.5 4.5  Great!

4 4  Imaginitive ideas and likeable artists (if only a bit long) but reassuring that art can still have popular support and involvement of ordinary people.

5 5  Brilliant acting

5 5  Brilliant acting

4 5  Gloomy film. Great performance by Maxine Peake. Life in the 70s

3 4  Maxine Peake on fine form. Plot somewhere between educating Rita and My Fair Lady, with northern grit

2 3  Good performance by Maxine Peake, but storyline unconvincing and hackneyed.

5 5  A really fantastic film

5 5  Tense and claustrophobic thriller

5 5  Brilliant.  What a tour de force.  Excellent acting and suspense!

4 5  I thought minimalism was for furniture and I don't like it, but this was great.  Fantastic acting, twists and turns and kept interest throughout.

4 4  You should not have said in your summary that there was a "massive plot twist" because I guessed very early on who'd done it and I would otherwise not have done so.

4 4  Knew it was Iben who had killed baby.  Very claustrophobic and intense.

5+ 5+  To see this particular film was one of the reasons I joined IFS. It was even better than I expected but even more depressing than expected. Man's inhumanity to man. Apostasy - hypocrisy. Thank you.

4 4  Keep well away from Wellington Road

4 2  Depressing

3 1  Beyond dreary

3 1  There's always room to mess with people's minds!

1 1  A thoroughly ugly film, like a cockroach crawling through your dinners.

 5 5  Brilliant film. Tense, moving, thought-provoking. Shocking but realistic. Best I've seen this season.

 5 4  A strange mix of harshness and hope but too harrowing to give 5:5

 5 4  Captivating; very well made and rather traumatic

 5 3  Hard to watch

4 5  Never doubt the power of solidarity! Vinceremos!

4 4  V. G. animation of a coup.

 4 3  Stylish and fast moving search for meaning. Jusqu'à la dérive

 4 3  Disturbing and realistic portrayal of the difficult dilemmas found in modern day life

 4 3  Magnificently and very convincingly acted by all major characters. Quite well put together (a few editing blips for me). But overall didn't quite gel for me.

 3 1  Deeply tedious. Complete lack of continuity - at the start she had no luggage but had 3 different sweaters and a change of shoes

 2 2  Tedious

 2 0  Rubbish

 1 1  Unusual, but not entertaining

5 5  Spike Lee excelling (even) himself. Another sad reflection on man's inhumanity to man.

5 5  Very powerful and thought provoking.

5 5  Well crafted exposé of US racism, as it was and as it continues today.

5 5  Needed a degree of humour to make such an awful subject watchable. Ending brought it back to sad reality well.

5 5  Terrific!

4 5  This history is frightening

4 5  Liked the patchwork approach

4 4  Excellent in so many ways but sad about the predictable political bias at the end.

4 4  Thought provoking

 5 4  A very engrossing performance but difficult to follow at times.

 4 4  Dance will out: colourful biopic with monochrome flashbacks.
