The Song of Lunch (Niall MacCormick, 2010)


The Song of Lunch is a screen adaptation of a poem by Christopher Reid. It’s pretty narrative for a piece of genuine poetry: it’s about an elderly man who goes to lunch with a woman he once thought to be the love of his life. It’s descriptive, and quite detailed. It is absolutely brilliant from all sides: the direction is ingenious and could not be any better; the acting is flawless; all the technical implementation stuff is up to the standard. Generally speaking, the film is perfect. A pure work of art, – beautiful, curious, and fascinating.
