We have taken some photos of "Half Broken Things". They represent actual movie quality.
From the onset you can tell there are going to be some severely disturbed and dysfunctional individuals in this film. What made it interesting though was how the writers managed to bring the three main (and completely unrelated) characters into the same realm - in a fashionable way. Beautiful countryside, an historical mansion and grounds, mixed with an opportunity for three people to live out their dream lives offers plenty of chances for things to get unbelievable. But in the end, everything appeared quite absorbing (in a weird kind of way), and the filmmakers did a great job of bringing it all together. There is plenty of sad moments and realizations of how pathetic these character's lives have been, but the narration and foreshadowing help move things along in a good way. The DVD cover art on both sides gives away the second-to-last twist, which would have made things better not knowing. Plus I have learned what certain phrases mean on Brit DVD descriptions so I had a strong idea what the last scene would be. Overall, a solid film but skip looking at/reading the DVD case to stay surprised, and there are no real special features to speak of so it might be a better renter than a buyer.
This review is from: Half Broken Things (DVD) My first disc did not work, came up Invalid Region. The service to replace this item was swift and very pleasing. Only trouble is the second disc comes up Invalid Region, and will not play. Now I have two discs that won't play and am out of pocket 31 od dollars. Please can you help. Someone said you have to format the disc differently to play in Australia. I should imagine you send discs all over the world that work, what is wrong with mine. Look forward to your response to this matter.Regards Sandra Payne7 Torres StreetWarrane 7018Australia0417439869
Three people (Jean, Michael and Steph) from very different backgrounds,land up together and spend time in an almost idyllic setting. Jean, amatriarchal figure, desperately tries to create the life she couldnever enjoy before. She had to look after her mother and from this andother statements she makes, one can conclude that she had difficulty infinding and or maintaining meaningful relationships. Michael andSteph's conduct perfectly illustrates how seductive one's own desirescan be. The "I deserve this" attitude blinds them to the reality ofwhat they are actually doing. Because they have challenging lives, liesand deceit, theft and common criminality becomes acceptable and isalmost glamorized in the movie. The viewer is made to sympathize withtheir self-centered delusions. Vulgar crime is portrayed through a softlens of acceptability; crime is excused because of the "deserving"circumstances. When Michael and Steph enter Jean's life, the scene isset for her to create her fantasy world. Jean seems fair and softspoken, decent, moral, virtuous and respectable. But in fact Jean ismanipulating others in order to satisfy her own needs - with deadlyconsequences. Jean looks pure but is in fact fatally tainted. Jean isthe epitome of pure evil. This movie makes for very good entertainmentand is well worth a watch. It makes one realize that sometimes you haveto take a step back and critically look at what you are doing. The"Me-Me-Me" attitude of so many people today, can in fact be verydangerous...
This is great movie! Great acting, Great story and great production. This is a well made drama that is anything but predictable. The best TV made program I have seen in a long while. If you're on the fence take a chance on this you won't regret it!
