Enduring Love – Review

WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

The idyllic English countryside on a perfect summer afternoon. Joe (Craig) is about to propose to Claire (Morton).
Suddenly, a hot air balloon crashes into the field. The accident brings the bedraggled Jed (Ifans) into their lives
From then on, everywhere Joe goes, Jed follows. Soon, it starts getting creepy
Being stalked by Jed has tragic consequences for Joe’s relationship.

WHAT’S IT LIKE?

This will doubtless be praised as a welcome high point in British cinema, but it doesn’t deserve that accolade.
The characters behave so illogically, they don’t earn any sympathy and you’ll need to suspend your disbelief too much
The film’s best selling points are the balloon accident and the many powerful, painful scenes between Craig and Ifans.
Poorly written supporting roles fuel the film’s incoherence and waste good actors. Only Nighy emerges unscathed.

ENDURING LOVE opens November 26 2004
