Distant Voices, Still Lives Review


This truly stange British production looks at a sepia-toned past where memory is revisited only through song. Everybody sings, all the time, developing a wonky revision of a family's life around the turn of the century (plus a few decades before and after). It's hit and miss, failing to really generate a really coherent vision of the past. Pete Postlethwaite provides the film's only standout performance, but it's so brief as to be quite unmemorable.
