The Last Family - Film Review (Melbourne International Film Festival 2017)



I personally love a foreign language film. SBS and I have long had an exceptional relationship. I always think that it's an awesome way to wile away the weekend.

The Last Family is part of the MIFF, and it's well worth a look. I was lucky enough to see it at the Forum Theatre. The forum theatre has a distinct history as it was first built in 1837 as a residence, and has morphed a few times since then. Watch the figures as they are a little spooky when they have shadows on them whilst you're watching a movie. They certainly add to the experience. Grab an espresso martini or a beer (from the MIFF Festival Lounge ) and take your time to enjoy the cerulean blue ceiling. You'd almost think you were somewhere in the middle of Europe.

It is the first Polish film I've seen on the big screen, and it was engaging from the get-go. The cinematography was very clever, with the lens capturing times that are now almost distant memories. The film captured the essence of humanity and issues that we all face at one time or an other in our lives. Be prepared though as it's quite long.

If you've never seen a Polish film before, I would definitely recommend this one.
