The Turning

– The lack of coherence and thematic connection between the short stories.
– If you are not familiar with the work of Australian writer Tim Winton, you cannot really concur with the film.
– The scattered presence of brilliant performances, such as Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving, that make some of the stories to stand out more than others.
– It is way too long! 180 minutes in the uncomfortable seats of Friedrichstadt Palast at 21:00 o’clock, after a day full of films, is not something that you can cope with very easily!
– The impressive graphic designs of the opening and closing sequences, as well as of the intertitles between the short films.
