Dir: Joanna Hogg




Joanna Hogg (Unrelated, Archipelago) continues to refine her formal style while exploring the tropes of middle class life in contemporary Britain.

This time her concerns lie with a pair of fifty-something artists D and H (Viv Albertine from the Slits and Turner Prize-nominated artist Liam Gillick) taking stock of their lives and deciding to sell their modernist London home in which they have shared for the last twenty years.

It’s a delicate, astutely observed and fascinating x-ray of modern life. The modernist glass box they call home, with its endlessly reconfigurable walls and fluid spaces, reflects the oft-obscured internal lives of the couple who unconsciously navigate each other’s personal space avoiding the difficult conversations and choices with which they now find themselves faced.

As ever with Hogg, it’s an illuminating portrait of a moneyed class which rarely appears on our screens. At once alienating and moving, Hogg confirms her position as one of the more cerebral filmmakers currently working in British cinema.
