Film Review


Footnote is a very engaging film with good acting, storytelling, and cinemetography. The main conflicts are between career and family, ethics and rivalry. The scenario is one I have never heard of before, and it turns out to be a very interesting one; a good variety of tensions play out over the course the film. Think of what it is like overhearing a quiet, almost political, drama play out among the neighbors, one which you somehow find yourself listening in on, and it is hard to know who you ought to be rooting for or what you think the outcome should be. The action consists of intelligent and conflicted intrigue. The film's content fits in well with the production itself, which I'd characterize as "sophisticated indie" -- fresh and intelligent filmmaking with production values that match. The film has a very dynamic feel, the pace is quick, and so a viewer must make a bit effort and pay attention to get the most out of the film, though the effort is worth it.

4.0 / 5.0
