Ken Loach’s 55th credit as a director since 1964

“This is Ken Loach’s 55th credit as a director since 1964. Now 83 years old, he still is capable of making the kind of gut-wrenching, pro-working class film that has distinguished his career.     …

I recommend … to see this extraordinary film by our greatest living radical filmmaker.”

The first and the last sentence of Louis Proyect’s review on SORRY WE MISSED YOU, clearly answering the question of whether or not to watch it.

It’s only another week to go, we look forward to seeing you!

Don’t forget, Platform 2 will play again live before the film;
so make sure you come early, have a drink or two, listen to the music – hopefully in the sun in the garden behind Alte Gerberei.

** SORRY WE MISSED YOU ** THU 20th AUGUST ** 8 PM **

Due to COVID-19 regulations we STILL need you to please help us and reserve your tickets here. Thank you!

Ken Loach’s superb swipe at zero-hours Britain

Not sure if you remember I, Daniel Blake, it was the ELFs film in September 2017 … its director Ken Loach has got another social drama for us now.

SORRY WE MISSED YOU is our August film, Loach presented it at the Cannes Film Festival last year …  “another tactlessly passionate bulletin from the heart of modern Britain, the land of zero-hours vassalage and service-economy serfdom”.

“… It’s fierce, open and angry, unironised and unadorned, about a vital contemporary issue whose implications you somehow don’t hear on the news.”

“Like their previous movie, I, Daniel Blake, it depicts the human cost of an economic development that we are encouraged to accept as a fact of life.  … I was hit in the solar plexus by this movie, wiped out by the simple honesty and integrity of the performances. …”

All quotes taken from Peter Bradshaw’s review in The Guardian – it’s worth reading the full article here.

** SORRY WE MISSED YOU ** THU 20th August ** 8 pm ** Alte Gerberei **

Block the date in your calendars – Platform 2 will be there as well and play live before the film.

74 % on Rotten Tomatoes

Checking the reviews on our next film WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE, it turns out to get quite a few different scores; most professional critics mostly don’t like it, on the other hand the audience scores are good. One example is Rotten Tomatoes.

It’s probably best to check out the trailer by yourself and get your own impression – the way we see it, the film is thoughtful, funny, quirky and full of inspiration = worth watching.

See you next week!
