Beware! This movie is OFFBEAT. It's NOT a horror film. That's the good & "bad" news -- good for those who enjoy independent film productions & bad news for those who do not like them. It took me about 30 minutes to grasp the gist of the plot. Although I felt somewhat confused, I considered that time to be akin to watching a mosaic unfold gradually. If you are even somewhat familiar with parapsychology, you might find yourself smiling or laughing, as I did, when the 2 male lead characters talk about their procedures or use "professional jargon" when talking with each other about their work. Without spoiling the plot development, I'll only state that about half way through the film, the tone of the film changes from mostly dark comedy to mostly drama, and I found that change to be smooth. All in all, I give all 5 main characters "good scores" for their performances. I especially enjoyed the performances of Ed Gaughan, Andy Buckley, Tuppence Middleton & Paprika Steen. I had not seen any of them in other films I've watched (and I've seen thousands -- LITERALLY), but I think all 4 of them have the potential to be solid character actors/actresses, if they're not already. If you're an indie fan, I think you'll enjoy this quirky, almost obscure UK release.

Skeletons is a real gem. A fascinating story played out with excellent character actors that gets you laughing at first and then sucks you into a beautiful human drama. I can't understand why this has gotten so little press in the US as ir won a big award in Europe and is really one of the best films (if not the best) that I have seen this year.

Format: DVD
This quirky little film tells the story of two co-workers, Simon and Bennett, who travel around the country (that country being England) providing a sort of investigative service to people. They usually walk to the customer's homes, fill out some paperwork, use some special equipment, and then do something with a cupboard or closet in the house. At first, what's going on isn't explained and viewers have to be patient. Pretty soon it is clear that they can review people's history and see the "skeletons in their closets." The first couple they meet is about to get married and they want the procedure done so there are no secrets between them. Simon and Bennett go upstairs, put on some special equipment, go into the couple's closet, and relive some of their secret memories. She's been to Latin dance classes without telling anyone; he's picked up some prostitutes in a nearby town but has only talked to them about existential/mid-life crisis issues. Except for that last prostitute. Bennett wants to offer some advice to the couple but Simon quickly cuts him off. Their job is just to provide information, not analysis or advice. They leave on foot (most of their traveling is walking) and wait for their next job.

Simon goes off to an isolated spot where he uses his powers to go into his own childhood memories, which is not allowed in their company. The company is not identified by name, though their boss (played by Jason Isaacs) shows up to fill them in on a new assignment. One of the A-level teams in the company had some serious problems, so the boss wants to send Simon and Bennett on an especially difficult case. If they can do the job, they will move up to the A-level and get to work on really significant people (politicians, world leaders, celebrities, etc.).

Quirky, warm, funny and very English. This film is a delight. I first saw it at the wonderful Adelaide Film Festival in 2011 and went without any expectations - this is by far the best way to approach this film. Ed Gaughan and Andrew Buckley are wonderful in the lead roles,and the wonderfully named Paprika Steen is also superb.Skeletons

But it really is enjoyable and relaxing to watch, I did not know any of the actors, but the played their roles interestingly. The plot is simple and original, two everyday fellows go to people houses to remove the skeletons from people's closet. If you like the odd and strange, then spend some rainy Sunday watching this.
