is very good at casting actors and actresses who are very believable in their roles, e.g., the older married couple
and the wife's ill mother. Furthermore, although the plot was complicated and the movie had many, many flashbacks
to what at first appeared to be erratically different time periods prior to the main event - the eight car highway
collision - and the numerous stories surrounding all of the parties involved, I still found it relatively easy to follow.
I also was surprised by what proved to be the initial cause of the accident even though I had to admit that there were
numerous clues fairly presented throughout the entire movie. Finally, I thought that the way the movie dealt with the
various issues raised among the various parties was very thought provoking and timely to courrent real life issues.
I was glad to see it again, over 2 nights, due to Amazon Prime's generous policy with streaming. K.B.
"A split second that changes everything." - host, David Tennant
Five RIVETING Stars! This Masterpiece Contemporary film, "Collision", is a long, but very interesting 3 hour plus film which is divided into two parts. It details the people and the factors that were involved in a fictional Friday evening multi-car pileup at 5:57 PM on the A12 route that leads into and from London, England.
The 2009 British film begins after the accident when the lead investigator, Detective Inspector John Tolin starts going through the files, after being warned the government might have been involved and legally liable. As he proceeds, he places the names of the survivors and deceased on a blank white board. Generally as each picture is revealed, the film follows the victims as they go about their day leading up to the tragedy and what they intended to do if the accident had not occurred: 2 unrelated secretive meetings, an opening speech, a leisurely drive, a family dinner, the mysterious "Home 2 Bed" panel truck driver, and so on. And when the accident happens, it is truly quick and awful, on both sides of the median. Then a lawsuit is quickly threatened. The most interesting part begins when the relentless Tolin investigates the occupants of each vehicle involved and finds in some cases there is less innocence than first suspected. Indeed, Tolin has his own problems, even with his female partner which is tracked throughout the film. While very long, it is often riveting material that unfolds long after the accident, as the truth about the participants is revealed. The thoughtful and unexpected ending is very well done. Starring Douglas Henshall, Kate Ashfield, Dean Lennox Kel, Phillip Davis, Sylvia Syms, Paul Mcgann, Lucy Griffiths, Claire Rushbrook, et al. Created by Anthony Horowitz. Directed by Marc Evans. Highly Recommended. Five COMPELLING Stars! (Masterpiece Contemporary. Rated TV-PG. Color. CC. Time-3:20:34.)
I plan to watch again during the winter.
