There’s some great stuff here - especially the visuals and Nighy’s performance - but it’s largely unremarkable. The story translates well to 1950s stiff upper lip British society, but overall the movie doesn’t do very much to distinguish itself so ends up just kind of existing. It really was damn pretty though which I didn’t expect at all

An achingly empathetic drum-tight performance from Nighy makes this a must-see (the croak of his voice is painful to listen to for the emotions it represses), but like Kurosawa’s original, there are some weaknesses to the material that rob the film of greater impact, especially the hideously clunky exposition drop in the final act, which keeps Nighy off-stage while the remaining cast talk about him. Convincing (and luscious) throwback to 50s film-making in style and décor is a definite plus.

This remake of a true masterpiece is only really really good. Nighy's performance deserves all the praise it's getting. It's subtle and thoughtful and avoids mawkish sentiment at every turn. The key scene with Aimee Lou Wood that sets up the final act is probably the best work he's ever done.

It's just Ikiru in a western setting. Luckily Ikiru is a great movie.
