Bravo! A must watch movie!

January 1, 2019
Delaware Shore (2018) directed by Raghav Peri. It's 98 mins Dramatic thought provoking movie. A Holocaust survivor who escapes the concentration camps finds refuge on a secluded Delaware Beach and how she survives. A film full of wonderful characters. Especially the way story is narrated adds a lot to the film. The rhythmic background music contributes to the atmosphere. From the beginning it draws the viewers attention. Absolutely remarkable direction. Memorable performance by lead actors Gail Wagner, Emily McKinley Hill & James Robinson Jr. Marvelous details that you might not catch on first viewing. MUST WATCH MOVIE!!

Well done

Wow... be prepared to be on an emotional rollercoaster with this one. This movie explores many topics untouched - that's a good thing. Beautiful location, I had no idea where Delaware Shore was till i did more research but it just added more depth to the film. In all I think it's a great film to catch at the cinemas or on dvd.

Surprisingly Good

January 1, 2019
I didn't know what to expect after watching the trailer but I was impressed once I had seen it on the big screen. The team did a great job with the cinematography, music and the script. I usually find it hard to sit through a movie longer then seventy minutes but this is one of those films I could sit through without getting antsy. This is a film about your inner-self, feelings, emotions and survival. Thanks for making this.

Enjoyable

I stumbled on this movie as I had nothing better to do yesterday. It was enjoyable enough and thought provoking in places, especially the descriptions of the Holocaust.

Raghav Peri may love cinema, but 'Delaware Shore' shows that as a director he is wet behind the ears. A Holocaust film, the script poorly uses the theme. A survivor of the camps, fodder for Nazi troops at the front, sensitive Agnes emerges from the war and death camps a living corpse without a soul. A hollow woman, who survives by using her body and animal instinct. She abandons her daughter, who, in turn, leaves her fraternal twins on her mother's doorstep in Slaughter Beach, Delaware. The name of the place is quite suggestive but Peri makes little of it. A Spartan lass Agnes bring her grandchildren up without much affection; she's enveloped herself in hardness that hardly betrays a quality of affection. She drinks, lives on the public pence, but she owns a well appointed cottage on the ocean's edge. She throws her grandson out because he's gay; her granddaughter, too, for not keeping her knickers up, when she becomes pregnant. And we see flashbacks: a sensitive young Agnes who writes poetry and basks in her father's love and protection until the Germans arrest them. She bears a daughter she gives up with disgust, Who is the father> Is it the black man who befriends her in Slaughter and whose house becomes hers. But the twins are Caucasian. Agnes drinks, carries a gun and tries to fade into the woodwork, unknown. And yet she hounded by ghosts: a Jew who accuses her for betraying her people; a German officer who reclaims her? She shots the first, knifs the second. Are they real or manifestations of her troubled, disturbed conscience? And her black lover was he the body found in the shoals? Agnes never ages but in the end when by Peri's count she should be at least 90. The grandchildren learn of Agnes' internment from another Holocaust survivor in senior living. And Agnes' whimsical attempt at drowning herself remains unconvincing. The film is a muddle. We were two in the cinema; when the light went up, I was alone.
