ATONEMENT, moved, but dislike the ending to the lovers~

Tonight, my bf and I went to the Arts Centre to watch the new film Atonement.
It’s really wonderful, although the story is not that complicated. The way of filming, in which the story is telling is a bit strange; because sometimes the consequences come firstly, then followed by the reasons- just same as the way in our academic writing.
The main story happened in WWII, but there are not so many scenes about the war. But the director uses some documentary scenes of the war, which have shown the sorrow and death that wars bring to human beings.
From my one viewsight, I think there are four aspects about life shown in the film. One is of course about love; one is about people’s understanding or reaction towards sex during the war period; also another one is about the inner development of teenagers, esp for girls; while the last one is about guilt and regret in people’s hearts.
Today, I found a very funny thing that almost 90% of the audience were senior people. And at the end, most of them felt sad about the ending, or maybe about sth that deeply in their hearts.
It’s quite late anyway, I’ll keep on talking my opinion tomorrow after I do some reading about others’ comments. I may remember some points that I cannot get in such a sleepy condition.

  1. “Today, I found a very funny thing that almost 90% of the audience were senior people.”
    That’s pretty typical for a Warwick Arts Centre audience.

  2. Oh, got it.. But is that the only point? Cause I also think about that only because they are seniors, they can understand well about the meaning of the word “atonement”.
