“This is not a romance film. This is not a film about romantics. This is simply a film about beginnings and endings.”
The film centres on the year long relationship between Daniel and Eve, but as the blurb states, it is not a film about romance. Rather, it’s a film about relationships.
Closure is told in a reverse narrative, starting at the end of their relationship and finishing with the beginning of it. I was intrigued to see how this would play out and if it would be confusing, or difficult to follow. I found it worked extremely well and it was a really refreshing way to view a film and a relationship for that matter….a real, relatable relationship, (alliteration eh?) between two people, not a sugared up Hollywood version with unnecessary excessive drama.
As I said before, this film is about relationships, but I don’t just mean the relationship between Daniel and Eve. The relationship between the three friends; Daniel, Golden and Michael was possibly my favourite thing about the film, maybe because it reflected the dynamic I have with a few of my own friends. The friendship between Golden and Michael was a joy to watch, as it was pretty much the embodiment of Scottish wit and humour, and I found myself wishing I knew them just so I could go out and have a drink and a banter with them. Brilliant stuff. Also, There are a lot of lovely location shots in the film that actually manage to make Dundee look pretty nice, (shock, horror).
If you live in Dundee and you have the chance, definitely go and see this film. I think there are already plans for a third screening so i’ll post about that once it’s official.

Dextromethorphan (DXM, a cough suppressant that has PCP-like effects at high doses)
Ketamine (an anesthetic used mostly by veterinarians that also has PCP-like effects)
Combining or using drugs with MDMA, including marijuana and alcohol is dangerous and will put users at higher physical risk.
In a study using monkeys, exposure to Ecstasy for four days caused brain damage to serotonin nerve terminals that could still be seen up to seven years later, providing evidence that people who take Ecstasy may be risking permanent brain damage.
Researches believe the brain damage occurs because the drug, like methamphetamine, causes a degeneration of neurons containing the neurotransmitter dopamine. Damage to these neurons causes the motor disturbances seen in Parkinson’s disease, beginning with a lack of coordination and uncontrollable tremors, which can progress to a form of paralysis.
