In the past few years, I have become increasingly aware of the phenomenon of 'post-modernism' - a term which, by definition, implies a kind of deconstruction of ideas, and thus a rejection of traditional methods of storytelling. It is precisely this point in the film-making world that 'The Aftermath' is a fitting testament to. The film is a drama in the classic sense, but does not shy away from the question of what is and is not real - and what exactly is the 'real' world. The film itself is the story of a family, living in post-war Britain. It takes place in an estate, where children are being educated in a school that is a virtual 'colony'. The father is an unhappy and cold man, who believes that the country is on the verge of destruction, and that the only way to save it is to have another war. The family is led by their eccentric but intelligent mother, who, like many parents, is extremely patriotic and has the sort of upbringing that leads one to feel that they are at the end of the line. There is a secretarial assistant who is secretly a Nazi sympathiser, and there are other staff members who are seemingly made up of various elements of the Jewish community, and the child's therapist. When the father goes back to his war, they are torn between the love that their mother has for the country that has once been their home, and the more obsessive loyalty of the father to the past that is threatening to destroy their future. It is at this point that the film is at its best. The character of John, played by Hugh Jackman, is played with such an uncanny brilliance that you can only see him as one of the many men and women that the father is coming to see as the true enemy of the country. As the film progresses, we discover that his mother is not just a war-time fanatic, but is a major contributor to the war effort, and is secretly working for the Nazis. There is so much that is revealed about her that it is impossible to know what exactly to make of it, but the film has a way of showing you what it is that you are seeing. The performances are superb, and the direction is absolutely perfect. The direction is by the legendary Peter Yates, who has directed all kinds of films over the years, from 'Casablanca' and 'A Clockwork Orange' to 'Titanic', 'Gone With the Wind' and 'The English Patient'. He is one of the most talented directors working today, and his use of long takes, long takes that are not shown in a typical Hollywood fashion, and a dense composition of images is just a bonus to the overall effect. 'The Aftermath' is an intelligent and very engaging film, and one that is an absolute must for any serious movie-goer. It has a great deal of political tension, and a real sense of dread and despair. But the most important element of the film is its well-written script. The story is absolutely engrossing, and you will want to be
