Yes 2005


YES is the story of a passionate love affair between an American woman and a Middle-Eastern man in which they confront some of the greatest conflicts of our generation - religious, political and sexual. Sam Neill plays the betrayed and betraying politician husband and Shirley Henderson a philosophical cleaner who witnesses the trail of dirt and heartbreak the lovers leave behind them, as they embark on a journey that takes them from London and Belfast to Beirut and Havana.

Yes Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/5/2007)

This is a lovely poetic film about love and lust in a world that is falling apart. Joan Allen stars as She who falls in love with He (Simon Abkarian) despite the fact she is married to Anthony (Sam Neill). The film is spoken in rhyme, but never seems that it is trying too hard, instead it comes off like modern...

Yes Movie Review by Ezra (2/13/2007)

Love it or hate it, there has never been a film quite like this. For those who don't know, the dialogue is entirely in rhyming iambic pentameter.

Yes Movie Review by Kristina (6/14/2006)

Adore this. Certainly a bit odd (the characters speak in rhymes) but hey at least it's not a musical. An examination of love, americanisms in contrast with other cultures, and contemporary suburban life. Joan Allen's performance is breathtaking. Great music, beautifully shot. Many layers to this film.

Yes Movie Review by Lance (6/24/2005)

New in the art houses: Sally Potter's "Yes". No car wrecks. No super heroes. Just an damn socially, sexually, and emotionally conscious film. Don't you hate when they sneak something like that into your movies? Joan Allen is quickly becoming the female Jude Law, turning up in every movie ever made, but she is so talented,...

Yes Movie Review by Elizabeth (6/24/2005)

Sally Potter does not make mundane movies, and YES is no exception. The script written entirely in iambic pentameter, YES observes the adulterous love affair between an unhappily married Irish-American, She (Joan Allen) and He (Simon Abkarian), a Lebanese doctor now working as a waiter in London. YES wants to present a...
