Rampling’s the best thing about it
‘The Eye of the Storm’ has Geoffrey Rush and Judy Davis returning from overseas to visit their ailing mother (unprobably played by Charlotte Rampling) who lives in a big house where the staff are there for her entertainment as much as to care for her. I’ve mixed feelings about this; I like a good drama, but some parts of it are decidedly iffy (for instance, a flashback featuring Rampling and Davis has the latter looking older than the woman playing her mother!) Rush probably over-eggs the pudding in his role as an old thesp, but Davis is good as the dissatisfied wife of a French prince (? I thought they didn’t have those anymore). Rampling is superb: I don’t usually rate her as an actress – her performances are almost always so studied she can never convince me she’s not acting – but here she really sinks her teeth into the role of an old woman who knows her children’s main interest in her is when she’s going to die.
