Review of Relic
Due to Edna’s behavior as she keeps wandering around the area Kay decided to put her in an old age home. She is not able to look after herself and her mother. Her granddaughter doesn’t seem to be happy with this idea but Kay is not sure what to do either. She always notices Edna sleepwalking or wandering around the area without any reason. The old lady is suffering from dementia and her daughter and granddaughter always see her forgetting about everything. She once gifted her granddaughter a ring but doesn’t remember anything.
On the other side grandmother, James is also suffering from Alzheimer and he is taking a trip to see her. The story portrays the diseases very well and how elderly people behave in this scène. The nightmares and other scenes where the grandmother is tearing the photos and eating them are very important and heart touching scenes. The film is produced by Jake Gyllenhaal production company Nine Stories and produced by The Russo Brothers’ firm AGBO. The film is a little frightening but it deserves some recognition from the audience.
