The Cement Garden. Andrew Birkin min. Review Our Score. Ian McEwan's dark, psychologically complex novels have not always worked well as cinema, but this is an exception, largely owing to some outstanding acting and a script from director Andrew Birkin that sticks closely to its source material.

Ian McEwan is a British author who specializes in twisted stories of deviate and devious secrets. His "The Comfort of Strangers," made into a movie by Paul Schrader , was about honeymooners in Venice who fall into the sadomasochistic clutches of two diabolical exiles, with dire consequences. Now comes the film of his "The Cement Garden," equally perverse, but in a completely different way. The movie takes place mostly inside and outside a barren concrete-walled house on the outskirts of an English town. It seems to be situated on the banks of the town dump. In this house live a vile, coughing father; a sweet, inoffensive mother; and four children. One day the father takes offense at the weeds in his choked back garden, and determines to pave the entire area with cement.
The " Outlander " star brings his character into the most dangerous situation yet: the world of online dating. Watch the video. Title: The Cement Garden
His only emotional outlet from his oppressive father is a growing curiosity about his sexuality which includes masturbation, pornography and fantasies about his older sister, Julie. With Jack and Julie acting as mother and father, their unchecked sexual curiosity develops into incest, which is ultimately exposed. This film is well written, directed and acted. Although with it shows that deviant sexual behavior culminates in the self-destruction, the fact that this film contains objectionable language, nudity in scenes of intercourse and masturbation and a gruesome story, it is not recommended but for moral individuals. Home Reviews. None Light Moderate Heavy Language. Although an indictment on both, this well-written, -directed and -acted piece contains graphic portraits of characters with no spiritual guidance, lots of nudity, both naturalistic and in scenes of intercourse and masturbation, foul language and a gruesome storyline and cannot be recommended.
