+ve : Meaningful .
-ve : Slow.
My view in detail :
The sense of an ending is movie adaptation of a book by the same name.This movie is directed by Ritesh Batra,the same director who directed The Lunchbox.
The sense of an ending follows the life of Tony Webster,a retired divorcee in his late sixties.His best friend is his ex-wife,with whom he confides in.He still wonders why she left him.
His otherwise mundane boring life,which oscillates between his shop and home,turns interesting and adds energy to him,when he gets a correspondence from his first love.This correspondence drives new energy into him,at the same he finds himself for one of his friends suicide.
His days are spend talking about her,reminiscing old memories.It is always said that,love brings out the young mischief in you.It is so true in Tony’s case,especially where he stalks Veronica.The movie has funny elements in the second half.I especially liked the scene where Tony and his childhood friends are surfing one of the social media’s on the internet.
The sense of an ending keeps moving back between Tony’s younger days and the current day.It has a lot of philosophy to it,which might make it boring to watch.Tony is a man,like many of us,who likes nostalgia.
I liked the picturesque portrayal of London.
The movie ends with Tony realizing that he should focus on his present life and that he is happy to be where he is.
The sense of ending,is philosophical.Watch it on a day when you are in a sullen mood.
