Topic: The Claim


  
  The Claim : film review
The novel is not a tragedy because of random events; instead, the tragedy comes from the Henchard/Dillon character having sold his wife and daughter years before, and the consequences that come about when they return into his life.
Without giving too much away, The Claim manages to remove all the interesting aspects of the novel's characters, and introduces a twist halfway through which effectively makes the rest of the film utterly pointless, as well as making the ending bathetic.
I don't think that The Claim is a bad film per se; it's nicely made, interestingly set and shot, and reasonably intelligent.

  The Nature of the Claim
If a miracle claim was recorded in the Bible, he routinely accepted it; if a miracle claim was recorded in nonbiblical literature, he either rejected it or didn't consider it important enough even to "check into." Yet he criticized me for dismissing miraculous claims on the grounds that miracles don't happen.
So we have two very extraordinary claims that both have their roots in holy books considered by their respective adherents to be the divine word of God or Allah, yet neither religion considers the other's miracle claim to be historical fact.
In the case of the Qur'anic claim, I have noted that it is an event that could have happened without the widespread attention that the midday darkness would have necessarily received, because it could have been an event that happened at night when many people were inside their homes and possibly even sleeping.

 The Legal Basis of the Claim for Slavery Reparations - Human Rights Magazine, Spring 2000
The New Zealand case is an example of a claim by the descendants of the original victims; they suffer from the loss of their ancestral land and the dislocation of their social fabric.

The claim that after the collapse of the Empire the Fundamental Laws no longer applied only makes sense if one also considers that the dynasty ceased to exist entirely, that it had lost all its titles and claims and its members reverted to the status of commoners.
The situation in 1946 when the Dynasty was in exile and the Bagrations were claiming the throne of the state over which their ancestors had once ruled was surely one such situation.

 The Claim of the Qur'an
Here, it must be appreciated that the Bible may be said to have claimed for itself the status of Divine revelation only if the term ‘Holy Scriptures’ as used by Paul referred to the books of the Bible.
If, the followers of the book, then, say that it is of Divine origin, it will be but their witnessing to the truth of the claim already made by the book or by the individual who had come with it.
But if that claim itself is not there, any witnessing to that claim is obviously irrelevant.

 THE CLAIM
The Claim is the second film Winterbottom has directed from a script based on one of Hardy’s novels (the other was the stellar Jude, from “Jude the Obscure”).
The Claim certainly looks great — from the realistic sets and props, to Alwin H. Kuchler’s sound photography of the snow, wind, trees and mountains — although it’s not as quite as chilly and bleak as A Time for Drunken Horses, or as pretty as Snow Falling on Cedars.
Interestingly, The Claim was originally called Kingdom Come but had to change its name because of — hold on to your hats — a Whoopi Goldberg film bearing the same name.
