Sweet Child of Mine: Basinger Buoys Bizarre Psycho Drama
Danish director Anders Morgenthaler (Princess, 2006) returns with The 11th Hour, a strange, psychological drama with the kind of art-house sensibilities that could easily be mistaken for Eurotrash. A German-Danish co-production starring American actress Kim Basinger, there’s more bizarre elements on display than the simplistic yet frustratingly equivocal title can rightly handle.
Slight otherworldly elements and one woman’s insane quest for motherhood offer up an uneasy narrative many will either dismiss outright or react unkindly towards, at least as displayed in this consistently repellant universe. And yet, despite some distractions and flaws, Morgenthaler offers a unique portrait of hysterical motherhood. Though its heroine remains woefully superficial, defined completely by her consuming desire, Basinger is arresting in a film that seems oblivious to all elements audiences hold dear in these unnerving psychological studies.
