Ghostly appearances drive a man to his death
2 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The thriller Dominique is available for free. It has a decent cast, with Jean Simmons and Cliff Robertson heading up the show.

Most movies have some virtues such that we sit through them to the end and enjoy them, despite their faults. In this case, I liked the mansion that was the main location. I very much liked the color hues and dark photography that gave its hallways and rooms a foreboding air at night. Certain other sights, appearances, and circumstances were also handled in rather chilling and mysterious ways.

Subdued pacing and absence of music at times contributed to the atmosphere, and so did a certain amount of repetition. However, these became borderline negatives too when they replaced creative elements in the plot that were simply absent.

The story itself was just barely passable. It's rather familiar. That reduces both the thrill aspect and the mystery. It placed a heavy burden on the actors to carry the movie. They just about did it. There's no deep theme or message to a movie like this.

Good supporting actors such as Flora Robson and Jack Warner were pretty much wasted. Robertson did quite a good job combining flashes of rational inquiry into what may have been haunting him with other flashes of irrational fears. He had to do a balancing act to sell the story, and he succeeded. Actor Simon Ward also did a fine job in his substantial role.
