Storyline

Julius Morlang is a successful art photographer who has moved on after the tragic suicide of his first wife, Ellen. He has found a new muse and lover in Ann, a younger version of Ellen. With the expected success of his new exhibition a near certainty, life for Morlang seems almost perfect - for now. But the past still haunts him. The voice of his dead wife appears on his answering machine - someone sends him her funeral announcement. Paranoia grows, and he is not sure whom he can trust. What is real and is imagined - and can you trust the one you love? Written by Aubrey Wiseman <Aubreys@hotmail.com>

Death wish
15 November 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

"Morlang" is a movie that has not been seen in this country except in film festivals. It deserves a look. Director Tjebbo Penning, having also collaborated in the adaptation shows he has a sense of style in the way he has layered this picture.

Basically, it's the story of a painter, whose work was much admired, but is currently going through a crisis caused by his past coming to haunt him. Julius Morlang is a man who loved Ellen, his first wife. When she gets sick, Morlang is supportive until he realizes Ellen has not been a model wife at all. Her betrayal triggers a set of events that will actually bring chaos to his life with Ann, the much younger woman he has married after the death of Ellen.

Paul Freeman, an actor who has worked in television extensively, is the troubled painter. We watch him at various points of the Morlang's life and Mr. Freeman does an excellent work with his role. Equally effective are Diana Kent, who plays Ellen, and Susan Lynch, as the younger Ann.

The film tend to involve the viewer because it's never clear from the beginning how the character of Morlang is unraveling before our eyes, or what provoked it.
