The question you will no doubt ask yourself when you see the film is what the hell is going on here? It is never clear but that may be the point. This is what we French call an auteur film and if you like those films of the Nouvelle Vague you will may be enjoy this madness. There is a style of the director here that I do not see in other films and I like that even when the film leaves me lose. Steven Mackintosh is such a good actor it's good to see him doing something good for once instead of that rubbish I see him in on TV so times. He has a medium size part to play but he steals the showing. Maryanne Faithful is mysterious but I never know what she was doing in the story but is good. I want to ask the director many questions but I like his film. Why is this not on general release? Go see this if you have the chance. If you like Mulholand Dr you will like this. It is reminds me of David Lynch but less gorie.
