Psychodrama Millennium Style
6 August 2004 | by (Arizona) – See all my reviews

What happens when traditional "noir" enters the new millennium? Answer: this stylish but essentially empty account of a mildly unhappy, mildly neurotic married couple trying to find their way out of contemporary ennui. One scene dissolves painlessly into another as we wait to see whether any of the threads implying conflict lead to catharsis, as on and on it drifts. I kept thinking Walter Mitty as Sam Spade.

If the viewer for one reason or another finds any of the characters in this seemingly endless portrayal interesting, there may be a redeeming element to the process of watching it through to the end. I found no such reason.

Definitely an example of style over substance.
