Quotes

[first lines]
Nancy: It's like walking on fake ground upside down, choking.
Carol: Oh, is that what you think love feels like?
Nancy: No. Death is like sucking pure oxygen.
Carol: And life?
Nancy: It's like being trapped inside the wrong house looking for a way out.
Carol: Well, how do you know you'll be able to breathe once you die?
Nancy: Because I'll be outside my body. I'll be floating and free.
Carol: How do you know? How do you know it won't be worse?
Nancy: I know it will be better than this.

A destructive pact
10 May 2009 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It's hard to decide whether this is a failure or not. I finally came to the conclusion that it's not.

Nancy has been sexually abused as a child. She lives in a completely cold and dead marriage. She cuts herself. Then, she gets into this pact with a stranger on the net. What follows is a carousel of destruction. But is it really destruction? It's a fantastic acting performance here by Maria Bello, Rufus Sewell and Jason Patric. It's like a documentary with pale colors, no sign of hope, no sign of healing. It's a movie about existentialism, but it balances on a thin line close the ridiculous. But director Johan Renck brings it all home and you can only feel the pain. Or is that really what you're supposed to feel?
