A great black comedy, in the tradition of Fargo.
27 September 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is one of the best movies I have seen in the past three years or so. It was screened on the Amsterdam fantastic film festival of 2006 where it won the Silver Scream Award (best movie of the festival), an award given by the audience. Ordinary Man is a black comedy, about a man, George, who lives an ordinary life with his wife and daughter, who for unclear reasons kidnaps a woman and keeps her in the trunk of his car. Meanwhile he has trouble at home with his wife who is growing more distant from him every day, and who is having an affair. When also the cops get involved in the search for the disappeared woman, George's problems are only getting bigger.

Ordinary Man is a great movie, in the tradition of Fargo. If you like black humor, this is a must-see. I don't understand why the rating on IMDb is so low. The Audience of the AFFF 2006 rated the movie an average 8,39 still to low in my opinion.
