Understated, haunting, excellent
2 December 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I saw Naboer on French TV with French subtitles, and joined the movie after it had started, but was immediately captivated by the low-key approach to John's character, the almost abstract quality of the set with its insistence on corridors and scenes glimpsed through doorways, and the eerie music, which reminded me a little of the haunting motif of "Basic Instinct". All of this screamed that it was a psychological thriller, that something horrible was going to happen - and this is before I had picked up the threads of the story. Comparisons with David Lynch happily never occurred to me, as I find his work pretentious, and this film felt honest. I can imagine that the dialogue may not have appealed to an American viewer, especially via subtitles, but its understatement was to my mind well judged and the repeating motifs reinforcing the idea of isolation and alienation. The concluding scene brought together all the threads of mystery and wove them into a final image that I shall never forget. In all, I thought it was excellent.
