Awfully Boring and Absurd
13 February 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The addicted porno actor and producer Mark (Rupert Graves) is brought against his will from London to the rehab clinic Vista Clara run by the psychologists Bill (Colm Feore) and his wife Kelly (Andy MacDowell). Mark is addicted in drugs, booze and sex, and joins a few other junkies; when the treatment requires the presence of their families, the clinic invites Mark's wife Jane (Jennifer Tilly) while Mark sends a private invitation to his girlfriend Pamela (Donna D'Errico). The triangle of lovers brings friction between the women while Bill and Kelly have also problems in their relationship. After a fire, the truth about love and commitment is disclosed in Vista Clara.

"Intervention" is an awfully boring film that wastes the talented performances of a brilliant cast with an absurd screenplay. The premise that an adult man can be forced to travel from London to another country, be interned in a rehabilitation clinic and face his wife is so ridiculous that it is impressive that there are viewers that enjoyed this flick. I have no basis in psychological treatment to analyze the treatment they are submitted that also seems to be absurd for a layman like me. The fire situation and the conclusion are also pathetic. My vote is two.

Title (Brazil): "Fora de Controle" ("Out of Control")
