Storyline

Successful architect Robert has a one-night stand with a mysterious lady in red. The next day they meet again, but Carolin is now a corporate lawyer working on a major contract for Robert and strangely, she seems to have no memory of the previous night. Robert soon finds himself sucked into the morbid world of Carolin and her family's dark secrets, where sex and death are never far removed, and tragedy seems the only outcome of this decaying bourgeois family.

Looks nice, but predictable and unrealistic
5 August 2007 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Ah, it had to happen soon or later - my first dud at Melbourne International Film Festival. I could have walked out of this film at any time after five minutes or so, but with nice visuals it was tolerable. A man is engaged to marry but falls for another woman, who has a personality disorder. It starts off with all the psychology of a Hitchcock thriller but ends up being way too contrived. I was able to anticipate all the surprises.

While the film's visuals were excellent and had a reasonable cast, there were serious problems:

* none of the characters had any chemistry and it was impossible to suspend disbelief

* characters were caricatured

* the screenplay was very weak, like a run-of-the-mill Hollywood movie

* all the 'surprises' were predictable well in advance due to obvious setups

* an ending that was truly bad, bad, bad (and also predictable)

There were lots of smaller complaints, like gratuitous sex that did nothing to drive the narrative, or the film's length overstaying it's welcome (it had the "but wait, there's more" syndrome), and probably others that I've forgotten already. My opinion on this one was pretty much agreed upon by the others I sat with, all serious film-goers.
