Storyline

On January 23, 2002, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is to fly from Karachi to Dubai with his pregnant wife, Mariane, also a reporter. On the day before, with great care, he has arranged an interview in a café with an Islamic fundamentalist cleric. When Danny doesn't return, Mariane initiates a search. Pakistani police, American embassy personnel, and the FBI examine witnesses, phone records, e-mails, and hard drives. Who has him? Where is he? There's also the why: because of U.S. abuse of prisoners at Guantanamo, because of a history of Journal cooperation with the CIA, because Pearl is a Jew? Through it all, Mariane is clearheaded, direct, and determined. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Angelina's Performance Is Terrific, But She Rarely Appears!
23 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the controversy amongst IMDb users concerning Academy Award Winner Angelina Jolie's ability to play a French woman of Afro-Cuban and Dutch ancestry, the truth is that she does a tremendous job despite her minimal screen time. In some of the stills from the film, her skin almost does appear darkened (despite all reports that it was not), but in the actual film, she is as light as ever. There is no visible difference in her skin's color or complexion and her casting should not be the reason for which this film gets recognized. Instead, it should be recognized for the terrific performances all around and Michael Winterbottom's genius direction. Also, I'm a sucker for queasy camera work. The film itself is merely decent as it becomes a bit boring during all the commotion of searching for Danny Pearl, but the performances truly are something to see. Dan Futterman's performance is as amazing as Jolie's, but he probably has about less than ten lines of dialogue throughout the film, despite the fact that the film and all the other characters revolve completely around him (he's even first billed in the end credits). Futterman's performance shows skill and his chemistry with Angelina Jolie is beautiful, but it is Jolie and Irrfan Khan who will hopefully get lucky come January's Academy Award nominations (or even February's wins). All the hustle and bustle leads up to the tour-de-force performance of Jolie as Pearl in the sparse climax scene. Her reaction brought me to tears (a rarity in the films I watch, and I watch films constantly). It is finally time that audiences will remember how talented she really is, despite being overshadowed by her publicity and her performances in films like "Alexander." I hope her performance here brings her a second Oscar nomination and (pardon my bias) a second win. The only demerits in the film are the boredom brought on by the search when, in my own humble opinion, scenes of Danny's friends and family (past and present) would have made the ending more heart-wrenching, the only word to truly describe the real-life tragedy. Overall, a well-made film that anyone should check out.
