Half way into his mystery, Joseph has his most explosive vision, in a twist that turns on its ear our notions of conventional narrative cinema. Written by
I watched this movie on Fantaspoa/2009. I didn't have high expectancy on it because of the synopsis. But the truth is, you can't let people know why it is a great movie without giving spoilers.
This movie is a good-humored police mystery, with a touch of philosophy. Or, it's a philosophical movie where the questions are posed in a fun police mystery. Although it can be seen as a plain comedy, I consider the implied questions very relevant. The relationship it establishes with the audience is neither original nor unique, but it is used for many purposes and it is very successful on that. This film is worth watching. In the beginning it looks pretty average, no big deal, but the story reveals some things bit by bit, until Joseph has his great revelation. Then, the movie gets all its entertainment, as is gets funny, philosophical, thrilling, mysterious and even with action.
