Lee Sun Gyun,
"Good plot/storyline, but actors lack verisimilitude in their roles!"
The movie "Fetish" (the original Korean title release) or "Make Yourself At Home" (the U.S. title release) is a very compelling and intriguing movie with a plot that could have shown so much more promise and better potential as a suspenseful thriller. Sadly, many of the main actors simply fail to emotionally deliver believability in their assigned roles. In fact, based on the acting depth and believability of the main characters in this film, situations as agonizing and intense as infidelity, sudden death, accidental murder, and attempted suicide, (to list just a few), should be portrayed with much more verisimilitude, yet appear to not truly register and sink in from a actual human emotional level and thus the acting is subpar at best throughout the entire movie. I could give the movie more than 5 out of 10 stars for a well-written plot and storyline, however the acting ability was simply too mediocre to award more than 5 stars.
