Could have used a bit more light.
30 December 2009 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Cuckoo has a very talented cast, which all equip themselves well for the three lead roles. Notably Laura Fraser provides a dimensional character, who has already lost her mother and may now be losing her mind. I would say the genre aimed for here is creepy thriller, and lots of the film is lit with energy saving lightbulbs in my opinion (a good thing, but not here). I expect films with this type of theme to be underlit, but didn't like the lighting here at all. The film is well shot, and the score is fantastic. There is an interesting plot, but the storyline isn't quite tight enough. Good atmosphere and worth a look with appropriate expectations
