Storyline

"Lapse" is a story about the human condition of blinding ourselves to our flaws and only seeing what we want to see. Renee wakes up one morning in the middle of the desert with blood on her hands. She cannot remember why she is there, how she got there or with whom she came. Her quest to uncover forgotten events leads her on a journey of discovery where reality and memory collide and people are not what they seem. "Lapse", a surreal drama influenced by films like "Memento" and "21 Grams" and filmmakers like David Lynch, forces audiences to actively participate in order to work out plot intricacies. A second viewing reveals the "other" point of view - or rather - "other" point of truth. "Lapse" is an experimental narrative that breaks with standard rules in terms of plot, character, look, editing and structure. It pushes the envelope and explores a more risqué form of storytelling - both refreshing and original, yet possibly disconcerting and uncomfortable too. It really depends upon ...

A well scripted and enjoyable film, that allows for multiple interpretations and provokes thought well after the credits
22 August 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I attended the pre-release and was surprised to find a movie with such a well developed script, complex plot, and thought provoking under tones. The set location was well chosen, and added to the sense of isolation while also removing distractions and allowing the viewer to focus on the story. The story itself provided well scripted ambiguity, thus allowing for multiple interpretations, but with the ending bringing it all together in a clear manner, but without being cliché.

The characters were portrayed well, with distinct personalities that changed slightly at times (drug induced hallucinations, or distorted perceptions of the lead character - you decide!). The confusion of the lead character was clearly communicated to the viewer without overstatement and the main under tone of her having to come to terms with her own personality flaws was subtle but clear. This is a movie that keeps you contemplating numerous subjects well after the final credits.

I truly hope a wide audience see and enjoy the film as much as I did. Congratulations Marianne on a fine project!
