Dark Film Fascinates
24 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A powerful film which explores the dangers inherent in adultery and untreated mental illness. The director is obviously gifted and creates a vivid atmosphere of tension and fear. The cast is outstanding and each member gives a superb performance. The script is intelligent while at the same time offering a horrific glimpse into an insane night. As the story progresses, it is impossible not to think that appropriate mental health interventions should have been taken at some point. Such an effort might well have prevented much of the suffering depicted. However, this film serves to impress upon the public that such treatment should be sought but it fails in not demonstrating the availability of the required help. The theme of adultery could successfully be dealt with quite effectively through couple's counseling and the establishment of more effective lines of communication between partners. Once again, the film doesn't offer any possible solutions but it does do well to point out the tragic consequences of not confronting the issues involved.
