Storyline

The elementary school teacher Anna Marchant lives with her boyfriend Bryce in a nice apartment and every now and then she meets her best friends Francine and Nina to drink and talk. When Anna is crossing a bridge to meet Bryce, she sees an infamous serial-killer killing a woman. Anna runs but she is attacked by the killer and she falls off the bridge and hits her head. Anna stays in coma for a week and when she awakes, she learns that she has brain damage followed by Prosopagnosia, a disorder of face perception where the ability to recognize faces is impaired, while the ability to recognize other objects may be relatively intact. The police detective Sam Kerrest unsuccessfully tries to force Anna to remember the face of the serial-killer. Now the serial-killer knows that Anna has seen his face, but she is incapable of even recognizing Bryce and her close friends. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Milla once again proves that she is one of the best actresses working today.
9 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After viewing the trailer for this virtually unknown thriller I got excited for two reasons, firstly it stars Milla Jovovich who is exceptional in everything and also because the story looked extremely original, and after viewing, it doesn't disappoint. The story is very different to the usual thriller, a serial killer is stalking women and Milla witnesses one of the murders, the murderer chases her and throws her over a bridge where she hits her head which causes her to get face blindness, which in turn prevents her from identifying the killer and also puts a severe strain on her personal and work life. The subsequent man hunt for the killer is a cracking thrill ride which will keep you on your toes for the entire duration.

This movie boasts a knockout performance by Milla Jovovich, she is so much more than an action star zombie killer, she has a terrific range and is able to make any character believable, she is just amazing in everything I see her in, I do hope she continues to land complex roles like this one because she is so great and infinitely watchable.

The story at times goes off track, towards the end it starts to bring in a romance element which is unnecessary but it's only a minor annoyance, the rest of the movie being great makes up for it. The supporting cast are also good, Australia's own Julian McMahon does the tough cop act perfectly, and Marianne Fairhfull does her cool voice thing very well. The use of different actors playing the same characters was definitely a smart move for this movie, it adds a lot to the whole face blindness element, the director could have been cheap and used cgi to augment people's faces but he doesn't and it's better that way.

Face Blindness is a disease I have never heard of before, I don't know If it's even a real disease but my god it sounds scary, it would truly be a life ruining debilitation. So if you love Milla Jovovich, love thrillers or just after something highly original, check this out. Enjoy.
