Storyline

Emulsion is a Psychological Noir about a man looking for his missing wife, set on the south coast of England. When ISABELLA mysteriously disappears from a car park her husband, RONNY, becomes obsessed with finding her. In an attempt to stay close to her he even takes a job at the very same car park. It becomes his life. We join the story a year after the key events. Ronny lives alone in a dirty old apartment. He watches the same film on a projector every night. This is a nostalgic reel of 16mm film; memories of Isabella. Every morning, Ronny packs his bags to move on with his life, but he always slams on the brakes as he approaches a picturesque bridge on the edge of town, where he had proposed to Isabella. Everyday he returns to the car park to continue his quest. Each night Ronny stands in the very spot Isabella went missing from and tries to retrace his own movements and recap on any clues. One night, a prostitute is attacked in the car park and bundled into the boot of a car. ... Written by White Lantern Film

A suspenseful drama grips you till the end
15 July 2014 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I very recently watched this film & was really intrigued by the storyline. When I first heard about this film, I brushed it off, thinking it was going to be like another version of the movie "Wicker Park": a man frantically & nearly obsessively searching for the missing woman whom he's desperately in love with. How wrong I was.

This film contains a well-balanced mixture of suspense, drama, raw innocence, & dark grit. The storyline gripped me all the way until the very end, with plenty of plot twists & that just- when-you-think-you've-figured-it-out edginess. Actor Sam Heughan really steals the spotlight with his incredible portrayal of a vulnerable man on the brink of self-destruction & just barely holding onto his last shreds of composure, all while trying to solve the bizarre & mysterious disappearance of the woman he loves.

I must admit the storyline starts off a little too slow in the beginning, but gradually the story picks up its pace & really captivates your attention till the very end. It's like a cat & mouse game, trying to gather clues, which become pieces to an elaborate puzzle. This film offers a good dose of secrets, espionage, chases, raw emotions, & action.

To sum up this film in one sentence: IT'S THE CLOTHES THAT MAKE THE MAN.
