Intriguing
4 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The acting is terrific - Marie (Jessica Barden) reminds me of a young Christina Ricci - has that haunted look and Filthy (Tony Curran) is great as the bereaved father. This film mixes emotions of loss, grief, with the (seemingly) supernatural as the actors (and actresses) work through their grief at the loss of a little boy - for no apparent reason.

In the mix is a strained relationship with the mother (read Prozac Nation review), some weird bunnies (you'll swear they are the reincarnated dead boy) with various sightings of the dead and communications with the spirit world. All in all a very interesting movie - beautifully shot in a brooding atmosphere - which held my interest the entire way. This film goes to show that you do not have to spend millions of dollars/pounds on famous actors and actresses to produce an excellent movie. But it does take good writing, an interesting plot, good cinematography, and good acting. This movie has all those elements. I liked the very touching ending with the bereaved father.

Certainly worth your while (unless you are a Bruce Willis fan - then skip it.) DonB
