Stumbles into an incoherent confusing mess
22 June 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

One of two Australian made films I saw at the Sydney Film Festival, both of which were set in Europe.

Ewan Leslie was very good in the lead role as was Marton Csokas in a minor role late in the film, but the same can not be said for the actress who played the main characters mother. She seemed very poorly cast (age wise) and did not give a very consistent performance, as scenes with her felt very uneven.

The film was shot well and in places not often seen in predominately English language films and the first half really set up the mystery and thriller like aspect, but it was let down badly by a very poor last third as it fell into an incoherent confusing mess, but maybe that was intentional as the character fell into that cycle himself.

It was just very meh.
