Storyline

A young, female filmmaker looks through her camera for an object to film. She wants to film the private live of an ordinary person and starts following Guy. He is very irritated about this girl following him, always looking through her camera, never showing herself. She does not even say her name but follows him even home to his bedroom. He tries to get rid of her but she does not stop. After a while he gets used to the camera and the girl behind it and tries to get involved with her. First she protects herself with her camera but cannot keep the barrier up. When their feelings and Guy's actions become too confusing for them Guy disappears mysteriously. However, he comes back; with a camera. Written by Gerhard Windecker <g.wind@mbox300.swipnet.se>

Its not worth the price of a ticket
14 September 1998 | by Luis F. SchaarSee all my reviews

The movie "Guy", from 1996, came to Mexico on September, 1998, probably because The Truman Show is about to be released here, and they are related in a certain way.

The only valuable thing on this movie is the acting of Vincent D'Onofrio, who is excellent playing Guy. The story is plain and boring.
