Storyline

When his late mother appears in a vision and tells him to go to Bucharest, Charlie immediately boards a plane across the Atlantic. But when he meets a fellow passenger, Charlie finds himself with another promise to fulfil. Charlie does so - and falls head over heels in love with Gabi, a beautiful musician. However, a vicious gangster has already laid claim to Gabi, and has no intention of letting her go. Determined to protect her, Charlie enters into the hallucinatory, Romanian underworld filled with violence and, strangely enough, love. Features an all-star cast including Shia LaBeouf, Evan Rachel Wood, Mads Mikkelsen, and Rupert Grint.

Quotes

Darko: [Angry at Karl for misspelling his name] My name is Darko. Darko.
[Brings out a pen]
Darko: And maybe if I put this pen right into your asshole, then write my name inside, you will remember?
[Luc chuckles nervously]
Darko: Something is funny?
Karl: [Looks at everyone, very nervously] Yeah. What you just said with the pen-in-the-asshole thing. I mean you can't actually write inside someone's asshole.
Luc: It wouldn't actually help me remember.
Karl: How can you read inside your own asshole?
Luc: You wouldn't be able to read it.

Dark Mysterious
16 November 2013 | by SCcontrolSee all my reviews

Dark Mysterious tale well cast well acted just odd enough to be diffident from the mainstream. Perfect locations were sort and used to full effect giving a realist feel to this movie. Breathing life into a film that stands head and shoulders above many a middle of the road attempt of this sort of strange super natural oddball movie. Elements of genesis are running through it with clever one liners from a unhinged gangster played to great effect.To sum up this film reminded me why i watch so many movies in a hope to fine one like this as good as this nowadays seems about one great movie in 25 or so movies watched.
