Storyline

An unemployed ex-office worker (Anna Thomson) searching for work floats a fragile line of sanity as she struggles to find friendship and companionship. Her tenuous grasp on reality further fluctuates when a man (Matthew Powers) whom she met in a restaurant and started an affair is called to go to India for an assignment. The final straw occurs when she is evicted and moves into a sleazy hotel. She then starts seeking casual sex in unorthodox locations just to have human contact.

Spiral Down
4 January 2003 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

A very well written and made movie, 'Sue' was for me a revelation. I can certainly just be sorry that the director does not work more in Israel, the Israeli cinema certainly needs directors with such a talent.

Sue is the story of a lonely woman, craving for friendship and love, but incapable of building or making last any relationship. It is also about living in New York, enjoying the diversity and the colors, and the crowds, but getting slowly killed by them. It is also about finding human feelings in unexpected places, and not being capable of responding to them. All these may have been said and seen before, but Kollek's movie succeeds to bring them in a very exquisite balance.

Acting is superb, the story telling is fluid. The life of Sue seems to have ups and downs, as most life story have, until you realize that this is a hopeless spiral down. Human and touching!

I think that this film had a lot of success out of the US because it reflects very well the mix of attraction and fear that we, non-American feel for New York.

9 our of 10 on my personal scale. A gem!
