Storyline

Julius Morlang is a successful art photographer who has moved on after the tragic suicide of his first wife, Ellen. He has found a new muse and lover in Ann, a younger version of Ellen. With the expected success of his new exhibition a near certainty, life for Morlang seems almost perfect - for now. But the past still haunts him. The voice of his dead wife appears on his answering machine - someone sends him her funeral announcement. Paranoia grows, and he is not sure whom he can trust. What is real and is imagined - and can you trust the one you love? Written by Aubrey Wiseman <Aubreys@hotmail.com>

Compelling and entertaining
6 November 2001 | by Marger-See all my reviews

I saw a sneak preview of this movie today, so I had no idea what to expect when I saw the title appear on screen. The film is a little slow paced, so at first I just wanted more information to know what kind of movie it would be. Soon I found myself yearning for more information along the storyline, and that feeling stayed until the end. The movie sort of sneaks up on you, drags you inside and doesn't let go.

Julius Morlang is an artist in his mid fifties who lives at the Irish coast with his wife Ann. Aside from what seems a couple of random images, the movie starts by showing a happy Morlang. Soon we are taken back two years and an intriguing plot unfolds.

I liked the directing and the camera work a lot. A lot of shots struck me as being of the right kind at the right time. The way the viewer is fed pieces of information throughout the movie has of course been done before, but was executed very well. The acting was more than satisfactory.

The only thing that bothered me a little was the terrible Dutch accent of one of the actors. Bothersome, but absolutely genuine I can tell you.

A high quality production, which certainly deserves the attention of a large audience. Overall, I give this movie 8 out of 10.
