Very different from the other BMW films
The Follow is the third BMW promotional film. Director Kar-wai Wong brings us a very original way of filming car chases. Or is it really about car chases? First, he didn't use any sound effects for the car chases; there is just a very pleasing music in the background, as to give a sort of artistic style to the scenes. Mickey Rourke and especially Forest Whitaker play convincing roles. As for Clive Owen, he's the master! His performance is quite delightful. He plays a detective who has to follow a woman. The first few shots will make you think he is a cold person just doing his job, but then his real humanity surfaces, showing us a warm-hearted and compassionate man. An entertaining short film, though promotional, but filled with mystery, romance and even gentleness. You'll be surprised to see that after all, the movie's message goes beyond simple car chases. I'll leave you to interpret it yourself. I also strongly recommend the other 3 BMW films: Ambush, Chosen and Star.
