Sensitive, romantic, tragic and lyrical, The Poet lives up to its name.
Redemption is a common theme in the 'Hit-man' genre and this film explores the guilty conscience of Andrei a professional assassin, who after killing a young, innocent witness in cold blood becomes intrigued by the life and art of his latest victim. This leads to his discovery of (and attraction to) Paula, the witnesses sister. As their unique relationship grows, Andrei is torn between his lonely and violent existence as a contract killer and the healing love of Paula. Pursued by a relentless Cop, it's only a matter of time before Paula finds out the truth of Andrei's identity, and Andrei himself answers for his crimes. Dougray Scott portrays Andrei's complexity perfectly - an isolated man of few words, wrestling with his inner demons, on the edge of losing his very soul. Laura Harring's moving performance as Paula encapsulates a sensual humanity that draws Andrei to her, making their falling in love all the more believable and tragic. Jurgen Prochnow, as always, gives an engaging, almost predatory performance as the pursuing Cop. Paul Hills' film style bares a likeness to the style of Director John Frankenheimer and those classic '60's and 70's thrillers that we all love - very tight and measured, almost documentary-like in some places. The Assassination scenes were very tense, concise, shocking and fueled with momentum and suspense. The camera-work in the Austrian countryside was particularly breath-taking. Sensitive, romantic, tragic and lyrical, The Poet lives up to its name. Overall, an engaging, well crafted romantic thriller.
