Storyline

The teenagers Gary (Leon Ford), Brad (Chalie Garber), Emily (Lenka Kripac) and Tracey (Alex Vaughan) travel in a Kombi to a desert paradisiacal beach and spend the weekend together, the boys expecting to surf and have sex with the girls. When they arrive, they meet the older Zippo (Steve Le Marquand), and they have the sensation of Déjà vu with weird events, feeling that they had previously been in that place. Along the Saturday, they see that they are actually trapped in a nightmare. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Tracey: No! But I'm not going to tell him that.

Very interesting, though there's just something.....
22 May 2006 | by siitSee all my reviews

Don't expect a clichéd stereotypical slasher-fest with Lost Things(LT). It is thought provoking and makes you think and ask questions long after the credits finish.

LT seems straight forward, the tale of 4 teenagers sneaking away for a weekend of supposed debauchery and unwholesome fun... well that's where the similarities end in comparison to the afore mentioned stereotypical slashers. LT makes you think. It is a cognitive tale that doesn't treat the audience as if they are all pubescent fools.

However there are some glaring anomalies that seriously detract the viewer. Firstly the two lead teenage male actors are too similar in appearance and mannerisms; it was difficult to distinguish them at times. The screenplay seemed to lose its way with continuity and dialogue in places that was actually frustrating. And the editing and cinematography seemed to be jumbled and 'roughly cut' with shots and scenes thrown together haphazardly even when the viewer has the benefit of hindsight at the end of the film.

Overall though LT is a clever little outing. It would score higher but for the technical downfalls. I for one though do appreciate a good cognitive thriller ... and Lost Things tried.
