Mesmerizing high tension
2 April 2007 | by raseczSee all my reviews

48 hours in the life of a young woman. Day, night, day and night. This is as much as you should know if you are to get the maximum thrill.

The first sixty minutes is set-up. Mysterious, claustrophobic and schematic. The hue is gray.

The last thirty minutes is execution. Questionably realistic (can't say why without a spoiler) and overly melodramatic. Bright colors.

The set-up half is mesmerizing. Conceived with a documentarian eye. The details of the exposition gotten out of the real world. It's all very instructional and scary in its cold-bloodedness.

I have two complains. First, miscasting of at least one of the secondary characters. For a narrative that makes a previous commitment to a clear political label, the ancillary woman is not credible.

Second, the execution half is drawn out. I can see the director fell in love with the situation and wanted to milk it to the last drop, but to an audience it goes on for too long. Cut this material in half and overall you have a great deal more impact.
