Goofs

When Ralph receives the phone call from Lisa and leaves his chair, he knocks the table, rattling the chess pieces. However, Peter stops them from falling off the chess board and the chess clock remains in position. When Peter gets up to follow Ralph he doesn't knock the table at all, but as we cut to a long shot of Peter leaving the table there are no chess pieces at all on the board and the chess clock is on the floor.

User Reviews

Engaging drama
8 September 2010 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about a man who discovers his wife having an affair with someone in Italy. He is enraged and is determined to find and kill the adulterer.

"The Other Man" is an engaging drama about the enmeshed relationship of three people. The composition of scenes and the use of appropriate music enhances the atmosphere of the film. Acting is uniformly good by all three leads. Laura Linney appears appropriately frail at the end, Antonio Banderas is the macho ladies man, while Liam Neeson suffers in anger and grief. Despite the limited amount material, "The Other Man" manages to be captivating and engaging. If the story of "The Other Man" could be expanded, it would have been even better.
