Form over substance
14 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

This thriller seriously suffers from the illness that could be summed up as "form over substance". Until the very end we do not know which events are real and which happen only in imagination of the protagonist. It doesn't really matter anyway, because this story - which could be easily summarized in no more than three sentences - is not absorbing, leaving audience uninterested in developments of the plot. One watches consecutive versions of this simple story with growing fatigue, the more so the ending of the movie can be predicted long before the obvious finale.

To sum up, "Tale 52" is boring for a thriller and too simplistic to be treated as a study of insanity. You will make better use of your time if you watch "Lost Highway" by David Lynch instead - the movie that is formally similar, but much much better.

My rating: 2/10
