A Psychological Suspense
2 December 2013 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

I can understand why the reviews of this film do not agree. Not everyone would like Pinprick. It is a psychological suspense film that revolves around a triangle of characters with the relationships changing as the film progresses.

Charlotte is a teenage girl whose parents have separated. She lives with her mother. A mysterious man enters their lives and complicates their already dysfunctional relationship. The fact that a teenage girl and her mother have a relationship that swings from love to hatred is nothing new, especially if the parents are estranged. But this man's agenda is unclear.

The viewer must negotiate the confusing clues of the story and try to determine exactly what is going on. There is a feeling that one character is manipulating the others, but who is the manipulator? The game is dangerous, but what exactly is the game?

To tell any more of the story would be saying too much. I will only say that this film may not have a point of view. It may be a suspense that exists only for the unraveling.

The acting is convincing. I really enjoyed the way the background music created an ambiguous mood. But the sound was annoying in a couple of scenes, making it difficult to understand dialogue.
