Danish David Lynch-ian thriller about obsession
23 July 2010 | by MdlndeHondSee all my reviews

I have to say spoiler because i do reveal some parts of the storyline but nothing of all the twists and plots.

For some reason people get very defensive on movies about infidelity and rate them low. It could have something to do with the fact that this happens more often to people than, say, a zombie apocalypse and therefore it is closer to home and more frightening.

Story: The beautiful successful photographer Karen, magnificent performance of Sonja Richter, living the dream with a loving supporting husband (Michael Nyqvist)and daughter, meets the man of her dreams on a job in Paris. Literally man of her dreams as she dreamed confusing dreams about this man prior to their meeting.

A claustrophobic thriller with a David Lynch-ian twist with the reoccurring dream and a perfect circle of events. If you liked this you will also want to see Damage (Juliette Binoche and Jeremy Irons) and Polanski's Bitter Moon.
