Storyline

Actor Ben Cura's directorial debut "Creditors", based on August Strindberg's 1888 play, is a modern re-telling of Strindberg's story of love, betrayal, revenge and psychological manipulation, a "sometimes angry and surprising film that brings with it strong performances from the entire cast", "what a Terrence Malick film would look like in black and white", "an intelligent thought-provoking film which questions gender roles, female sexuality and male anxieties" and "an incisive and accomplished piece of filmmaking [...] possessing a rich, powerful psychology that instills an unnerving modern-day relevance to age-old material" - Grant Pierce arrives from London into Madrid, Spain, hoping to be given the chance to meet his favourite painter, American Freddie Lynch, who is currently staying at a private hotel in an unassuming location outside the city. As Grant steps into the main building of "El Madroño", he finds Lynch a crippled man whom, he soon reveals, has been unable to actually ...

Great Adaptation of a Fantastic Play
22 June 2016 | by dietermillsSee all my reviews

I saw the stage version of the play and it's not a play for everyone. To be honest Strindberg's stuff is not for everyone so if you're not into that, you'll have that to deal with. But if you're into good plays, and acting, and black and white cinema done properly, this movie ticks all those boxes. Ben Cura was 25 when he shot this, that makes it even more impressive. His performance, and Andrea Deck's, are standouts. I like Christian McKay in it too, and it was nice seeing the great Simon Callow cameo at the beginning of the film. Would like to see it again so looking forward to its release outside of film festivals (saw it in Berlin). Also wouldn't mind getting my hands on the soundtrack if they release it.
