A New York detective investigates the death of his daughter who was murdered while on her honeymoon in London; he recruits the help of a Scandinavian journalist when other couples throughout Europe suffer a similar fate.
New York detective Jacob Kanon has a daughter. A beautiful, talented daughter who is brutally murdered as she honeymoons in blissful ignorance. Soon after, the strangest of postcards arrives on the desk of Swedish art critic Dessie Larsson... Across Europe, couples are being ruthlessly butchered in deliberate acts of violence with no end in sight. The only clues, are picture postcards sent to seemingly random journalists by a narcissistic killer, heralding the next horrific crime. Seen from the joint perspective of both the hunted and the hunters, THE POSTCARD KILLINGS digs deep into the most frightening aspects of the human psyche, drawing Jacob and Dessie into a nightmare from which there might be no escape. As the narrative explodes with operatic ferocity, our protagonists find themselves with an impossible choice to make.Written by
Too generic and cliché movie with poor direction from Danis Tanovic are making this thriller not worth seeing it
"The Postcard Killings" isn't that bad, especially in the first half of the movie, but towards the end there is a big lack of tension and suspense, which isn't a good sign for a thriller. Some of the illogical decisions literally leave you scratching your head. Strangely enough, the movie often times feels like a over-simplistic drama rather than the thriller. At the end, it is a disappointing film that did not live up to it's potential, struggling with pacing, miscasting and absurd motivations for the killings.
