  3. Caillouquiroule's rating of the film Absent

    En abordant les thèmes rabâchés de l'émoi adolescent et des relations interdites par le biais du (quasi) thriller sexuel, Marco Berger passe à côté de son sujet et fait un film finalement anecdotique. La situation, si elle peut arriver "en vrai", est tellement particulière que j'ai eu du mal à ressentir de l'empathie pour l'un ou l'autre des personnages. C'est pas mal fait, c'est juste très peu intéressant.

  6. Justin Vicari's rating of the film Absent

    This is fairly unique material, and at about the one hour mark it cinches up unexpectedly like a noose for about ten minutes. Then it sort of gets aimless again and finally remembers that it's delivering some sort of "message" at the end: sleep with anyone who wants you because you may feel like crap if they die. Seriously, that's the message. Almodovar would have made it more touching, Ozon more disturbing. Meh.

  7. sandinus's rating of the film Absent

    The urgent desire of a teenager fills a teacher with doubt and undeserved remorse. Ausente keeps you on edge while it explores a thorny subject that is hardly ever addressed on film. Another great film by Berger.

  10. Spoiler's rating of the film Absent

    AUSENTE (ABSENT) é A MALVADA gay. Um filme tão ambíguo quanto o seu titulo. O que começa como um thriller erótico entre um professor assediado sexualmente por um estudante, aos poucos, torna-se uma tragédia shakespeariana com um final inesperado. Um jogo de manipulação que confunde o tema da pedofilia através da inversão de papeis.

  11. Eirik Smidesang Slåen's rating of the film Absent

    A great screenplay doesn't get the images it need, and ultimately becomes not that special.
