Più che rosmary baby mi ha ricordato Hotel della Hausner, anche qui come nella pellicola austriaca si gioca molto con le atmosfere e con il non detto....peccato per il finale troppo confuso che secondo me rovina un po' tutto ma è un film che merita sicuramente un'occhiata anche solo per quella gran figa della kuppens ignuda
Too focused on uninteresting and cliched relationship dynamics, making it unengaging. Left Bank is well acted with good characterization, yet the supernatural element is also not well woven into the realistic story, as it doesn't really enhance it, the characters, or even connect to it with metaphor, and a strong ideology. What it does do is provide some thrills and a good end twist, yet that means it's unfocused.
Van Hees presents us a dark portrait of a young woman and the darkest mysteries that surround her. Little chilling but well-made, it feels like more drma than horror when watching it for the first time. The ending is quite interesting that it leaves you watching it again while Kuppens gives a fabulous performance as Marie and its unforgettable cinematography takes your breath away. (Also, there's nudity a plenty.)
