What a fucking great, creepy movie. Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page (future Inception co-stars) are both on their A-games, and the story is reminiscent of Psycho, in a good way. So why the hell didn't this get a theatrical release?
This is about a person with dissociative identity disorder: having two different persons in one body, here: a man & a woman. This is most proably due to childhood abuse. We do not know much about the reasons why because only very litte, rather nebulous information is given. Overall an interesting movie but nothing spectacular.
This film really shows a viewer the variety of characters Cillian Murphy is capable of playing. Murphy plays a male as well as a female, both characters differing quite drastically from one another. The main character suffers from multiple-personality disorder, and the film portrayed it well. Not once does it belittle the disorder; instead, it shares with us a beautiful story I would recommend you experience.
Cillian Murphy is a God. The movie itself is heart-touching, but it lacks the originality in its concept. I found the fact that no-one recognizes Emma as John extremely satyrical, however, it came on sort of as a social commentary.
