What are people saying?

  • Aaken's rating of the film The Passenger

    A contemporary film noir set in Japan and Quebec. The acting is superb: Yusuke Iseya is steely, magnetic and yet fragile, Ryo Kase gives a great performance as usual, Gabrielle Lazure is very touching as the lonely ageing beauty. Rotger's stule is stunning. Add a haunting score by Dan Levi to that. A masterpiece in all aspects.
