Decent but frustrating crime drama that has some good bits and some bad bits. Like Avranas Miss Violence this movie also delves into the abuse of women and how the abused become perpetrators. Music, photo and production design all convey the drab and depressning mood. The script and pace is uneven leaving the actors adrift in the second reel. Carrey and Csokas all put in good work though. Could have been good!
This plot got me interested, it could have been really nasty, dirty and authentic raw. but instead it's just really boring and depressing.
Jim Carrey is trying, but i end up feeling sorry for his bad acting company, who i think kills his shine
Person 1: "There's a movie where Jim Carrey has an awkward sex scene with Charlotte Gainsbourg that ends with an extended close-up on his o-face." -- Person 2: "No, there isn't." -- Person 1: "Yeah, and Kati Outinen's in it!" -- Person 2: "Is it any good?" -- Person 1: "No, it's actually pretty bad." -- Person 2: "That seems a shame."
