If you've ever had deja-vu, it can seem like the events were meant to be. Technically it's supposed to be a delay in the brain between seeing and cognition, so it feels like you've already done it. And then there are signs from God. It can only happen in a movie. Logic is thrown out the window.
The director earned a nomination for the European Film award in the European Discovery of the Year category. This is quality cinema with a smart screenplay and a solid mise-en-scene. The main actress, Russian Kseniya Rappoport, has, without a doubt, a promising future ahead of her. Recommended.
A taut, twisty thriller about a housemaid whose love life takes a tragic turn during a botched robbery, but finds herself haunted by the accident, and the nagging feeling that her love may still be alive. THE DOUBLE HOUR is a film whose surprises genuinely surprise and whose shocks genuinely shock. It layers on the twists and turns, but each one makes sense, even as the film doubles back on itself multiple times.
i feel like this film was maybe the first or second draft of this story. if there would have been more revisions or editing done in the writing process it could have been better. also, it had the feel of a lot of European thrillers from the last couple of decades, almost like the filmmaker just watched a lot of films in preparation and took want he wanted from each one. it's not terrible, but not worth seeing twice.
Film-noir à la italian. La trama es preciosa, una mano siempre abierta al otro, un amor resignado y por lo tanto real. Una balada triste como lo es siempre todo el amor, un amor que se abandona a sí mismo porque se sabe genuino.
