Der Unhold (The Ogre) Reviews

Melissa Morrison
Boxoffice Magazine

From its awkward childhood prologue, which features painfully bad acting, to its title character, a simple-minded, large-of-stature man played by the most intellectual-seeming and average-sized of actors (John Malkovich), The Ogre is ill conceived.

Schlöndorff and Jean-Claude Carrière find in Michel Tournier's novel a companion piece to their earlier Günter Grass adaptation, The Tin Drum.

Episodic and vaguely surreal, it is the antithesis of a Hollywood film that tells us what to feel. Having unfolded an ever-widening series of moral questions, it deliberately leaves them hanging.

Haunting as the film is, it never feels quite cohesive.

Schlondorff has said he built the film around Malkovich, and the actor lives up to the responsibility.

With his slightly cross- eyed gaze of wonderment mixed with ferocious intensity, Malkovich makes Abel both childlike and frightening.

Astonishing, disturbing, and altogether an affecting piece of work, The Ogre is Schlondorff -- and everyone else involved -- working in top form.
