Movie Info

A successful young doctor with a beautiful wife, a happy child, and a comfortable house finds his life suddenly changed in ways he never thought possible after being injured in a serious car accident. To the outside eye Lazar Perkov (Boris Nacev) has everything -- indeed his friends and colleagues have even gone so far as to christen him with the nickname "Lucky." But appearances can sometimes be deceptive, and despite having all the creature comforts, Lazar is constantly trying to live up to

Milcho Manchevski's Shadows is visually striking but gets bogged down in supernatural clichés.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

An unwieldy hybrid of historical allegory and supernatural mystery.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

A respectable enough little ghost story, but it loses a lot of sparkle by being similar to such other guy-talks-to-the-dead thrillers as The Sixth Sense and Ghost Town.

Shifting between garish city and bucolic scenes, Shadows offers some arresting images but fails to make good on its intriguing early scenes, with frissons of uncanny menace sunk by a glib, awkwardly paced and increasingly cliché screenplay.

[The] two very attractive leads, Mr. Nacev and Ms. Stanojevska, were picked out of a pool of aspirants in Macedonia and its neighboring countries. Actually, they are so arresting together that it is truly unearthly.

If not for the hypnotic atmosphere, lush cinematography, and frequent, if random, softcore humping, we'd have seen these ghosts before.

Manchevski bathes Shadows in the highly-charged, melodramatic atmosphere and renders the trashier touches with aplomb.

Critic's Notebook

A hauntingly frightening, clever and surprisingly poignant psychological horror film.

January 30, 2009 Full Review Source: NYC Movie Guru
NYC Movie Guru

An exercise overly rooted in American genre filmmaking while never sufficiently mainstreaming the European context in a way that would break out to more commercial stateside distribution.

A soulful Macedonian movie about a physician whose quest for meaning enables him to take responsibility for a terrible family secret and to come to terms with his lust for life.

Symbolic psychic horror tale is overlong and derivative.

Ostensibly about putting souls to rest, Shadows at times seems more about making sure our hero (and director) gets his rocks off.

Shadows presents the old superstition vs. rationality argument with sociological undercurrents and more than a few surrealistic touches.

The charm of Manchevski's film clearly lies in its ability to embrace its eccentricities and pull together a number of disparate ideas into what's generally a satisfying thriller.

January 27, 2009 Full Review Source:

Though overlong, the picture by 'Before the Rains' director Milcho Manchevski, is graced with stunning photography, spooky imagery, and a moralist's hand.
