Linkeroever (Left Bank) Reviews
Director: Pieter Van Hees
Summary: Ailing athlete Marie (Eline Kuppens) feels as if she's found the perfect place to recuperate when she moves in with a new boyfriend (Matthias Schoenaerts) and takes up residence in the idyllic Left Bank. But a shocking discovery in the basement sends her spiraling into doubt and insanity. Suddenly, she can't be sure whether her lover can be trusted -- and she's seeing things that can't otherwise be explained.
My Thoughts: "The film seems to have quite the blend of things happening. There are also quite a few of WTF moments. There are things that happen to a few characters that are never really explained. I don't consider this a horror film. The film is to slow for a horror flick. But I still enjoyed most of it. The acting was good in this by all. Maybe more emotion here or there could have made you feel a closeness to the main character. But she did a well enough job. This movie entangled mystery, cult activity, romance, and a touch of reincarnation all wrapped up in one film. Not a bad flick, but not a great one either."
Fan of horror genre will figure out what is going on because it has many similarities with other horror movies like "Rosemary Baby's" BUT it has a very a different ending. An ending that left me with a feeling of WTF?!.
It has many good elements but not enough to recommended nor to rewatch it.
