Audience Reviews for Saint Ange (House of Voices)
A strange Horror with a weak storyline. Virginte Ledoyen (The Beach) seems a natural Actress and the film to me seemed a bit of a down graded movie for her to take on. Nothing much happens in the first 50 mins of the film and everything after (or at least, what I could concentrate on) showed nothing much of an explanation.
It lacked suspense and purpose
Wow this movie has either lost of the meaning of a 'movie' or they didnt try to make this a decent enough movie, either way i was losing the will to live with this boring, slow and so uneventful horror ive ever seen this movie lacked everything there were no good storyline , there was no scary moments no jumpy parts, there was no suspense and just drag on this is probably the most boring movie ive ever seen and it left you confused and bewilded with the ending that was just as rubbish as the rest of the movie!
Not worth a watch at all!!
I liked this movie a helluva lot more than most reviewers.
The only thing to this film's detriment is that its plots elements do NOT resolve themselves, which can easily leave a viewer feeling cheated. It's one thing to be subtle and give answers without being obvious, it is another to never give any answers but instead pile on more questions. This film does the latter, leaving an unresolvable mess of a plot in its wake. The ambiguity would be acceptable if it fit with the mode of the film, or if the details added up under careful scrutiny, but it doesn't.
The cinematography is beautiful, and I thought this was one of the most atmospheric ghost movies I've ever seen in color film. I was intrigued and chilled by many moments in the movie, which is tough to do to a seasoned student of horror genre. I thought the sets were amazing - true stunners of art design and lighting. The visual language in the film has a lingering creepiness that even revisits me if I just think on the movie.
SPOILERS: I disagree with many viewers who peg the film as a psychological thriller, and insist that it is very much a Gothic ghost story.
