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

Schlöndorff and Jean-Claude Carrière find in Michel Tournier's novel a companion piece to their earlier Günter Grass adaptation, The Tin Drum.
December 3, 2003
Astonishing, disturbing, and altogether an affecting piece of work, The Ogre is Schlondorff -- and everyone else involved -- working in top form.

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.

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