Milcho Manchevski's Shadows is visually striking but gets bogged down in supernatural clichés.
An unwieldy hybrid of historical allegory and supernatural mystery.
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.
A hauntingly frightening, clever and surprisingly poignant psychological horror film.
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.
