Movie Info

Two women from disparate social and economic backgrounds spend a great deal of their time exploring modern industrial landscapes, but for very different reasons. Successful Japanese businesswoman Tamiko (Miho Nikaido) was hired by a real estate corporation to study malls, amusement parks and resorts. Homeless teen Amanda Timms (Mira Billotte), who spends most of her time randomly filming and pondering her surroundings, wanders the same areas because she has nowhere else to go.

Critic Reviews for Chain

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (3)

  • What might have been highly effective as a nonfiction short is extended way beyond its dramatic possibilities, and the narrative structure Cohen has devised adds little to the overall effect.

    October 5, 2005
  • A hypnotically involving film based on the genuinely novel idea of stitching together shots taken over a six-year period in 11 American states and six countries.

  • Jem Cohen's visually haunting film deliberately blurs the lines between fiction, documentary and cinematic essay.

    September 14, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's still thought-provoking, but not quite as profound as it pretends to be.

    September 14, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A dreamlike travelogue that transforms a mundane world into something strange and new.

  • Both Nikaido and her untrained co-star, Mira Billotte, do too good a job at portraying ennui and Chain suffers as much as it succeeds from it.
