Critic Reviews for Left Bank (Linkeroever)
...an interminable, disastrously overlong waste of time...
It has an uneasiness that recalls Rosemary's Baby and The Tenant but with a decidedly pagan bent...
Audience Reviews for Left Bank (Linkeroever)
Cast: Eline Kuppens, Matthias Schoenaerts, Sien Eggers, Tom De Wispelaere, Marilou Mermans, Frank Vercruyssen, Robbie Cleiren 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."
Atmospheric, slow burn horror film that didn?t really work for me. It takes a long time to get going, and once there, seemed unrewarding. There?s definitely talent behind the camera and I?d be curious to see what the director does in the future.
A quiet Belgian horror film with elements of horror but relies more on character development. The film focuses more of the psychological stress of undergoing changes, like how an athlete feels when they can no longer compete. 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.
