An engrossing psychological thriller.
Penning, who also co-wrote the script based on a real-life scandal from the Netherlands, tangles up his timeline so thoroughly that any suspense is strangled out of the story.
Chilly, slow, absorbing.
A murder mystery so artfully restrained you almost expect Diana Rigg to deliver a witty epilogue.
Straining for emotional intricacy, the film's structure simply isn't strong enough to support its aims.
A portentous and goopy Dutch drama, in which the holy agony of creative expression is accompanied by plinky music, and the wild Irish countryside is always kissed in mist.
Spins a tangled web of adultery, betrayal and professional and personal jealousy in the heady world of European high art.
Without enough suspense, surprise or engagement, this pretty-as-a-picture piece feels as flat as one of Freeman's paintings.
Morlang has surprises up its sleeve that even the seasoned genre fan may not see coming.
Sad story about a man whose art was more important to him than relationships. Betrayal, revenge, and hidden emotional landmines combine to make this hard to take. The back and forth story telling made it dificult to follow and this viewer found it extremely difficult to piece together the whys. Why does he push his wife into the arms of another man and then punish her for the consequences? Why does she go along with it when she obviously does not want to. Why does he decieve her and make the ultimate betrayal? And why did the authorities never question the suspicious nature of her death? This was all based on true events, so I suppose the film-makers had to be faithful to what really happened, but as a film, it was less than satisfying. Pretty grim stuff.
