Critic Reviews for Off Screen
Decleir consegue a proeza de conferir humanidade a um personagem absurdo e desagradÃ¡vel, mas o roteiro Ã³bvio e pretensioso, aliado Ã lentidÃ£o da narrativa, torna o filme aborrecido e previsÃvel.
Audience Reviews for Off Screen
Superb performances by both Jan Decleir and Jeroen KrabbÃ© highlight this film that is more of a character study rather than a thriller (though that element is certainly present) and as a result the films narrative, while seemingly complex with its bevy of flashbacks, is actually fairly straight-forward and simplistic. Though the resolution ends ambiguously with many questions unanswered, it does add replay value to the film as the viewer can go back in an attempt to decipher what is reality and what is mere fabrication (depending, of course, if such a feat can be done). It's a solid thriller with a rich emotional base due to its main character's complexity but don't go in expecting an intense and thrilling movie; instead this one is all psychological in that it deals solely with fracture mind. If only the narrative is more focused, complex, and richer than this could have been a mind-boggling experience, but as it is it is still a good film. Recommended.
