A creepy thriller with a somewhat unexpected ending that detracted slightly from the effect of the film. Strong performances by Rachael Blake as the teenager, Miriam, Laura Greenwood as the mom, Charlotte, and Ervin Nagy as the interloper, Paul. Weaknesses include Paul's unexplained presence in Miriam's closet, Dad's seeming lack of concern over the presence of a stranger in his ex-wife's house, and the ease with which Paul talks Charlotte into letting him stay in the house "for a few days" after he comes out of hiding and "meets" her at the college where she seems to teach a continuing education course. And that wasn't the only unexplained continuity issue. Interesting, but disappointing and not as intense as it could have been.
Excellent movie. It reminded me a lot of The Swimming Pool for some reason, even though they are very different movies. It's a good foreign film; a strong dialogue driven drama, a concentrated isolated setting, with a quiet atmosphere and a small cast of characters. I'll keep the plot synopsis to a minimum, as that is easy to find almost anywhere. It's a story of a felon living in a teenage girl's closet, her rebellion against her mother, her mother's separation from her husband, and how all of their existences mix together. The initial premise seems ridiculous on the surface; a stranger to the family living in the girl's closet? .. but somehow it works. You'd expect some misses along the way in the story, holes and such, but other than how he got there originally there are no glaring loose ends. It's not a story for everyone.. but it is a good story none-the-less. It was well written, good direction/pace/cinematography, solid acting, no major flaws, and took a few big swings that worked out.
