Weird. “Too many questions are left unaddressed, much less unanswered, in its rush to a meager non-payoff.” Love Ethan Hawke and Kristen Scott Thomas, but didn’t understand why they did this esoteric (or do I mean stupid?) film. What happened in the end? Why was his daughter left in a park? Why was he in a mental institution? And what’s with the bugs. 3-4 times the camera would close up on beetles or spiders.??
I'm surprised the community's opinion of this movie is so low considering how good the movie is. There is an exploration of living spaces, in particular the barriers different locked spaces have on our lives.
Totally lame. Don't waste your time on this. You keep waiting for it to get better, but it never happens. The best part was when it was over.
Don't bother. A pretentious bit of nothing.
This is definitely an art-house piece, with much of the plot unexplained and left to the imagination of the viewer. Some people will find it very annoying. However, it is still fairly well directed and well acted. I find it watchable, but it is not a great film.
Simply awful. Ethan Hawke is catatonic, the great Kristin Scott Thomas is totally wasted. Unintelligible dialogue and pretentious directing. Ugh.
Other than some great scenes of Paris there is not much to recommend this movie. Most likely the film does not do justice to the novel upon which the movie was based. There are no conclusions to any of the storylines leaving one bewildered at the end.
so what really happened?
is he still in his hospital in the states and this is a total delusion?
is the problem just france and he had his kst delusion in his awful hotel room or working space?
A Euro-arty atmosphereicly confusing (...and teasingly unrewarding) 'intellectual' exercise.
I just didn't get it, didn't like it and was expecting more.
I am glad I didn't see it at the Bytowne when it was showing there. It would have been a waste of money.
