This movie was great, best I've seen in a while.
20 May 2018 | by See all my reviews

I thought I knew the extent of Jim Carrey's breadth but I was wrong, he was great in this role. I didn't even "recognize" him. First off if you're an American it's probably true to say you'd have to be a fan of "foreign" films. It has a very European look & feel to it and the plot and pacing is very non-Hollywood. I'm grateful for that, being a fan of "foreign" films myself. The ending as many have said had a bit of a twist but I sort of expected it. It didn't quite hit me as hard as the ending of say, The Vanishing by George Sluizer (the original, not the terrible American remake with Jeff Bridges or the terrible, terrible remake of the remake w John Cusack) but it was still right in line with the sobering unsettling type of endings I like. An added plus was that it was in English and I didn't have to read subtitles. So much is lost in reading subtitles rather than understanding the language spoken in the film. Vocal inflections and nuance are lost if you are not fluent in the language spoken in the film. There was no problem with that here though. I recommend giving this film a try, if only to see Jim Carrey stretch out well beyond his usual shtick and do it astoundingly well.
