Lost In Translation Of Time
20 November 2010 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Not a bad film. Nothing to do with a pop corn movie for Saturday evenings with a bunch of friends. It's actually an absorbing, intriguing but also unfortunately confusing feature, as we see today in many horror and crime movies. Twists within twists, and I don't tell about flashbacks within flashbacks...

I admit I am lost with all this. Perhaps I am too much cartesian. Or not smart enough.

This films begins in a way that make you think of Michael Mann's THE KEEP,where German soldiers in WW2 have to fight against an evil spirit. But the picture continues in a different direction. There are some lengths, but it's an interesting movie.

Try it.
