Movie Reviews

QUIRKY PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER IS FUNNY AND SCARY
Robin Simmons | Palm Springs area, CA United States | 07/29/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Quirky, and suspenseful, Damian Szifron's THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA (Home Vision Entertainment) is also a darkly comic riff that follows soulful, handsome Ezequiel, an obsessively jealous aspiring architect as he stalks his pretty girlfriend Ana's older, secret lover during one fateful night.

The unease and sense of danger never let up as Ezequiel's sometimes funny but increasingly bizarre and violent behavior against his girlfriend's unsuspecting lover escalates.

It's never really clear just who to root for: Ezequiel, the unfaithful Ana or her very mysterious, secret lover. As clues mount regarding Ana's secret lover, you hope they are red herrings.

I wanted a surprise ending that it's all a misunderstanding and the young couple will get back together; or perhaps Ana and the older man are perfect for each other and crazy Ezequiel will be exposed as a dangerous nut case and arrested before he kills someone.

The tension is centered on what's what and who's who as our fears and hopes are pressed together with an unexpected climax that is weirdly satisfying.

This slick, clever thriller from Argentina is handsomely mounted with good-looking actors that are easy on the eye.
