Left Bank chronicles the experiences of Marie, a young adult who has a talent for running track; such a talent that she placed fifth in the world. As she seeks to enter the European Championships, she begins encountering medical problems; her physician diagnoses her with extreme exhaustion, warns her of a low immune system, and advises her to take a month off, which would obviously interfere with her training. It's during this period that she meets Bobby, who immediately becomes…
Less a Horror movie than an arty Dutch film riddled with plot holes. The only thing that was shocking was all the nudity.
(My Twitter Review)
I don’t even know what to say about this one. It was stupid, unnecessary complicated and just really weird. It didn’t take me long to guess why shit was happening etc. Maybe it was because on the dvd-cover somebody had compared it to Rosemary’s Baby, and with that information it was relatively easy to connect the dots.
Sometimes the truth is better left unsaid.
That's the tagline for this film. It's also the method it was made by. A slow, casual mindfuck that's quite boring and completely ridiculous. A lot of things make sense, but it's not very interesting and by the end it's laughable.
A slow, dull, meandering, ludicrous mindfuck that ultimately isn't interesting enough for you to piece everything together.
My advice: watch this movie but set a timer to 15 minutes before the actual end. If the timer goes off, stop the movie, take it out of the DVD player and put it away. You'll be left wondering what the hell you just saw and how it ends but you will have enjoyed it.
If, however, you do watch the last 15 minutes it'll ruin your entire experience. Your choice. I gave it a 1 star review because I did watch the entire movie. Otherwise? A 4.
