Kevin’s review published on Letterboxd:
North American actors playing roles that demand thick European accents is a massive No No so far as I'm concerned.
And as semi competent as Philip Seymour Hoffman and Rachel McAdams are the fake accents are just too much of a distraction and the film would have been a far more rewarding experience with European actors.
It's not as though Continental Europe is scraping the barrel when it comes to talent. There are plenty good enough actors who are the equal if not superior to Hoffman and McAdams.
William DaFoe pops up playing the role of a German banker and his phoney accent is simply hilarious.
The politics of film making. Bottom line its all about the sound of 'kershing'.
How the heck cm I expected to take this serious film seriously,
