UK Release: CLONE
So pondering is the pace it's almost sedentary and most of the performances are disappointing but, strangely, this doesn't lessen the fact that this film had a strange hold over me from start to finish.
It could be the interesting fictitious-taboo concerns of clone incest and the approaching-Oedipal issues (the 'father' is already dead/is him, natch) that kept my attention. It's slightly racier than Never Let Me Go for sure, which is similar in it's theme and it's look.
The premise, allied to the fact that Eva Green is seriously good (you feel every ounce of pain etched on her impressively expressive, albeit permanently dour, face) and the washed-out but extremely pretty pictures result in a unique experience that won't be to everybody's taste. Matt Smith is seriously disappointing though.
