There are films in the world about which no matter how you write and dont talk, you still canÂt say anything intelligible. Because they must be watched. And even having looked a little, there are no words to describe what he saw and comprehend what he had only recently watched.
Nicholas Rog – a scoundrel who created one of the best nightmares. He will remember more than one sleepless night. Based on the novel by the writer Daphne Du Maurier (the book that Maestro Alfred Hitchcock so delightfully filmed. Rebecca, The Birds, The Jamaica Tavern of her handiwork), Roge mixed the equal plot, visions of the main characters, gloom in equal proportions. and the mystery of what is happening. Thoroughly shook it all and splashed out on the audience. Having completely eroded the sense of time and consistency, the director did not leave any characters and viewers any chance of salvation.
Rogue managed to turn beautiful Venice into a rather gloomy place. Which literally entangles its guests with snares of nightmares. From everywhere it blows with some ominousness and death. It is no accident that this city was chosen. It is completely surrounded by water, and if you recall the circumstances of the death of the daughter of the main characters. .. That, this city becomes doubly dangerous.
Even those heroes who in fact turn out to be normal are suspicious. Everything is not as it may seem at first glance. And even on the second. Beginning rather sluggishly, the picture soon gains serious momentum, more and more drawing the viewer into a web of mystery and understatement. Forcing a person to think, reflect. In general, leaving no one indifferent. And in the end, without giving an answer to any question. Leaving the viewer in some perplexity, what all the same it was.
Existential nightmare. The worst thing in this nightmare is to slowly go crazy, staying in this dark kingdom forever. This is called the atmosphere. And few directors are capable of creating it. Rog, however, coped with this task superbly, giving us, without a doubt, the pearl of cinema. And a big box with secrets. Which can be opened endlessly, finding everything new and new. Something that I didnÂt notice right away. But I wanted it so.
