Atmospheric character study
4 April 2006 | by d-i-robSee all my reviews

I saw "Lisboa" on daytime television and initially had low expectations. However, I was pleasantly surprised, and the film's understated yet powerful ending is still very memorable to me 3 years after seeing the film.

"Lisboa" is billed as a thriller. However, it's not pacey but suspenseful. Along the way it's a character study, as we find out about a sinister marriage. The characters, in common with the general feel of the film, are minimal. One man, one woman.

As I said, I think the ending is superb and memorable, and something a bit different from the usual Hollywood fare.
