restrained to a fault
25 February 2018 | by phenomynoussSee all my reviews

This movie is extremely restrained, minimalistic, "slow-burning" as another reviewer puts it. It's in fact too restrained. Far too restrained.

Ostensibly the movie is about some sinister ghostly going-ons in an ugly run-down flat in England. For the vast majority of the run time, we follow a lonely kid living in this run-down flat with his distant father. Late at night he hears odd thumpings and thudding sounds in the flat next to his. He suspects maybe it's someone stuck in there or something. His only friend and companion is a girl named Carmen, the only person around his age who s attention to him without bullying him.

This eats up the majority of the playtime, and if you're interested in the characters, good for you. Unfortunately there's very little that is compelling about this story at all. The supernatural elements come in so sparingly that it seems almost goofily out of place in an otherwise straightforward, realistic film. It's restrained to such a degree that it becomes a distraction, sticking out hard from the rest of the film.

Once we finally do get the plot to unfold, it's very late in the film, and the resolution is rushed along to such a degree that, being bored as I was by much of the first 2/3rds of the film, I missed something very quick and suddenly the last 10 minutes made very little sense to me. Looking at the other spoiler-filled reviews helped me to understand, but this movie left so little a mark on me that I just didn't care.
