This movie just drags on, more so than most movies we've seen of this kind. We are an independent movie lovers club worldwide with 646. Another reviewer wrote about how this film is like nails down a blackboard. If there's one thing that's missing a lot in the Italian film scene, this is science fiction. The acting is like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard and the music score drones on neverendingly at levels that Almost drown out the dialogue. All the sound is post-synced.
No surprise to see the terribly depressing form of Michael Madsen there. But the movie lacks direction, refinement, and certainly money. While investigating her car, Gina hears the sound of breaking glass and turns to see two identical dogs fighting each other next to a broken mirror. She finally stretches far enough and narrowly escapes being hit by the train, but successfully grabs the picture. Back at Stefan's flat, Gina notices his mirror is missing and he explains he broke it by accident.
Instead this film is honestly one of the worst ones I have ever seen. Daniel runs away as Mirror Gina stares at him and smiles. . Zachman about her concerns that the man known as Stefan is not really her boyfriend at all. Gina backs up, crying, looks up and suddenly remembers coming home, seeing something that frightens her. At least then you will have done something worthwhile with your time, otherwise, you can get more entertainment out of watching 'The Tigger Movie'. But the movie lacks direction, refinement, and certainly money.
This is one weird movie! The story is rather disjointed, I'm hoping it was more due to poor editing, but I doubt it. This movie just drags on, more so than most movies we've seen of this kind. It's like when you wake up and you remember your dream - flows illogically from one scene and action to another unrelated scene and action, and so on. Even on fastforward this one is hard to stomach. Unaware of her observer, Kate takes a shower, but is disturbed by the sound of a mirror breaking.
Mirror Gina is then seen driving her car while smiling eerily to destinations unknown. The writing is as bad as the written movie summary. All the sound is post-synced. He began worrying about what has gotten into his daughter's mind. This is the case with The Broken Key. Unfortunately it just can't make up for the rest. More memories flit by as Gina processes everything, then she goes to the living room window which she looks out and down at her father, John, who is standing on the sidewalk looking up at her.
The neighbor does not finish what he has to say, and nervously goes into the apartment with his wife. Therefore it is always nice to see some attempts to revive the sci-fi in our country. A series of murders followed by many clues will lead the protagonist, a British scholar of ancient Italian origins - new Adam and revived Arthur King - to walk on the path traced, so many centuries before, by Dante Alighieri and by the painter Hieronymus Bosch. The acting was terrible, the script was complete nonsense, the music destroyed almost everything, and it just made no sense. Gina explains that she has been inside the whole time. Puzzled, he walks further into the apartment when he begins to hear scrubbing noises and follows the sound to the bathroom where he sees Kate scrubbing the blood stained floor.
He brings his usual stoic half-humor to the role, but even that can't raise this film above 2 stars for me. The acting is non-existent, as the roles require nothing in this area. Panicking, Gina calls John for help but when a man who looks like John appears out of the shadows from behind him, they are disconnected. It is reasonable to assume most viewers will find this an incredibly long 2 hours, during which they could have painted a wall and watched it dry with more entertaining results. Coupling terrible directing and odious scripts means that I really could not make any sense of what characters were feeling. We then see Gina running down the street and into a phone booth where she relives parts of her day and picks up the phone receiver and calls her brother, Daniel.
Most of the actors are examples of once great actors who now are too tired to give a good interpretation of the script. If you are not a registered user please send us an email to info filmaffinity. The shots are so nice, the plot has possibilities. The dialogue, when not inaudible due to the musical score making unheard, is just nonsense. No surprise to see the terribly depressing form of Michael Madsen there.
Gina pulls the bag off her head, which causes the previously suppressed memories she had been struggling to remember to come flooding back to her. In the middle of the dinner party, a mirror previously knocked askew when John entered the room falls and shatters. There are not many films that deal with this genre, even less those who manage to gain visibility. The music is so obnoxious. It's like they tried to commingle the 'The Celestine Prophecy' with 'The Da Vinci Code' and ended up with mud pie. The acting is non-existent, as the roles require nothing in this area. Libraries have turned into inaccessible museums.
