4.0 out of 5 stars Shades of the Wicker Man 12 Dec 2011
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
This film definitely has shades of the original Wicker Man with its theme of an outsider coming to a remote island community that has dark secrets. A psychiatrist who is herself suffering from the loss of her own child takes a job on an island in Eire where a girl has been caught abusing a baby in her care. From the moment she arrives on the island things start to go wrong when she nearly dies in a car crash. As she investigates Dorothy she uncovers what appears to be a case of multiple personality disorder but as her investigation progresses things become ever more sinister as the tale twists and turns.
Unlike the psychiatrists in Hollywood thrillers who get involved in murder cases this lady; played by the very attractive Dutch actress Carice van Houten, is completely believable and never oversteps the realistic boundaries of her role. However the prize has to go to Jenn Murray who plays Dorothy for the superb way she portrays each of her personalities ranging from the sweet childlike Mimi to the menacing Duncan where she makes herself look almost masculine with her aggression. The only other face likely to be familiar to UK viewers is the pastor played by Gary Lewis, last seen in the series 'Merlin'.
This is an excellent slow burning thriller with many twists and turns right to the very end and well worth watching.
Although most of the scenery is cold and sombre it transfers beautifully to blu-ray.

Format:DVD
Dorothy is filmed in a a rural island setting off Ireland, where the locals are most unwelcoming to the female psychiatrist sent there on the mission of treating the little girl Dorothy. The storyline very much centres itself around Dorothy played by the wonderful Jenn Murray, and her relationship with this psychiatrist played by the equally impressive Carice van Houten. Very early on it is apparent the islanders appear to hold Dorothy in some special regard and it's not until the ending that the viewer can appreciate why this is. Dorothy is clearly troubled and one wonders whether she is possessed or is she a little girl with a multiple personality or personalities or is it something else?

I found the film engrossing from the very start and didn't find it as dull as some have suggested for the first part of the film where the scene is set and the viewer gains an insight into the issues that are troubling young Dorothy. I found it engrossing and you will find that everything is tied quite succintly together at the end.

I can understand comparisons with Case 39 and even the Uninvited however I would view it as superior to both. Comparisons with The Exorcist are slightly misleading as that one very much revolved around frights whilst Dorothy is a film more based upon the mindset and strange activity of a little girl but without the horror or frights that the The Exorcist created so well.

If you enjoy films that portray interesting personality disorders with a nicely crafted ending you'll like Dorothy. Give it a try, the lead actress and the main supporting actress put in terrific performances. You'll enjoy it from start to finish and you will watch it more than once- always the sign of a good film!

Best film of this genre I have seen in years. Great twists in the plot, but also very moving. Great cast and the portrayal of Dorothy was superb.

3.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtfulness and poignancy over horror 24 Jun 2012
Format:DVD
I do wish sometimes that the marketing department would tone down their methods. To compare Dorothy to The Exorcist (as per front cover) does the film a disservice. Dorothy has no connection whatsoever with evil spirits causing harm for harm's sake. What you get is a complex film which demands the viewers' attention throughout; there's a great deal that only makes sense towards the end.

Tis always a joy to see truly decent British or Irish films that offer something different. Superficially Dorothy has a rousing score at times with a panoramic cinematography which capture the bleak and wild beauty of Ireland. Beyond that the acting is all top notch depicting an insular and deeply religious community with secrets to hide.

As per the blub, Dorothy is caught in the act of harming a young child. Our lady the pyschiatrist is sent to the island to make an assessment before she's tried in court whilst Dorothy maintains she didn't do it.

In a sense, I think comparisons (though obvious) with the Wicker Man also does it injustice as there's far more to it than straightforward paganism against theism (or, in this case, religion against science). In any event, it's a race against time for our intrepid psychiatrist to uncover the truth before Dorothy is brought to court. The mission isn't helped by the island's locals whom wish to see her leave for conflicting reasons.

Can our lady get to the bottom of the mystery in time? What secrets are the locals hiding? Is Dorothy lying all along?

Definitely a film worth watching; it's not a horror by any stretch of the imagination though it will get thinking long after the credits roll.
