'The Other Man' is a drama with an impressive line-up of actors, consisting of Liam Neeson, Laura Linney and Antonio Banderas. It had a direct to DVD release in the UK, where it hasn't been received well.
The movie tells the story of a husband (Liam Neeson) who suspects his wife (Laura Linney) has committed adultery, which in plain english means, he thinks she has cheated on him.
The movie has an interesting premise at the start, gradually progresses without making much sense and then presents the viewer with a premature twist, which ultimately destroys any further interest. One thing I will say, is that the twist was unpredictable but not timed well.
The performances of the lead actors, Liam Neeson and Laura Linney were moving and well executed. Antonio Banderas in the other hand was not convincing. The direction provided by Richard Eyre is erratic as most of the scenes were disjointed and confusing. Also, if the twist had been timed well the movie may have been salvaged.
The Other Man is simply a mediocre drama, which could've been better.
Watch it if there is nothing else worthwile.
