4.0 out of 5 stars Name any three actors..., 6 Jun 2005
This review is from: Apartment Zero [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
The story is set in Argentina where film buff Colin Firth is running an arthouse cinema while keeping a loving eye on his ailing institutionalised Argentinian mother who is slowly losing her marbles. With finances becoming tight he decides to take a lodger into his apartment. Firth is perfectly cast as the hapless English gent losing the plot but doing his best to maintain a stiff upper lip. After several failed interviews, control freak Firth chooses his polar opposite, an amoral and hedonistic American played beautifully by Hart Bochner. But that's really just the beginning.
This movie is a thriller, but it is the relationship between the two men that drives the story. An ensemble cast of neighbours weave in and out telling their stories - notably the wonderful Liz Smith (Royle Family's 'nana') - and the tension is maintained at a steady pace. If you liked 'Fargo' or 'Blood Simple', 'Angel Heart' or even 'Happiness', then give this a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Underated classic, 1 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best Colin Firth has been. Worth a peak. Nice suppressed melodramatic tone throughout. Camped up to a knife edge. Almodovar desaturated.
