4.0 out of 5 stars Well crafted, imaginitive film.
Very nicely shot film, full of mystery and intrigue. Recommend if you're into slow, purposeful direction.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - baffling, impressionistic, beautiful and psuedey in equal measure!
Interesting film. Has moments of greatness and is often sumptuous to look at. The central character is not so much played as utterly lived by Michel Subor. This is way beyond mere acting. The slowness of the pace, the film's refusal to follow any kind of conventional narrative, the repetitiveness and the sheer banality of much of what we see onscreen, however, mean you'll...

Interesting film. Has moments of greatness and is often sumptuous to look at. The central character is not so much played as utterly lived by Michel Subor. This is way beyond mere acting. The slowness of the pace, the film's refusal to follow any kind of conventional narrative, the repetitiveness and the sheer banality of much of what we see onscreen, however, mean you'll need a sturdy filmic constitution to endure this one! But for those open to a bit of postmodernist, existential, (literally) heartless pseudery, there is much to enjoy and admire here.
A memorable film then, but one to avoid if you require easily digestible meanings or pat endings or simplisitc motivations.

2.0 out of 5 stars Beyond me!, 21 Feb. 2011
This review is from: The Intruder [2005] [DVD] (DVD)
The film's visuals are strikingly beautiful, from forest scenes in the French mountains to the clear blue ocean of the South Pacific. The story? Well, it's the tale of a good-looking, weatherbeaten man in his late 60's with a weak heart and a shady past. After that...I have to admit that I couldn't discern any meaning or even attempt to comprehend what was going on. There is very little dialogue and I found the film disjointed and slow moving. I kept thinking that things would become clear as the film progressed, but try as I might, I couldn't link all the unrelated bits or separate the real from the imagined to form any sort of narrative. Definitely unconventional, and way beyond my intellect.
