5.0 out of 5 stars Nail-bitingly tense thriller with an unbelievable twist!!, 29 Sep 2002
This review is from: The Others (2 Disc Collectors Edition) [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
I really didn't fancy this much, as I am not really a big Nicole Kidman fan, I haven't really liked any of her films before this, but what a surprise!! She was really good in this film, though I had to turn the sound up really loud at the beginning, as it is all whispers. Whether this is to make the film more atmospheric, I couldn't say, but I did find it a bit annoying at first! However, once I'd settled into the film, I loved it!! It is a sort of 'old-fashioned' thriller, and not just because it's set just after the war, I mean in the whole way it is done. The story is really very good, though I was puzzled in parts of it, not least when her husband returns home, but all becomes clear eventually. There are many twists and turns, and some are quite predictable. However, the ending was not at all what I had guessed, and I was completely gob-smacked!! I have since watched it again, and I am still as amazed as I was the first time I saw it. All in all, I think it is a very good film, and one that I thoroughly enjoyed. I have changed my mind about Nicole Kidman on the strength of this performance. I had her down as just being a pretty face, and of course, the ex-Mrs.Tom Cruise, but she has proved herself to be more than that. She is able to carry this film off, without over-acting, or becoming tiresome. I defy anyone not to be completely wrong about the end of this film. I certainly was!!
