Product Description

Product Description

Thick, tense thriller dealing with mental illness and dark issues surrounding the loss of a child. A young man suffering from schizophrenia struggles to accept the loss of his daughter - taken from a bus terminal. Keane (Damian Lewis) wanders adrift, taking an ostensibly unhealthy interest in others' children, flashing back constantly to the moment his daughter was taken. The film is made in such a way that the viewer is never completely sure if the abduction is real or imagined as the only glimpses we have of it are from inside Keane's head. Along the way he befriends Kira (Abigail Breslin) a young girl whose only dream is to belong to a standard family with a full set of parents and siblings.

Keane is a very original film but neither comfortable or particularly enjoyable one to watch. The film opens to silent credits and we are immediately immersed in the world of William Keane...gradually drip fed his story by the mans own frantic whispers and paranoid shouting at strangers. Driven to madness by the abduction of his daughter or suffering from delusion, nothing is particularly clear. The tension throughout is pretty unbearable and his swings from comparative sanity to full on schizophrenic instability seem frighteningly genuine. Damian Lewis is just brilliant as the ghostly Keane haunting the bus stations that changed his life. Lodge Kerigan's ultra oppressive direction adds to the feeling of claustrophobia - as does the utter lack of any musical score. A fantastic exercise in filmmaking and a brilliantly observed piece on mental illness, but it would be hard to class it as entertainment so be warned.

Keane is the story of a man in whose daughter was abducted a year before from a bus station, when she was six. The film follows his search for her and for some peace from his torment. However, as the film progresses it becomes more and more unclear whether his mental disintegration is subsequent to the loss of his daughter, or whether this is one of many terrifying delusions.

Damian Lewis is this film, he is in almost every frame, usually filling the screen with a close up on his face, the landscape is reduced to what you can see around him, adding to the viewer's sense disorientation and fear; like Keane, you never know what is just out of shot.

It is an exceptional performance, totally gripping. There are not many films that evoke empathy with mental illness, rather than sympathy, disgust, voyeuristic fascination or sentimentality. This film succeeds.

It is uncomfortable, it is claustrophobic, but it is a completely extraordinary film, that will haunt you.

Full marks for Damian Lewis's performance in a film where much is not as it seems. Even the tangible starting point for the film remains a mystery - did his daughter get abducted or is it a delusion? Does it matter? Although the acting, script and camerawork are good, and the claustrophobic feel evocative, the pace is at times a little slow. This film is more a portayal of a mentally ill man than a story with a resolution. It's a commercially brave film to have made, and that is probably why it was done on a budget. It sits comfortably alongside such movies as Pi and Eraserhead, or even Santa Sangre.

Shot in 32 days for less than $1 million this is a very good movie indeed.

Keane is a haunting film about a man suffering from both schizophrenia and the abduction of his 7 year old daughter. The director used long takes and up-close shots so that the audience feels drawn into the mindset of the man. While the movie is very intense, it is not unbelievingly depressing primarily due to Damian Lewis' outstanding performance as Keane. He befriends a single mom and her 7 year old daughter and those scenes manage to convey a mix of sadness, humanity and foreboding as we see Keane struggling with his inner demons. Most Hollywood actors would give a scenery-chewing performance of grief and madness - but Lewis gives a searing, contained portrayal. He shows us this man's humanity, but does not flinch from also exposing his flaws, including drug abuse and physical violence.

Keane is a glimpse into the life of a man struggling with the fact that his young daughter had been abducted six months ago. The film begins with William Keane in a busy New York bus terminal urgently approaching various passers-by if they recognize his daughter from an old newspaper article. Later he is seen trying to recreate the circumstances of his daughters dissappearance. With an outstanding central performance from Damien Lewis (it had to be, he's in every scene!) this movie can both beguile and confuse. With Keanes' fragile mental state and excessivelly uninhibited actions it is not always clear what his intentions are, which kept me on edge throughout the duration. This 2-disc edition also comes with a shorter edit of the film by executive producer Steven Soderbergh. Recommended!

If you rent or buy this movie,don't expect the Hollywood treatment that so many films of this nature would have.It's stark realism captured by the director and brilliantly acted character by Damian Lewis can be sometimes hard to watch but compelling at the same time.The story is simple but the complexities of the main characters mind-set give the movie an emotional roller-coaster ride.

The only downside to the English 2-Disc box is there is no "Making Of" featurette or any real extras that are worthy of the film.

Apart from that it's a superbly acted/directed relatively low budget piece of art.

A grim and disturbing film and not something I would want to watch again in a hurry but Damian Lewis' performance dragged me kicking and screaming through the movie. If there were any justice in the world he would have won an oscar for this performance. Quite possibly one of the greatest pieces of acting I have ever seen. Amazing.

This is not a very well known film but should be. The story is gripping and Damien Lewis' performance is outstanding. It was his ability to convey extreme emotion through physical expression alone, brilliantly displayed in his performance here, that apparently led to him being offered the role of Nicholas Brody in Homeland
