What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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.

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.
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.
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.
