Another Me

Another Me is quite a competent film with an interesting screenplay, good atmosphere and solid performances. What I liked the most from this film is the ambiguity displayed by the screenplay during the first half, when we are not sure whether something supernatural is happening, or if it's just the main character's nerves and concern for her father's situation, besides of being stressed due to the rehearsals of a play. The film brings us clues which make any alternative possible: from the supernatural point of view, there are mysterious shadows with nothing projecting them; and from the mundane point of view, there is a rival student with long red hair, like the main character, something which reinforces the theory of a joke. The screenplay keeps being interesting during the second half, but it includes some unnecessary moments, such as the main character's romance with a gallant and the domestic tension provoked by her father's declining condition. However, the film recovers from those small missteps during the ending, adding suspense, growing suspicions and surprising revelations which enrich the mystery of the ghost double. Another Me adopts some tricks and concepts from the horror genre, but I would define it as a psychological thriller with a well achieved atmosphere, competent performances (highlighting Rhys Ifans', offering a weird serious work, very different to the lunatics he usually plays) and some subtle surprises which separate this film from other juvenile thrillers, revealing a more mature and artistic sensibility, which is exactly what we can expect considering director and screenwriter Isabel Coixet's previous work. In conclusion, I wouldn't consider it a great movie, but I liked Another Me pretty much, and I can recommend it. There are better films about "doppelgangers" (such as Enemy); and better tales about teenage neurosis out of control (such as Ginger Snaps). But none of them offers Shakespearean interludes which employ Macbeth as a mirror of the juvenile drama; that's where we can notice Coixet's ambition to transcend genres and tell universal stories based on the human experience.

British/Spanish Thriller in which a teenager is being stalked by a mysterious doppelganger who has her eyes set on assuming her identity

This is an intrigue/suspense film with very good cast , being well starred by Sophie Turner along with Rhys Ifans as daddy , Claire Forlani as mom , Jonathan Rhys Meyers as teacher , Gregg Sulkin as boyfriend , all have supporting roles in director Isabel Coixet's thriller . It deals with a normal adolescent girl called Fay (Sophie Turner as the teenager who haunted herself and the movie took so long to be made that when Sophie was cast the first season of Game of thrones (2011) hadn't aired) finds her perfect life upended when she's pursued by a weird double . Neighbors (Geraldine Chaplin) spot this other girl in the stairwell — even though Fay only takes the elevator . While Fay is at school emerges her alter-ego and turns her life into a nightmare until the teen meets with her into a tunnel and moves toward a fateful encounter . Teachers (Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Leonor Watling) and fellow students (Ivana Baquero , Gregg Sulkin , Charlotte Vega) say they interacted with her on the day Fay stays home sick . Could the look-alike be Fay's mean-girl rival who is her understudy in the school play? Or someone more sinister? It's enough to make someone go a little crazy — prompting a moment where Fay chops off her long locks just so people can tell the two of them apart .

A gripping psychological/supernatural thriller co-produced between Spain and England ; dealing with a teenage girl whose once seemingly perfect life is upended when her father becomes ill and a mysterious double begins inserting itself in her life and she then starts to fear she's being followed by someone who shares her face . Appeals primarily to those fascinated by Hitchcock intrigue along with ¨Twilight Zone¨ series where mystery matters most . Nice acting by Sophie Turner , this was Turner's first movie after having performed in the television series ¨Game of Thrones¨ . Turner gives perhaps his best screen performance in this interesting chiller-thriller about a teen who finds that her life is being taken over by her ¨double¨ . This her first film, Another Me, based on the book of the same name by Catherine Macphail and also written by Coixet , the film was produced by Fip, Rainy Day Films and Tornasol Films . It premiered in competition at last November's Rome International Film Festival and will be released by Fox in the Us, Spain, Germany and other select international territories . It features the actress in multiple roles, as a teenage girl named Fay who feels like she's being stalked by someone who looks just like her, and who is slowly taking over her life . The talented supporting cast consists of Jonathan Rhys Meyers ('The Tudors'), Claire Forlani (Meet Joe Black) , Rhys Ifans ('The Amazing Spider-Man') and Gregg Sulkin (Avalon High) , Ivana Baquero (Pan's labyrinth) and Leonor Watling (The Oxford murders) . Geraldine Chaplin (Zhivago) steals the supporting honours from a gallery of enjoyable minor roles as a gossip neighbour old woman . And Isabel Coixet revealed in an interview that Jonathan Rhys-Meyers was extremely difficult to work with , she argued that he had no discipline and that he run out Coixet's patience, making work really hard for everyone on set . Colorful though dark cinematography filmed by Jean Claude Larrieau , Coixet's usual . Being shot on location in Cardiff, South Glamorgan, Wales, UK and studios from Parc Audiovisual de Catalunya Studios, Terrassa, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain . Thrilling as well as suspenseful musical score by Michael Price , including a wonderful song titled ¨You haunt me¨by Richard Hawley .

The motion picture was professional though slowly directed by Isabel Coixet . Here director Coixet mixes dull stretches with some palm-sweeping suspense/thriller . Following this year's "Enemy" and "The Double" comes "Elegy" filmmaker Isabel Coixet's "Another Me." Coixet is an acclaimed Spanish filmmaker who has previously found international success with Elegy and The Secret Life of Words and she's the camera operator of her movies . Her filmography includes other feature films such as 'Cosas Que Nunca Dije' (Things I Never Told You) (1995), Elegy (2008), 'Mapa De Sonidos De Tokio' (Map of the Sounds of Tokyo) (2009), and the two latest 'Ayer No Termina Nunca' (Yesterday Never Ends) (2014) and 'Learning to Drive' (2013) besides documentary films, shorts and commercials . And recent premiere in Berlin Festival of 'Nobody Wants the Night' (2015) starred by Juliette Binoche .

Misunderstood

Another Me is a competent film with an good screenplay, great atmosphere and surprising performances. There's a quality drop in transition from the second to the third act, which is corrected with a well-guarded surprise at the end. Sophie Turner has done a outstanding job, showing that she knows how to act out of her character in Game of Thrones, Rhys who plays her father, and Claire who plays her mother are also great in it. Same goes for Jonathan Meyers playing her teacher.
