Avoid!

As forgettable remake as your ever likely to see! No tension, no suspense, just tawdry, over the top lusting!

This film feels like Jack Nickolson's half-disinterested, half-surprised face

I have not yet seen the original but definitely planning on it so as to make sense of whatever happened in this film. An extremely uninteresting couple of unrealistic characters, with no arc, nothing to distinguish them other than a woman in love, and an ambigiously untrustworthy man. The abstract plot, apart from this film, is undeniably exciting. However, as a film, it does not work out to be remotely gripping. From moment to moment: the film jumps without rhythm through its plot points in an almost tangental and inconsequential fashion. It becomes clear from the immediate and unexplainable first sex scene that this film does not care for pacing nor its characters. Frank and Cora interact laboriously, with sparse and insignificant light-weight dialogue that fails to 'flesh them out'. Production design, acting and cinematography are all at par or better, but suffers in every other direction.

Wet performance

It doesn't seem relevant to me to have read the book or to have watched the previous versions in order to value the film for what it is: A non-dissembled classic tragedy. Crude, very expressive, of brutish characters, clearly focused on their inescapable sacrifice. The best? How the constant humidity of the atmospheres is portrayed, the clear and fine exposure of the eroticism, the depth of the shadows of the characters: Aggressive punks oozing of sex for whom the red lines don't exist. Characters that fit perfectly with the genre, in fact. The best of the best? The outstanding performance, very transpired, relevant by the chemistry between the actors. Excellent stuff! After the movie I ran to buy the book. I promise to read it soon. OK, I was crossing my fingers.
