This film is a drama, not so much a mystery, and it has an actual storyline, with characters who can grow and learn while dealing with life-changing decisions. It is not boring, unless the viewer needs either a lot of exposition or explosions. Without going into spoilers, I can say that there are some seemingly implausible aspects, but nothing in the film is actually impossible to believe. As already stated, the characters grow and change, and deal with decisions that will impact their lives, and I was pleasantly surprised with the ending, as it was unexpectedly uplifting.
After reading so many somewhat negative reviews I hesitated even watching this film - but then, it's actually a wonderful movie. Great actors and great script too. I guess what so many people don't like is that it's not a 'plot movie' - there's none of this 'overcoming obstacles' and stuff - I for one am glad! It's slow and thoughtful. Highly recommended!
Just last week I noticed how much I was missing seeing some decent films, and then I wander into two this week. The first was Certain Women. Not that you should never read reviews, I don't mean that. But some films, like these two, are better to experience blind, at least the first time. If you glance at the reviews you'll notice that some people like them a lot and some were just perplexed at how anybody could like them at all. But other than the fact that I gave it 9 stars so you know I'm writing this because I think highly of Conplete Unknown, you don't want to know what I know now that I didn't know before, because if you just trust yourself and the discretion of the fine actors who took these roles, then you might get lucky and discover something yourself. Cheers!
Spoiler: This female quick change character artist is intriguing but the story becomes quickly stale and boring, as The story dissolves like a snowman as the plot rambles on. Spoiler: Like a bird in flight never landing. The story plot offers a talented person, who returns to earlier romance, fifteen years after walking away. Then, finding no (surprise) warm enchanted welcome from her previous significant other, leaves again. The conclusion comes as the girl prepares to leave after wallowing around explaining her past and revealing her present living and working situation. Really? This would make a terrific short story, a quick character study then again, who cares?
I gave this film a 8/10. The film overall wasn't particularly special. At least the visuals anyway but that wasn't really the point was it? This was plain and simple a character study. Complete Unknown is about Rachel Wiesz's "Alice", the choices she makes and how those choices ripple out and affect those that happen into her life..or lives. Unlike some other reviewers I very much enjoyed the film with an emphasis on Rachel Wiesz. She's been my favorite actress for as long as I can remember and this film just reminds me why. She does so little and yet she is so powerful. There is so much behind those eyes. With just a look or slightest gesture the depth of this woman becomes so clear. Wiesz possesses the kind of talent that cannot be taught. It's both innate and at the same time acquired through real life experiences...through truly living life. Another reason I connected with this film is because I myself have changed lives...Not to the extremes that Alice has. But I have very much grown tired of the way things were and simply picked up and left to start again. So Alice very much struck a chord with me. The film isn't fast paced with any crazy twists and turns. Its very simply a study of a human being. But a very fascinating human being.
