I saw a wee blurb about it somewhere and it said it was a remake of the directors own film from ten years ago, which strikes me as odd and egotistical, it never said it had been remade into a different language though
The Hidden (original version) was excellent; Ron Howard seems to have really taken a turn for the worse as he's got older, hasn't he? I can't think who would be a satisfying replacement for Daniel Auteil though (Juliette Binoche could play her own part) - Auteil was so everyman plus, and he had a fragility which few American actors have. The only person I can think of is perhaps Daniel Craig.
Can I find a side winding thermal body belt? Can I buffalo...
so my understanding is that it's the son of the childhood friend out for revenge on the injustice his father suffered and the actual son out for revenge because he thinks his father ignores him and that his mother is tupping someone else who just happens to have a very similar name to himself
and you have to watch the action behind the end credits really closely to work that out.
Mind you I didn't like The Piano Teacher but it was nowhere near as horrible as Ma Mere, which was just wrong on so many levels.
I saw this yesterday and had to switch it off after the bit where they rewind the movie. Even though you don't see much its the most horrible film I've seen in forever, I have had Romy & Michele's Highschool Reunion on all day to try and take away the memory of it all.
