When it finished, I was left in a big dilemma , I didn't get it.!
The technicality of making this thriller is wonderful, great directing, the whole atmosphere is so thrilling and tense, but I didn't get it!
I have to say that I'm not a fan of these kinds of movies, and this movie in particular was sometimes boring and had long scenes , but it was meant to be a thriller and it was , big time.
After it ended , I couldn't help but think about it, trying hard to connect things together, to understand, and I didn't get.
Until finally I got a break through, and I had a sudden in lighting,
Here comes the spoiler:
The only thing I could come up with, is that the whole idea of the movie , the key to everything, and the bottom line lies in the visit of the theatre near the end of the movie, when the 2 main characters go to Silencio! When the performer on stage kept saying that it's all on tape!! The players are not plying the instruments live, it's all on tape ! and when the lady starts to sing, we think that she's really singing, and we , and the characters, get emotional and react deeply to her singing, it turns out to be that even the singing is on tape! And that what the movie is about, what we saw before this theatre scene was not real, it was on tape, and what will happen next is what actually happened,! What we saw is not real. Just like the lady who sings, what is real is what will happen next!!
Am I off beat here?
This was the only explanation I could come up with, am I missing anything!
Or maybe the movie is not supposed to be understood ,?!
This movie reminded me of Donnie Darko and Space odyssey!!!!
