Eines Nachts wird von Anne Frank und seine Frau Helen entführt. Dakota Fanning was wonderful and shows great promise as an awesome actress. David Callaway Robert De Niro , a psychologist working in New York City, decides to move with his 10-year-old daughter Emily Dakota Fanning to upstate New York. Also it gets bonus points for being a good date movie. Subsequently Frank attempts a forcible , against Helen's wishes, and during the argument he lets it slip that he never switched her eggs. I don't want to write too much about the story of this movie, because I guess it could ruin the movie.
Dakota Fanning is a young actress who shows an uncanny sense of how to upstage Mr. Sometimes he and Helen threaten her life, but then how would they have they baby? Okey, now to the second hour. As the police take Helen's body away, Anne emerges from the house with Jack and her new baby. I really didn't know how it was going to play out and it almost didn't matter who 'Charlie' even was. That aside, 'Hide and Seek' is a suitably creepy and dark movie.
That is due to the fact that Hide and Seek turns into a rehash of many other films. Charlie was revealed, and I was so angry I considered walking out of the theater. Go, you won't regret it. Take it from someone who has no axes to grind, who is not connected to the movie industry in any way,no behinds to kiss, no under the table pay offs expected, Hide and Seek is better than most of the movies that I saw last year. The acting was terrific and the mood and pace was unlike any thriller I have seen before. Her best-and only-good role as 'The Daughter' was in I Am Sam, where I thought she was fantastic. DeNiro should have looked at the script and then decided to burn it after reading the first 3 pages.
For an 11 year old, she is very creepy and sure knows how to keep an audience at the edge of their seats. Becoming suspicious that David has killed his own daughter, the neighbor asks to see Emily, but David cuts the neighbor with his knife. Back in the house, David finds that, although he has been in his study many times listening to his stereo and writing a journal , the boxes were actually never unpacked after the move. Famke Janssen has a few key scenes. Frankly, I hate to see a young likable talent like Dakota Fanning play morose, ugly roles like this. The plot line that the central character of the movie turned out to be the real villain is nothing new.
She really seemed actually frightened! It seems that something evil may have followed them into the woods. Those are big shoes to try to fill. You'd have to ask Emily, who is the only one who can see Charlie. Иногда материнская любовь не знает границ. Then strange things begin to happen - Emily discovers a new imaginary friend, Charlie. When he went over to their house, he talked to the neighbor's wife who broke down, saying that her husband did something bad. Although she chases and shoots at Anne, Anne cuts her face with broken glass and runs, collapsing on the roadside where she is found by a local teenager.
. After the suicide of his wife, Robert de Niro's psychologist character withdraws to an isolated rural location as therapy for his traumatised daughter. Typical stupid sheriff in this one who doesn't call for back-up and thinks his flashlight is a better weapon than his handgun. David Robert De Niro and Alison Amy Irving have obvious tension in their relationship. For those who hadn't seen it, the Dad was Charlie. I was just enjoying the setup.
Helen then kills a at the hospital and again kidnaps Anne to force her into having the baby. And then people start to die. Another movie that had that creepy-ending thing was Wes Craven's 'They'. David assumes that his neighbor is Charlie and begins to act aggressively. Why is it that creepy little boys or girls seem to always get away with anything? A much smarter choice than the original ending. But, it doesn't end that way, of course. I loved it and the ride was so intense I thought I'd burst at the end of the movie.
The movie also offers a lot of suspense. Look, when I see a creepy little kid, I will say that that kid is a creepy little bastard! No matter how many people think it is a poor film, I think that it was excellent acting, music and storyline. Mom kills herself in the beginning of the movie, or at least that is what it looks like. Good god, go through a mental list of great horror movies, and you won't find many that shy away from endings that are 'too dark'. Immediately after the countdown to midnight, David noticed his wife slip away.
