[7.25/01] Grace (2009)


Grace (2009)

"Grace" lives up to it's title as a sophisticated, subtle and intelligently twisted exercise which relies on the power of it's central idea completely and runs with it to its logical conclusion. The filmmakers do everything to allow the theme to operate in stark contrast to reality. One of my favorite aspects of the film was how female-centric "Grace" was, but the characters were three dimensional as opposed to some of the more recent big budget Hollywood films. The film direction and cinematography were neat and quite realistic. Although the story might be predictable, the acting brought new perspective on this weird subject „having a strange child with even more strange needs". You can see the strong wish of the mother to keep the baby, giving all of her to the child. Emotionally and physically! Piece by piece! A classic fight of generations, little of selfishness too, fights without a personal barrier! ...Horrifying child, a mother capable to do anything gave me the creeps! A dark, dramatic tale of horror, "Grace" is a creepy, understated ride rife with social commentary, black humor and excellent performances.

  • My Rating: 7.25/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 68% (6.5/10)
  • IMDb: 5.5/10
