Plot: A couple expecting their first child discover an unnerving difference between themselves and the couple living in the flat below them who are also having a baby. Runtime: 87 mins Release Date: 27 May 2016
I was completely blown away by this stylish thriller. I could not get enough of the Finnish actress playing the German wife downstairs. I really hope she was nominated for awards for her outstanding and brilliant performance. I felt connected to the three main characters, David Morrissey's the least but I think that actually works because he is the most mysterious and you don't want to know too much about him. There was a bit of slow pacing in the later half but it didn't bother me, I was invested already and was dying to know what happened. The ending was satisfying and one of <more>
those endings that had us all yelling out OH DANG! Worth a rental for sure, but I would watch it a second time with friends over just to see what they think of it.
Quite an excellent little thriller. Well acted with nice looking people. I thought the twist at the end was pretty neat too!
Really tried my patience; but once the story really gets going, it gets good. (by Hellmant)
'THE ONES BELOW': Four Stars Out of Five A British thriller flick, written and directed by David Farr. It stars Clemence Poesy, Stephen Campbell Moore, David Morrissey and Laura Birn. The film is about a couple, that's expecting a child, that gets into severe conflict with another couple, expecting their own child, that lives beneath them. The movie got good reviews from critics, and I enjoyed it as well.Kate Poesy and Justin Moore are expecting their first child. A new couple, named Teresa Birn and Jon Morrissey , just moved into the apartment below them; and they're <more>
expecting their first baby as well. The two couples meet, and have dinner together. Something goes horribly wrong, and the couples find themselves at great odds with each other. The film is very slow-building, at first, and that really tried my patience; but once the story really gets going, the movie becomes very interesting. The characters are all really well written, and acted. The film is also nicely stylized, with creepy, and sometimes very unsettling, atmosphere. The twist at the end is not that shocking though not nearly as much as the filmmakers appear to think , and again the first half of the movie is very slow-paced.Watch our movie review show 'MOVIE TALK' at: https://youtu.be/8E1WKbyL3YM
Parents-to-be Kate and Justin bond with the expectant couple who live below them in a London apartment complex.But when tragedy strikes, the relationship between the two pairs turns sinister, leaving Kate to fear for her sanity and the safety of her newborn......It's refreshing that for once a film that would initially sounds like a paranormal type film, turns into something quite significantly sinister, a film that could actually happen to any couple.The film has many red herrings from the upstart, shoes outside of the door could indicate that there could be some witchcraft/satanic <more>
rituals going on in the flat below, after all, the film has a very 'Rosemary's Baby' feel to it.Everything appears to be fine, both couples are upper middle class and have their own opinions on subjects, but the titular couple are just a little too covert, her a secret drinker, and him not really conversing or making eye contact.After the accident, things take a darker tone, the titular family leave, although their presence is still felt around the apartment, and once the baby is added to the family, things start going wrong for Kate.The baby isn't sleeping, her relationship with Justin is breaking down, and then the couple return.What makes the film work so well is that the writers keep their cards firmly covered right up until the final scene. Is Kate going bananas, or are the ones below purposely making their lives a living hell? When we see signs that foul play is afoot, Kate is on her own, and obviously when she confronts people, it's gone.But if you've seen films like Pacific Heights, Unlawful Entry, Single White Female, or Consenting Adults, you know deep down that she isn't crazy.The film isn't as extreme as the ones mentioned, in fact, it's not cinematic at all, it's the kind of thriller that would suit a two parter on the B.B.C. on a Sunday night, which isn't a criticism.So all in all, it's a very interesting thriller, with some very tense, albeit rather familiar sequences, with a belter of a final act.
I think my biggest praise for this movie — definitely more of a psychological thriller than a horror — is how damn uncomfortable you feel during THE ENTIRE THING. From the first couple scenes, including ones where soon-to-be parents Kate Clémence Poésy and Justin Stephen Campbell Moore are excited about their new baby, you just KNOW something is afoot. The director, David Farr, did a great job of using very subtle hints here and there without making it too overpowering. It's eerie and unsettling throughout.Their new downstairs neighbors move in and while everything seems picture <more>
perfect at first, you very soon start to see some very disturbing cracks in their too-good-to- be-true facade. It goes from simply awkward to downright terrifying pretty quickly, but so many lines are blurred in this movie that you really have a hard time being sure of anything: are Theresa Laura Birn and Jon the excellent David Morrissey as truly ruthless as we think, or is Kate just suffering from paranoid, sleep-deprived delusions? As we watch her sink deeper into her conviction that something is seriously wrong, you feel both compassion and cringing, which is impressive.Each character in this movie has their own distinct and brilliantly acted personality. Theresa is a bit over eager but ultimately very vulnerable and earnest. Jon is brusque and conservative. Kate is attempting to pull together a confident demeanor while feeling around in the darkness that is new motherhood, and she's instantly likable. And Justin is just trying to keep things together between work and Kate's increasing paranoia and erratic behavior — you can feel how thinly he is stretched by it all.The ending is heart-wrenching to say the least so well done that I sat with my hands clasped over my mouth as I gasped. Just awesome from top to bottom.
