Editorial Reviews

A wavering bride, a stranger, an earnest groom: "romantic triangle," right? Think again. To that set-up, filmmaker Matthew Parkhill adds twist after twist to shape a surprising romantic thriller. Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries) plays the stranger. Natalia Verbeke is Carmen. And James D'Arcy (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World) portrays her fiance. Each has secrets to be revealed. Each is prey to the others' agendas. Keep your eyes open. Don't miss a detail. Cross your t's and Dot the I.

Customer Reviews

Great story with a twist.
Mariusz & Justyna
Maybe, but honestly, I don't believe none of us will act like those characters do even though we are 'just bored.'
Tsuyoshi
It succeeds by alternating scenes of suspense and surprise that, in retrospect, make perfect sense.

Wonderful performances by Gael Garcia Bernal, Natalia Verbeke, and James D'Arcy as well as Tom Hardy and Charlie Cox (sort of like a Rosenkrantz and Gilderstern) -- great cast all around.

Great directing and editing.

The suspense will keep you guessing so that you cannot wait to find out who is who and why they are that way.

Sort of like the Spanish Prisoner and a bit like Sex, Lies and Videotape (in terms of the gritty realism).

It deserves all of the awards it won and then some.

Some have called this movie silly, shallow and poorly written, directed and acted. Do they actually think it is a romantic thriller? Its true subject is reality cinema. Independent films have fallen on slow times lately, having peaked at all the awards shows three years ago. That writer-director Matthew Parkhill has tweaked the genre while leading us in another direction entirely is so clever that Alfred Hitchcock himself might have cracked a smile.

Not that "Dot the i" pretends to match the master. But it does have the oblique view of human nature and dark motive that he liked. This little-known movie would be too clever for its own good were the script itself not so clever or so good. It succeeds by alternating scenes of suspense and surprise that, in retrospect, make perfect sense. The artists who made this film about artists like themselves haven't missed a trick. Critics who dismiss their accomplishment dismiss indie films, and we don't want that, do we?

A jobless Brazilian actor (Gael Garcia Bernal, he of the killer smile in his first English-speaking role) and a quick-tempered flamenco dancer meet cute in London on the eve of her wedding to a rich Englishman. All three bring to this triangle doubts about their own securities and commitments. One thing is clear: all three rightly suspect the other two are concealing something. As the story unfolds in several directions at once, we realize how devious the plotting has been and, in the final sequence, how slickly we've been conned. What a sweet surprise!

Movie was not at ALL what I expected but then again I didn't really know what TO expect. I am on this foreign/independent film kick utilizing netflix to the best of it's Foreign and Independent Film Library ability. :) that being said on to my review.

Everyone that has left a review before me pretty much breaks it down so I won't bother with that but I will agree with someone else who said this movie is a "ode" to independent film makers as well as just how far "reality TV" can go. The first few frames of the movie is all telling you may think that they are just showing random interesting locations but it is very well done how they pull it all together at the end. The clever use of cameras and camcorders in this movie is as much a part of the plot as the words and actions of the actors. The story/plot itself seems familiar enough.... love triangle, girl gets engaged to rich boy, girl meets someone more passionate, girl keeps running into the more passionate boy, fiancé's finds out yada yada yada.... at times this movie hints at some underlying thriller {tones} Carmen has a past boyfriend that was psycho to whom she believes is perhaps in London stalking her.

I gave the movie 4 stars because it surprised me, there were times (towards the end) where I sat in front of my TV angry at the actions of one of the actors and then I was clapping my hands when something was pulled off with such ingenuity, yet less than 10 minutes later. In this day and age where you are HARDLY ever surprised or that a movie will make you feel such varying emotions in the span of your hour and 30 minutes I can't recommend this one enough.

"Dot the I" is a brilliant and unpredictable film, which usually comes around at least once a year. The cover of the film says "This Years Memento" and I'd say that's a fair statement although this movie isn't quite as good as that movie. The thing I respected about this movie was that once your handed the first twist, you think you know what's going on. Then they throw something else at you and you've got it figured out. But they have one last thing in store before it reaches its end. The movie stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Kit, an enemployed actor who lives in France and meets Carmen (Natalia Verbeke) at her Bachelorette Party. Due to an French tradition, Carmen has to pick a man in the restaurant to kiss. Her last kiss as a free woman. Carmen picks Kit and shares a kiss that makes her rethink her marriage completely. Carmen's fiancee Barnaby (James D'Arcy) is worried about what's going on with his beautiful fiancee, as Carmen (semi-reluctantly) starts an affair with Kit. The movie is really entertaining to a point where you're reluctant to get up. It's in the vein of films like "Memento" or "Match Point" or "Mulholland Dr." but it's not quite as dark or moody as those movies; This is one of those smart films that teenagers will like and adults will appreciate. All the actors, especially the hot Verbeke, are great and writer/director Matthew Parkhill shows an immense talent.

GRADE: A
