Editorial Reviews

When teen lovers Gaspard and Marion stumble upon a cell phone, they decide to track down the owner and find him, dead, in a mysterious suicide ceremony. Next to him lies a half-conscious girl, Audrey. Possessing femme fatale looks and an enigmatic tattoo, Audrey lures Gaspard into Black Hole, a dangerously addictive online game. Gaspard s avatar encounters beautiful but poisonous singer Sam, who attracts victims in the virtual world and seduces them to commit suicide in real life. Could Sam s alter ego in the real world be Audrey? Could Gaspard be her next victim? He will have to journey deeper into Black Hole to learn the terrible truth.

I tend to be picky about directing, editing, cinematography, script, acting, etc. in most films but in this case I'm going to look past all that and look at what was definitely creative (meaning to a large degree not redundantly copied from elsewhere) and/or unique story telling and to me those other film attributes mentioned above were adequate enough to convey a thoughtful and suspenseful contemporary thriller. Not bad!

The movie starts off from the pool, where Gaspard and Marion stumble upon a cellphone and decided to keep it and from there on, this thriller sets off its pace. Let's just say this film is a little off kilter but nevertheless will hooked you. It has hints like a David Lynch-kind of atmosphere. Black Heaven is very polarizing, you will either love it or hate it.

The ideal viewer of this film should go in without having any knowledge of what it is about. An ordinary day at the pool, because of a lost cellphone, becomes an extraordinary tale of mystery. Beyond excellent performances and a literate script, there is an air of seduction and melancholy that becomes increasingly addictive in a way that makes the main character's choices convincing even when wrongheaded. The closest movie that comes to mind is "Blue Velvet", for which there a lot of parallels in this film. But there are enough differences as well that even having this clue should not spoil the film. Take the chance; enter "Black Hole" and make the trip to "Heaven".

First this is a very well produced film. That actors are good as the plot and the plot is very good. Very neice glimpse into modern French youth, as in twenty somethings, culture mixed with a death cult of sorts.

<strong>L'Autre Monde</strong> (Gilles Marchand, 2010)

<em>L'Autre Monde</em>, released in English-speaking countries as <em>Black Heaven</em>, seems like exactly the kind of movie I would dig. It's the second feature from writer Gilles Marchand (his first was 2003's <em>Qui a Tué Bambi?</em>, which got all the appropriate press and a few award nominations). It features a bunch of young and very beautiful folks, some of whom are computer geeks. It features some exceptionally well-done computer-rendered sequences (approximately a quarter of the movie takes place in a Second Life-style world known as Black Hole). It's a thriller that's striving to be <em>noir</em> without ever quite getting there. All of these are things I treasure in movies. And yet... and yet.

Plot: Gaspard (<em>Army of Crime</em>'s Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet, who's just made for movie stardom--he looks like the angelic offspring of Ryan Gosling and Ben Affleck) and his new girlfriend Marion (<em>Private Lessons</em>' Pauline Etienne), while cruising around on the Vespa looking for secluded places to cuddle, stumble across the path of a mysterious, hooded woman and her companion. (We later find out these two are named Audrey [<em>The Extraordinary Adventures of Adéele Blanc-Sec</em>'s Louise Bourgoin] and Dragon [<em>Romantics Anonymous</em>' Swann Arlaud].) On a whim, they decide to follow the two, and stumble onto what seems to be a suicide pact. Dragon is already dead, but Gaspard breaks into the car that's filling with carbon monoxide and pulls Audrey out, saving her life. This leads to him discovering what would seem to be her obsession with Black Hole, the alternate world where she met Dragon.

Movies about players being drawn into video games have been around since the games themselves got sophisticated enough to give seed to the idea. This is a slightly different take on the idea but it plays out similarly.

Here's the scoop. Four friends, three guys and a girl, live on an idyllic Island in Southern France. One of the guys and the girl are developing a deepening relationship. One night they come across a couple trying to asphyxiate themselves in a car. They rescue the girl. The guy dies. Our hero pockets a camera the couple was using to record the suicide. Through repeated viewings of the video he becomes intrigued by the surviving woman and wants to get next to her. He stalks her through an on-line game while doing what he can to befriend her in the real world. Her brother will prove to be an obstacle.

There are a few things going on here. First is the relationship with the four friends and how it changes as the two become romantically involved, and later as the guy gravitates toward the new, mysterious girl. Then there's this woman's involvement in the on-line game. This is a weird place. It's always night and it's always snowing. It's dark and brooding. Like a night spot for the darker side of the human consciousness. Then there's his increasing fascination with her, the deteriorating relationship with his girlfriend and buddies, and finally the trap that's been set for him.

The problem is that none of this builds well enough. I have to say the problem is at the script level. There was plenty of time to work these things into the story. The writer just failed to do so. It all needed to be much tighter. It looks good. The game scenes had an interesting design. It's acted and shot well and the music was good. The story just didn't develop well enough.

This isn't at all a bad movie by any means. I just wouldn't put it at the top of my viewing list.
