Product Description

A taut thriller, THE OTHER MAN is an intimate tale of a man who discovers his wife's infidelity and sets out to track down his rival. Driven to pursue the mystery surrounding his wifes adultery, Liam Neeson embarks on a global pursuit with a haunted passion that begins to probe the nature not simply of jealousy, but of loss and forgiveness. The film is beautifully shot on location in Milan and Lake Como as well as in London and Ely by renowned cinematographer Harris Zambarloukos (Mama Mia!, Heart in the Sand.)

Amazon.com

In The Other Man, Liam Neeson lends his volcanic authority to an elegant psychological thriller. When Peter (Neeson) discovers evidence of an affair on his wife's laptop, he tracks down the other man (Antonio Banderas) in Milan and stalks him. But though there are taut moments of suspense, the movie's emphasis is on watching Peter's mind unravel and seeing the damage this does to his daughter Abigail (Romola Garai, I Capture the Castle, perfectly cast as the child of Neeson and Laura Linney, who plays the wife). The movie suffers from some confusing editing and a few implausibilities, but the main reason it languishes in obscurity is that it defies the usual expectations of a thriller--which is the main reason it's worth seeing. Banderas turns out to have secrets of his own, and the conclusion takes a surprising (and delicately moving) turn. If director Richard Eyre (Notes on a Scandal) had had a slightly firmer grasp on the story line, this could have been a fascinating case study; as it is, it's intriguing but fails to fully satisfy. Neeson is, as ever, compelling--he's able to turn from understated obsession to ferocious outburst in a heartbeat. --Bret Fetzer

By R. Schultz VINE VOICE on January 7, 2010
Format: DVD
Contrary to the way the disc jacket advertises this film - there is almost no suspense here. So don't get it thinking you'll see anything Hitchcockian, any psychological thriller, or even any pale shadow of suspense.

But more than that, "The Other Man" suffers from terrible editing. It seems to be made up of footage haphazardly collected from the cutting room floor. The movie is supposed to be based on a respected novel - but something apparently got lost in translation from one medium to the other.

For one thing, you might soon find yourself wondering what Antonio Banderas' character is supposed to be. Is he a gigolo - a janitor - a petty moocher - a hospital orderly - an international sophisticate - or a true romantic? This disjointed multiplicity doesn't reflect any intelligent complication of character. No, it's a simple lapse into messiness. We see Banderas' character flash from one of these personas to the next without any adequate segue.

In a director's commentary that is more intelligent and interesting than the film itself, there is still no adequate explanation of these abridgements.

Finally, the central performance in this mishmash, Liam Neeson's portrayal of a jealous husband, is emotionally inauthentic. I myself felt like walking out on this character and this film and cheating with some real thriller.

Just watched this film last night and feel the same as other reviewers. I watched the first part again to figure out if I had dropped off and missed how/when the Linney character disappeared. It could have been a great film but they either cut corners, or thought the very subtle segue to the husband throwing out the wife's clothes would be enough to tell us what the hell was going on. The story would have been much better if we had clearly known what happened to her and that the husband was then on a postmortem mission to find the lover. Disappointed

I am usually a man with quite a few words. And I'm an English teacher so you'd think I'd write my first review on Amazon to post a cogent and thick review. But no. I'm here right after seeing this movie because I feel it is my public duty to say this:

This movie was (insert explative here) horrible. Don't give it five minutes. But if you do, watch the ending just to see someone looked confused with three coffee cup containers in hand. It doesn't make any sense. And it sucks. Badly. Then it ends, and I now somehow feel dirty. That's just how bad this movie is.

Don't do it.

Like a lot of people, I chose this DVD based upon the excellent cast, writer/director, and descriptives on the DVD label; however, I was quite disappointed with the movie. I will not provide a rehash of the plot (other reviewers have already done this) but will focus on the specific deficiencies.

Whether due to faulty editing or a failed attempt at artistry, the continuity of the plot has serious problems. There are jumps of time and location which simply do not make sense. In more skillful hands, discordant chronology may be a valuable feature (Memento), but here it is simply confusing. At one point, I, like another reviewer, became convinced that my DVD was defective and a portion of the movie had been deleted. Such sloppiness is distracting, disappointing, and inexplicable.

The concept that people are not as they may seem is, in more skillful hands, a wonderful plot twist. Here, however, it was presented in a heavy handed, cartoonish way. Each of the main characters at times demonstrates a lifestyle or behavior that is not just unexpected but jarringly inappropriate and impossible to believe. SPOILER: I can possibly accept that the sweet, gentle husband is prone to loud, profane, violent outbursts....but for the suave, ladies man to actually be a penniless, tortoise-rescuing janitor??? Come on, why is this necessary? How does this advance the plot in any way? It is a childish, simplistic twist without any redeeming merit. END of SPOILER

Character development is virtually non-existent. Why do these people behave as they do, especially when their behavior is so "out of character"? These revelations could have been the best part of the movie, but sadly are ignored.

People appear and disappear from distant locations with no time or effort required.

This is a love story with greater depth because it explores human emotion at its height. The viewer journeys with the two main characters and sees how different people deal with love, betrayal, anger, fury, surprise and life in general, and the immediate responses to the discovery. It takes the viewer on a journey of how two different men deal with their respective circumstances. We travel with the betrayed husband and watch him move from fury to, if not forgiveness, at least some form of pity first, then an eventual letting go of the pain. We also travel with the "other man" and slowly learn how he deals with his life circumstances. The movie leaves the audience with questions. Questions about not only "the other man" and his choices in dealing with his life, but also with the woman's choices, and what moved her to lead a double life. Questions that ask the viewer, "What would you do?" It's an excellent movie about life, its challenges, its accountability, and its consequences.
