Solid Thriller

A slow burning thriller that has a couple expecting their first child, living above a couple that just move in who are expecting as well. One night while they are all having dinner together an accident takes the life of the baby from the couple downstairs. The couple downstairs blame the other couple and leave their home to deal with their lose at their vacation home. They don't return until the other couple has their baby. Things get weird when they become involved with the baby. The mother soon discovers the couple's hidden agenda.

This flick was awesome. It keeps you guessing until the end and then it throws a curve ball or two. Solid acting and overall good production. I recommend this for sure.

Heartbreaking

It is a below average thriller if you consider the theme. I mean most of those TV movies of the 90's covered this topic, or at least a similar one.

A pretty modern take on a "classic" topic, with good acting, pretty good script and some nice camera-work and composition.

Not bad for a debut film, it keeps you guessing throughout, makes you think what twist will it be in the end.

As far as character development is concerned i think the director did a pretty good job in delivering close to 3 dimensional characters that you might care for.

Thrills You Gradually. ♦ Grade B-

I think David Farr gave more time to this thriller than to his much- anticipated and more popular le Carre adaptation, The Night Manager. For this one is a real winner between the two, despite of the variance in genre.

Kate (Poesy) and Justin (Moore) are a sweet preggers couple living in peace in the upper part of a duplex apartment. The newest renters of the lower part are another sweet but superstitious couple from Germany, Theresa (Birn) and Jon (Morrissey), also expecting a child. Soon after they move in. an emotionally devastating incident brings endless grief to the ones below and paranoia to their luckier neighbors above, especially to Kate. Because Kate thinks that Theresa and Jon might have some ulterior motive. And then the plot starts moving swiftly, exhibiting some great cinematography and writing as it moves.

Poesy is excellent in her enactment of an anxious mother of a newborn. Her petite appearance helps and so does the support from her spouse who is a rather normal husband torn between work and personal life. Theresa and Jon steal the limelight, and the writer aptly denotes and connects them with the color yellow that is effervescent of their apparent darker side.

The story involves human nature and the extent to which it can go when stricken with sorrow. Consequences and damages stop being concerns as the person quests to achieve what is not rationally right and what can only be achieved through crime. Farr has written the story well, and with the backing that he gets from the camera and score, he definitely places his attempt in the good baskets.

BOTTOM LINE: David Farr's The Ones Below is a finely made film with some good actors playing natural and slightly eccentric characters who are just trying to manage life... and death. A good afternoon watch at the cinema.

Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
