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

Really tried my patience; but once the story really gets going, it gets good.

'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 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.

Wicked People, Do Wicked Things.

I'm not a film critic to say the least, but I do enjoy a good story and decent plot with hint of twist. For me this film had a little of all it. From the cast performances, to the plot and story, this one kept me interested from beginning to the end. Two couples expecting a child, living in a two family home. One couple lives upstairs and the other couple are The Ones Below, lose their expecting child, and from there, the story unfolds. Good afternoon, film especially when you have a day off, just to relax and kick your feet up on the couch. I will say that for me, I wished the characters had just a little more depth especially for the build up towards the end. I was disappointed in what happened to the mother who did give birth. Truly a diabolical look into how wicked people do wicked things. Overall good watch, and worth a buying a ticket if it was still in theaters. Recommended watch.
