The Visitor

One of my friends reckons this film to be his Top 10 of 2008. While I enjoyed it and especially loved the ending, I’m not completely sold that it’s top 10.

What would you do if you came back to your own apartment and they were strangers living in it? Especially if you’re a widower who has lost all motivation to live. You open your heart to them and maybe, just maybe they’ll touch your life so you’re forever changed. And I guess that’s why it could be a top 10 type of film. The script was wonderfully written and the actors were good, everything else like direction and cinematography was alright. Not bad but not great.

For me, I loved the idea of hope the film offered. Hope. That’s a big thing for me. That’s why I think the world keeps spinning 🙂 and I love how films like this pushes us to think about the world differently, albeit every so slightly. Here’s one you have to watch on the big screen or when you’re in the mood for a thought provoking stuff, if not you’ll just fall asleep.
