The Face of Another ★★★

Foreign Film Quest

This was not an easy movie to invest in, the story is stretched out in a long runtime and the plot moves quite slowly. It was an intriguing premise they set up and well acted with some interesting themes of trauma, self identity and scientific exploration but I just feel the story failed to developed into anything thrilling enough and the B plot with the girl with a scared face was confusing as I don’t understand what it had to do with the main story it was completely irrelevant to the themes besides she too struggles with self identity. Overall an interesting watch but some cool ideas but it didn’t quite come together for me.
