I love it when a film tries to break new ground and tell you tale that is new and deliver it with style and edge, this film tries to do this but in my opinion misses the mark, I would still prefer to watch more of these type of efforts than the cloned crap that arrives on our screens each week.
It kicks off with a woman being kidnapped and drugged, a guessing game then begins, the only problem is I was left guessing right til the end, I wont lie, I am still guessing, I did not want the director to lay everything out for me, but this goes in the other direction of not explaining anything fully, with no real love for the main leads it becomes a case of do I care to look into the reason behind the event’s that are not clear on the first viewing.
* Spoiler alert *
If anyone has any answers to the following questions I would be grateful –
Who was the boss of this crime ?
Who actually stole the money, the young chap or the Farmer, or somebody else not featured in the film ?
Why did they fall in love with the pigs in the end ?
The ” Ordeal ” is one of my favourite films, and that was very weird, as well as being weird it also had quirky interesting subjects matched with dead pan humour and dialogue, this movie has the strangeness but fails to bring anything else to keep you involved with the story.
