About the Film
Sharp and witty but shot through with resonant tragedy, celebrated indie auteur Hal Hartley’s AMATEUR is a twisted metaphysical thriller that has been hailed as one of his greatest works. An ex-nun (Isabelle Huppert), trying to turn her hand to writing pornography, meets Thomas (Martin Donovan), a recovering amnesiac in search of his estranged wife. The two set out in search of Thomas’ past but soon discover a trail of secrets leading to the dark, violent heart of his previous life and the pain that forced him to forget…
Exciting, clever and original
A wonderfully provocative and sexy thriller that makes you think.
Tarantino once said that if you truly loved cinema with all your heart you wouldn’t be able to make a bad movie. This movie has a vision and it commits to it with seriousness and humour and love. So it works. It’s deeply idiosyncratic and so won’t suit everyone, but like it or not, it’s brilliant. The female lead is perfect, there’s such life in her performance.
