About the Movie

A vacationing insomniac loses the ability to distinguish dreams from reality while traveling the Chilean countryside with a group of adventurers that includes her best friend and an enigmatic American in this downbeat saga. Though it came to the U.S. billed as a thriller or a horror picture, Chilean director Sebastian Silva's Magic Magic is more aptly described as a dark psychological drama with tense overtones. Juno Temple stars as Alicia - an emotionally fragile young woman in her early 20s with a murky history. She joins her cousin Sarah (Emily Browning), Sarah's boyfriend Agustín (Agustín Silva), the couple's eccentric friend Brink (Michael Cera) and Agustín's sister Barbara (Catalina Sandina Moreno) for a retreat in the countryside, but from the beginning, things don't go as planned. In the days that follow, more tension erupts between Alicia and the other members of the group, particularly Brink, who displays extreme anti-social tendencies and grows fond of malevolently pushing the girl's buttons. After Sarah returns, all hell threatens to break loose: Alicia is accosted by a local dog that attempts to copulate with her leg; Brink and Agustín play a dangerous game that threatens to cause Alicia grave physical harm, and it becomes increasingly apparent, throughout, that Alicia is now teetering on the brink of a full-scale mental breakdown, which terrifies the others.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Meticulously acted, gorgeously shot and hilariously insightful about the strange, inarticulable ways people can get on one another's nerves, this psychological thriller takes its premise to surprising, darkly comic extremes ... – Peter Debruge, Variety, Jan 29, 2013

Rotten: Magic Magic is skewered on the horns of a dilemma, uncertain whether it's a horror film or a psychological drama -- and it doesn't work especially well as either. – Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK), Apr 18, 2014

Fresh: Juno Temple is sensational in this assured psychological thriller from Sebastian Silva. – Calum Marsh, Little White Lies, Apr 17, 2014

Fresh: Another satisfyingly nasty and well-controlled work from Silva. – Peter Bradshaw, Guardian, Apr 17, 2014

Horrible & Waste of time

Michael Cera's character in the film was different & interesting…but the whole plot was a waste.

And they wonder why people torrent

Nothing about this was good

Mediocre and Irritating

While I expected a psychological thriller, what I got was a cast of horribly unlikeable characters doing things I simply didn't care about. I felt no empathy for anyone in this film…something required to twist the screws and make a thriller PSYCHOLOGICAL. It was simply bad people acting poorly while one in their midst stumbles around sleeplessly. I watched the bad things. I watched the stumbling. It ended. I was relieved that I didn't have to endure anymore of this mess.
