Movie Review: The Debt 9/26/11


The Debt

Alrighty, so a few weeks ago, my parents invited me to go to the movies with them, my mom was keeping her ground in seeing The Debt even though I really wanted to see contagion. Long story short we went and saw The Debt. If you haven’t heard of this movie, don’t feel bad, I really didn’t either, I don’t remember any commercials for it or any advertisement honestly. Anyway, the movie is about a woman who used to be a spy in Germany during the Nazi regime. Her daughter wrote a book about her mothers heroic acts, but the mother doesn’t seem too happy, something else is on her mind. I don’t want to give away the ending or why she is like this but the movie generally switches back and forth between the woman now (In her…60s?) and the woman when she was younger (In her mid 20s) and what she had gone through. There is quite the complicated love triangle since she is set up with 2 guys (both of them are also spies) which gets confusing at times.

Even the poster made me go "eh"

For the final review, this movie was OK, really nothing to write home about, it was really slow and because of the time switches it got confusing at parts. They also seemed to leave quite a few things hanging (Which as you know, annoys me). There also seemed to be a few unnecessary sex scenes and very little comedic relief in a movie based at such a sad time. The only really cool part that made the movie interesting was the fight between the older woman and the gynocologist she was seeing (It’s part of the movie, he was apparently an insane killer in the concentration camps) It was a battle of the geriatrics which got intense at times. Wait for this movie to come out in blockbusters or kiosks to watch at home.
