Aro Recommended Others, The


USA 2001, 104 minutes
Dir. Alejandro Amenabar
Rating: [M]
Genres: Horror / Paranorma

Topics: Gothic.


Aroview: Ghostly tale in the classic tradition of Henry James, conjuring a spectral fog of unease from a gaunt mansion on the island of Jersey in 1945, presided over by a morbidly religious Nicole Kidman.

Due to a rare medical condition her two children must not be exposed to sunlight, and thus the world of family and servants is shadowed by ever-drawn curtains and locked doors, out of which the children see (or imagine?) menacing ‘others’. Despite a slow start, impressive style eventually succumbs to substance with a satisfying series of twists.
