The Ghost

The Ghost

Really enjoyed the slippers and cocoa pace :) - Slick

5 Points

Viewer Rating:Slick has rated The Ghost rating: 5 Star

Ewan McGregor makes this movie, as does the realism of muttered asides, but the pace, although always engaging, is remarkably slow. So relax and demand nothing, and you will enjoy. Lovely scenery and sense of character with actors and location - the story is a real slow burner, but with enough 'whodunnit' to keep your interest. It never wavers with cheap shots to thrillify the tempo, nor does it stretch the politico plot to disturb the ambience. This is not Inspector Morse, and the better for it. Without the skilful direction it would have been a shambles - instead it is something new, in fact very like reading a book - I'd wager Robert Harris is very pleased with it. As we age speedy indulgences become boring, and this movie avoids that trap. Too few of these movies get made so I'm going out on a limb - 5 stars.
