Ben (Colin Firth) was in a bad car accident that killed his wife. As the story opens he's in the hospital, coming out of a coma. He goes back to his creepy apartment building where he is the only resident. He cannot come to terms with his wife's death and hallucinates about her constantly. To make things worse, he finds himself the prime suspect in the brutal murder of a famous rock singer.
Yikes. This is a bad movie. It attempts to be an art film delving into the mind of a mentally ill man, but falls completely flat and is just one long, confusing, and very unpleasant movie. We never know if what we are seeing is real or imagined; it's too hard to follow and totally repellant. Firth does the best he can with the terrible script but I didn't like or care about his character at all. I
f you're afraid of creepy crawly creatures, this is not the movie for you; the same goes if you're looking for Firth to be a debonair heartthrob. Not recommended.
