Review: Adapted by its director, Hossein Amini, from a little known novel by Patricia Highsmith The Two Faces of January turns out to be a highly satisfying tale of murder most foul very typical of Miss Highsmith. OK, so its not on the same level as The Talented Mr Ripley, Plein Soleil or Strangers on a Train but with its emphasis on plot rather than action its still a cut above a good many of todays so-called thrillers. Also typical of Highsmith is that the principal relationship in the film is between two men, (though one of them is married while the other starts to fall for the wife). The married one is Viggo Mortensen, apparently rich and touring Greece but also harboring a dark secret. The wife is pert little Kirsten Dunst and the man who falls for her is tour guide Oscar Issac. At first Issac thinks he has the upper hand, swindling Mortensen out of a few thousand dollars only to realize quite early in their relationship that he has bitten off more than he can chew. After awhile Dundsts character becomes almost redundant as the men start to play power games with each other. Whereas the male/male relationships in other Highsmith adaptations were mostly homo-erotic with at least one of the characters clearly drawn as gay. Here the relationship is meant to evoke a father and a son, (Issacs character has issues with his dead father). This slightly dilutes the dark heart of the picture. Movies like The Talented Mr Ripley and Strangers on a Train worked as well as they did because the villain was clearly homosexual and psychopathic and you never knew where his temper and jealous rages might take him. In this movie Mortensen is undoubtedly the jealous straight guy while Issac is just too nice, (hes too sweet to be a real con-man). Still, all three leading players are excellent and Amini tightens the screws very nicely as the film progresses. Filmed, for the most part, in Greece it will also prove something of a boost for the Greek Tourist Board this summer.
