Nicholas Hallberg (Michael Wagner) is an eccentric entrepreneur who has
become a little too self-absorbed in his theories about psychological
healing devoid of all distractions - he's not any expert but knowledgable
enough on the subject and taken cues from isolation chambers as well as
certain experimental drugs ... and of course, he's rich, which helps
immensely with the set-up of his experiment.
Amelia Anderson (Rebecca
Finch) is an ambitious student who wants to learn more about Hallberg's
methods, and expose them if need be. And for that, she agrees to go on a
submarine journey with Hallberg, as his (rather rational) theory is under
water with no way of escape and cut off from means of communication like
the internet, one might find the right, isolated enviroment for some
There are just a few problems, for one, Hallberg himself as the
conductor of the experiment might carry a bit too much emotional baggage
to remain wholly objective and might have ulterior motives, Amelia might
feel threatened by Hallberg (and it's left open whether she has any reason
to) and might be too unstable for the experiment to begin with, there
might be sexual tensions that come with the situation almost naturally,
and the setting might not be as immune to outward influences as
anticipated. And thus, what could have become a ground-breaking experiment
ends in utter disaster ...
A very interesting psycho thriller
that despite its rather unusual setting doesn't aim for spectacle but
centers its conflict solely on its two main characters - to great effect,
as not only are both rather nicely developed over the course of the movie,
and they're greatly interwoven with the underlying mystery. And an
interesting yet subtle directorial approach and very solid central
performances make this a pretty cool genre movie for sure.
