Scientist couple Viktor (Danny Huston) and Elizabeth Frankenstein (Carrie-Anne Moss) and a handful of fellow scientists have created an artificial human being they dub Adam (Xavier Samuel) - and Adam especially responds to Mrs Frankenstein, whom he soon calls mama. But Adam's cells decay just a bit too rapidly, so Viktor decides to put him down - out of mercy, he thinks ... but faced with this, Adam escapes and hides in the wilderness to escape recapture - but the Frankensteins are much too busy to work on perfecting their method to create life to really give much thought on him, so he's left to fend for himself while his skin is showing more and more rashes, and his body is rotting away. Eventually, he dares to go among people, but his first interaction with a little girl he almost drowns accidently but then saves leads to atercations with the law, which he gets out of thanks to superhuman strength and almost-invulnerability. Eventually, Adam makes friends with blind bum Eddie (Tony Todd), who teaches him the ways of life and actually tries to hook him up with a prostitute with a heart of gold (Maya Erskine) ... who only freaks out when she sees Adam's grotesque sex organ, which leads to him killing her. Then, with the hooker's smartphone to guide him, Adam sets out to be re-united with his "mother" Elizabeth Frankenstein again, leaving behind a trail of terror mostly due to run-ins with the law - but the reunion is bound to end in tragedy!

 

Bernard Rose's version of Frankenstein is a highly original one, inasmuch as it more than any earlier version does side with the monster, and the horrors of the movie are much more those that happen to him than those he, unable to understand the ways of the world, dishes out - and Rose is capable enough a director to make these horrors really tangible and thus prevent this from just being a sappy story of a misunderstood youth (which Adam essentially is). He's of course helped by Xavier Samuel's very involving performance, leading a truly first rate cast.

Totally worth a look!
