Excellent Psychological Thriller With Clever Ending
“Five Fingers” is a great psychological thriller, which takes place mainly inside a torture room. The story is about Martijn (Phillipe), a young Dutch idealist who goes to Morocco to finance a food program from money he has embezzled; his cause is encouraged by his Moroccan girlfriend, Saadia (Haoud). However, as soon as he reaches Rabat, he gets abducted by a terrorist group, led by a dark character played by Lawrence Fishburne, who believes that Martijn has come there with a sinister purpose. They interrogate him harshly, and although in the beginning he tries to explain his mission, he subsequently decides to change his story. What is the truth, then?
Malkin provides us with a carefully crafted claustrophobic setting, with the tension gradually building up as the abductors play cat and mouse with Martijn. In this theatrical atmosphere, all actors give good performances, and are even moderately successful in applying their respective accents (Dutch, Arabic).
However, the best thing of all is the clever ending, which of course I am not going to reveal here. From that alone, the film deserves an 8/10.
I’ll admit, I figured out what was going on very early in the film which detracted from the experience a little. However I have unique interests and circumstances in my life which allowed me to reach my conclusion early. After seeing this film through to the end, you may understand what I mean.
This film is almost completely free of clinches, so for those of you that love to predict during thrillers, this one may be your best opponent. For most viewers this thriller will be entertaining all-the-way through and will keep you calculating until the very end.
I did feel that the dialog at the end of the film was very unnatural and perhaps unauthentic which is why I gave it an 8 instead of a 10. After all, dialog is very important. The bulk of the film was great.
