Faces in the Crowd

Released 2011 Rating 15 in UK
Director Julien Magnet Writer/s Julien Magnet
Starring Milla Jovovich, Julian McMahon, David Atrakchi, Marianne Faithful
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A young woman returning home from a night out with friends witnesses a murder taking place, and is chased by the killer. In the resulting struggle she falls from a bridge into a river, hitting her head on the way down. She is rescued but now suffers from Prosopagnosia (face blindness). Even her own image in the mirror is different, so how will she identify the killer, now on her trail?
Content Several scenes of murders being carried out, the killer using a cut-throat razor. The changes of the faces are quite un-nerving, and lots of tension.
A View It made me realise how little attention I really pay to what is on screen. Is that a different face, or the same face? I kept having to ask myself. But quite creepy, and worth a view if you have the time to spare.
