On 11 NovemberVeronika decided that the moment to kill herself had—at last! She carefully cleaned the room that she rented in a convent, turned off the heating, brushed her teeth and lay down. She picked up the four packs of sleeping pills from her bedside table. Instead of crushing them and mixing them with water, she decided to take them one by one, because there is always a gap between intention and action, and she wanted to feel free to turn back half way.
Beautiful adaptation, astonishing acting- Gellar shines. When I heard of the movie, I was hoping it was going to be handled with the same deft of hand the author had used with the original incarnation of the work.
I was worried that a movie of this novel would be haphazard, overtly-dramatic and, frankly, a botched effort.
So when Sarah Michelle Gellar became attached to the project I was seriously relieved. Gellar makes this movie. What Gellar does here is employ subtly, strength and honesty. Veronika does this in the novel, and Sarah Michelle Gellar uses her talents to do it with her approach to her role in the film, and the result is an astonishing performance from her.
The movie is slow, but never does it bore, or seem sluggish. If you look at the novel itself: The rest of the cast are equally on top form, Erika Christensen is sad yet charming, Jonathan Tucker and particularly Melissa Leo are great and highly memorable in their supporting roles.
Her acting skills get a full workout here, she excels herself and has, I think, raised the bar for other actors in portraying hopelessness, disillusion and mental illness on screen in a way that perhaps only Bjork did in a similar way with her quietly charming but clearly sad, disillusioned yet hopeful portrayal of Selma in Dancer in the Dark.
Alright things are missing in the movie that may have helped, but what they did here was concentrate on the core idea: They took it in the right direction and truly, this film shines because of it. See it, if not for your love of the novel, but for the performances, you will be rewarded.
