Yesterday I watched a very interesting film, called 'Uncertainty'.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who convinced me with his brilliant performance during the film '(500) Days of Summer' and Lynn Collins (who is btw quite a feast for the eye), shortly seen in Wolverine and the TV show 'True Blood'.
This film has no problem to go under the term 'breaking the mainstream'. It is not a new idea to show two versions of scenes or two versions of the film within a film. Best examples for repeating scenes with different results in the end are 'Run Lola Run (Lola Rennt)' or the 'Butterfly Effect'.
'Uncertainty' is different though, because they are two different versions of Kate and Bobby's realities within a 24hours interval.
With the flip of a coin, the couple are sent in opposite directions – a delicate drama set in Brooklyn examines familial love, self-discovery, loss and the ordinary choices we make everyday, while Manhattan offers a vastly different tale of intrigue, suspense and murder on the streets of Chinatown.
Brilliant idea and good realised on screen. I loved it.
