COLONIA (2015): For The Tension & Suspense

The cult setting of Colonia, the latest movie starring Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl is one of the things that drew me to the film. It’s probably wise to add that my interest is much like the way that most people are curious about the mind of a serial killer, and definitely less like ‘let me join a sect and see’

Well paced and acted, my favourite things about director Florian Gallenberger’s movie are the tension and suspense which builds up nicely till the very end. Another highlight is the information about the dynamics of power and the madness that often takes place within the walls of cults such as Colonia Dignidad.

As you watch this movie, you may experience feelings of gratitude. First because, you’re not trapped inside a cult and second, you’ve never had to join one that may be impossible to escape, so as to try and save your risk taking, ‘act now, think later’ could be smarter boyfriend.

I’m glad that I can finally say I’ve seen Emma Watson in a film I like; a film other than Seth Rogen’s This Is The End (2013), which I love. In case you were wondering, ‘what about Harry Potter?’ Yeah, I’m not into those films, at all.

Watch it because it’s gripping.

Happy Film Loving 🙂

COLONIA (2015): New Trailer Starring Emma Watson & Daniel Brühl

Directed by  Florian Gallenberger, Emma Watson’s latest film sees her join a religious sect in search of her abducted boyfriend (Daniel Brühl)…

I like this edit of the trailer far more than I did the original. There aren’t many films starring women as the person who has to orchestrate the rescue of a lover, so you understand how Colonia can be quite appealing .

I’ll be cheering for what will hopefully be a successful escape for Watson and Brühl’s characters.  Also, I’m currently looking for another movie to add to my list of ‘starring Emma Watson favourites’. As a non-Harry Potter fanatic, the only film currently on said list is This Is The End (2013), a movie I love of course, but said list could do with growing.

Colonia Release Dates: April 15th, 2016 (US)…

Happy Film Loving 🙂
