      Henry Barnes Guardian Shonky science, flat fiction - this should never have left the lab. Rated: 2/5 May 3, 2012 Full Review Emma Spedding Little White Lies The only thing which would make this film more awkward is watching it with your parents. Rated: 1/5 May 3, 2012 Full Review David Jenkins Time Out Despite a fascinating concept, a gorgeous look and a silky score, 'Clone' is difficult to warm to. Rated: 2/5 Apr 25, 2012 Full Review Allan Hunter The List Pter Szatmri's atmospheric photography of brooding, steely blue skies, bleak deserted beaches and soggy autumn woods is one of the chief virtues in this misbegotten enterprise. Rated: 2/5 May 4, 2012 Full Review Jason Best Movie Talk Clone looks good and may get under your skin - if you can put up with the story's glacial pace, which is so creepingly slow that it's no wonder that the token of the pair's childhood love is a snail.

      inTaiwan M As a concept film, there's not much to expect. All can be anticipated before it's shown. Not nearly half as deep if you find time to ponder upon the subject matter. The seascape is the only thing i enjoyed and like to see again. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Shocking story about finding lost love in the most bizarre way. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Twisted as hell. But you know, Eva Green... I kind of expected it! Woman gives birth to her deceased boyfriend by cloning him and raises him as her son despite being in love with him. It doesn't end well. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Let's not mix words this is an uncomfortable movie to watch and therefore not commercial (spoiler alert for the rest of this review). However this is no reason to write it off. Yes, it is slow paced. BUT for me this an important part of this brilliant film. The subtlety is in the palate....the moments of change are few, sudden, and profound. The acting is top notch. The moral dilemmas are extended to further conclusion in this tale, not spoon fed to you either which is nice. I think it is a worthy addition to the archives. This isn't a straight forward moral dilemma but layered. I think it is exquisite and delicate. Anyone who sees only one plot line is missing a number of points (or maybe I am reading too much into it but I don't think so). I am not surprised it didn't rate well but I don't think that is because it isn't well put together (on the contrary I think it is well put together) - it just isn't commercial, it is also controversial and it is quiet. Controversial in a traditional Oedipal sense - but it does take the concept a bit further culminating in an ultimate rejection, implying that the first true love can never be recreated and that technology doesn't solve that. I very much think this adds to the tale using the implications our technology is presenting to us. There are other layers here about Tommy's (the original Tommy) mother who does not necessarily want Tommy to be cloned? How does she feel about seeing him again? The reactions are mixed but the implications are clear enough. The landscape is so very devoid, friendships are few, and the concepts are left to populate the space in a surrealist's impression of a cloned lost love. I don't think the content appeals to many (including myself) but comments by others about script and pace seem harsh given the point that is being made about the timelessness of love (and clearly the weirdness of love in this case) and loss. I don't know how else to get across the eternal nature of love without the pace of this film (perhaps some are suggesting it could be dealt with in a 30 minute short film). I don't know how else to point out the completeness of the loss without the desolate environment and the pace. By the end there is so much invested in it, when Tommy leaves for the second and final time due to moral conflict Rebecca is left once again but perhaps this time without hope. I thought the point was that love and loss were gives us (perhaps) false hope but it really is fleeting. Again, I think it is a brilliant movie well executed but it is not commercial (not for comfortable viewing by couples, families, pensioners, etc). I think it is definitely worth seeing (I was spellbound like some others - maybe it should be classified horror - if you don't agree with me).... just don't go with your mother or son. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Very interesting concept. Makes you think about ethical questions and it is emotionally complex and fascinating. It is a slow movie, not many action, not really any sex scenes. They really focus on the ethical, psychological and emotional side of the matter. It is an interesting and grotesque movie. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Something about this movie had me really grotesquely fascinated. The whole premise is actually REALLY incredibly uncomfortable and kind of gross, but I couldn't bring myself to stop watching. The ending is one of those horrible, "Why did I bother?" non-endings where the movie just stops, but overall it's actually pretty well made... in a really creepy, inappropriate kind of way.
