The dark thriller from the Spanish director behind 'The Others' and 'The Sea Inside' stars Emma Watson and Ethan Hawke. The plot revolves around a father who is accused of a crime he has no memory of committing.Alejandro Amenabar's 1996 debut 'Tesis' was a smartly crafted, intelligent, claustrophobically moody film about the elasticity of what we call "the truth." Much the same can be said of 'Regression', his third English-language film and a reversion of sorts to Amenabar's cinematic origins. The film is satisfying as a compact horror-tinged psychological thriller. But it's most interesting beneath its polished, doomy surface, where complex concerns about the cultural origins of our fears are skillfully explored. The result is a film "which can and will be enjoyed on at least two levels, and which reconfirms Amenabar's transnational reputation as perhaps Spain's predominant American indie director".
