A dark suburban fable exploring the nature of evil in unexpected places, Borgman follows an enigmatic vagrant who enters the lives of an upper-class family and quickly unravels their carefully curated lifestyle. Charming and mysterious, Camiel Borgman seems almost otherworldly, and it isn't long before he has the wife, children and nanny under his spell in a calculated bid to take over their home life. However, his domestic assimilation takes a malevolent turn as his ultimate plan comes to bear, igniting a series of increasingly maddening and menacing events.
A vagrant meances the life of an upper-class family in this dark fable.
Cast: Jan Bijvoet, Tom Dewispelaere, Sarah Hjort Ditlevsen, Hadewych Minis
officially a new favorite of mine. I wish it went on for ever.
A little slow for some but very psychological based through to the end. Doesnt give anything away too quickly, very well done film. I particularly like movies with the constant wtf is actually happening deal going on & this one delivers that very tastefully. If youre looking for excessive gore or shock this probably wont satisfy, but otherwise I highly recommend it.
really weird and very creepy at the same time, keeps you guessing...
More creepy than anything but still a little in the scary when you think about it range.
I didn't find this movie so great but to each, it's own right? The one thing I did not catch or maybe did not understand was why he did this and who really was he? If it is left to our own conclusions I would say he was evil and of course evil loves followers history has taught us so and there is always some sick fuck that is ready to follow. They were his slaves/demons. He tapped on what was already there. That's true evil.
