As Above, So Below-As High, so Low (2014)
1 Hour and 33 Minutes (93 Minutes)
The only way out is down.
I started to watch the movie with tremendous trepidation. Having seen several of those movies based on a camera and describing the adventures of a group of disparate people between them, expecting to soon be very disappointed. Something was. The movie is quite interesting, with dark atmosphere and eventually the monokamero isn't so irritating. Yes, it has many elements from other films, reminiscent of "The Descent" (2005), based on occult and somewhat mythical concepts but in conclusion is a nicely structured film.
"As Above, So Below" was the first film got permission from the French Government to do the following in the catacombs of Paris ….
The characters aren't annoying, on the contrary, it is quite respectable and plausible. The atmosphere highly claustrophobic, in many places it felt to suffocate and I. The suspense and mystery be built gradually. There are some scary scenes but not throughout the course of the film, and not without some reason.
The film raises and discusses some eternal questions like the soul of man and our inner demons. Whether affect and define our lives? Well-written script, decent direction, great atmosphere, remarkable interpretations. I would suggest not to let pass unnoticed and may give it a chance. It is not original but is something remarkable if you look overall in productions that we saw this year.
