A Thousand Kisses Deep

A Thousand Kisses Deep

We are keeping every closer to discovering the Worst Movies of 2012 but today A Thousand Kisses Deep is under the spotlight at number four.

The movie is directed by Dana Lustig and stars Jodie Whittaker as Mia, who witnesses an aged woman leap from a window.

Scattered around the old woman’s broken, lifeless body Mia discovers shredded pieces from a beloved photograph of herself and her former lover Ludwig (Dougray Scott).

In a bid to save her future Mia must revisit her past to confront the man she loves.

Now moving between the present and future is always tricky to get right and sadly in A Thousand Kisses Deep this doesn't work at all.

The jumping around from different time periods is just confusing and why she is able to do this with the aid of David Warner's character and an elevator is also a little unclear - however the different floors of Mia's life is quite a nice touch.

The script is paper thin and so there is very little character development not to mention the relationship between Mia and Ludwig isn't really explored in any great depth.

Similarly Emilia Fox play Mia's rather uncaring mother but you never see her at real loggerheads with her daughter, which is a real shame.

Jodie Whittaker does the best with what she is given but there is no emotional depth to her character and you really don't see the impact that the tough relationship with her mother and Ludwig has done to her.

There are a couple of plot twists that offer some surprises but A Thousand Kisses Deep is a drama that never really gets going.

Sadly A Thousand Kisses Deep is a bit of a mess of a movie that with a script that you can punch holes through and characters that have the potential to be intriguing if someone had bothered to give them some real depth.
