The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS FILM - TB

Di­rected by Mar­jane Sa­trapi . Star­ring Ryan Reynolds, Anna Ken­drick, Gemma Arter­ton, Jacki Weaver

A dis­turbed man talks to his dog and his cat. Work­ing from a clever and bleak script by Michael Perry, Sa­trapi utilises the same whim­si­cal flair she brought to Chicken with Plums to more un­set­tling ef­fect. But The Voices makes for an air­less ex­pe­ri­ence. The an­i­mal voices, all per­formed by Reynolds, sug­gest Look Who’s Talk­ing for Dex­ter fans. The film of­fers no light­ness, no re­lief, only grim psy­chopa­thy with flashes of DayGlo colours. 16 cert, lim re­lease, 103 min
