Movie synopsis
THE OTHERS begins with a close-up of a woman screaming. By the time this intense film ends, everyone watching it will be screaming and gasping. Nicole Kidman stars as Grace, a woman raising two children by herself in a creepy mansion. World War II is over, but Grace's husband never returned. Meanwhile, the two children, Anne and Nicholas, must constantly stay in the dark because they are deathly allergic to light. Then one day three people show up to take over for Grace's disappeared staff, and trouble starts to brew. The odd trio--an aging nanny, an elderly gardener, and a young mute girl--seems to have a slightly different agenda than Grace and the children do. But when Anne starts talking to strange, unseen people, the scares start building to an incredible climax.Alejandro Amen�bar's highly stylized English-language debut is one of the better haunted-house films of the past few years. Not only did Amen�bar write and direct the film but he composed the eerie music as well. Nicole Kidman is outstanding as the overprotective mother trying to save her children, while Fionnula Flanagan excels as the nanny with a deep, dark secret. Because the children must remain in darkness, Grace must lock every door behind her, to make sure that the children don't accidentally enter a brightly lit room; it is a marvelous horror-film device that Amen�bar uses to perfection.

Editorial reviews

"...The movie has a busy, throttling intensity that takes off from the elegant fury of Kidman..."
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (08/17/2001)

Box Office - Annlee Ellingson (08/01/2001)

"...Plainly there is more going on here than meets the eye....Sit back and enjoy the deliciously clammy chills..."

"...Kidman is rage to the sixth power....Masterfully shot..."
USA Today - Mike Clark (08/10/2001)

The Others -- a Ghostly Story with Nicole Kidman

Finally, a ghost story of substance!

Grace (Kidman), the mother of two severely photophobic children, Anne and Nicolas, lives in an eerie isolated mansion just after WWII ends. It's quite a burden on a young and attractive mother to keep the sunlight out of every room her children pass through or stay in, let alone keep up a huge estate that she holds out hope for her war veteran husband to return to and keep with her.

After placing an ad in the newspaper for servants, three such servants arrive on the doorstep. When Grace answers the door, she believes they have come to answer the ad and to work for her. Instead, the trio are the former tenants of the mansion with alterior motives.

When Grace's little girl, Anne, keeps talking to what her extra-Catholic home-schooling mother believes is a child's fantasy playmate, Nicolas (who is the younger child) is scared beyond compare. Both children claim that there is another little boy living in the house. They can hardly be disbelieved by their spiritual mother because of the strange sounds in the house indicating something or someone is hiding and dwelling inside of their home.

The interesting point is that the nanny has no difficulty at all believing the children, and the three keep that secret from Grace. As in the classics "Gaslight, with Ingrid Bergman, and "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte," with Bette Davis, Nicole Kidman finds herself in a very similar sort of situation where inanimate objects become animated, voices haunt her, and she begins growing more and more skeptical of reality.

The film is a tension building, haunted house, ghost thriller. Though it is rated PG, I found it more suitable for an adult because this one could give smaller children nightmares. Kidman gives a first rate dramatic performance based upon nothing but her remarkable acting ability, and not her good looks! She is comparable to Bergman and Davis as an actor, that's why I previously mentioned both of them.

Sooner or later she'll see them, then ?

The plot is simple and not especially innovative (your average ghost story), but it seems fresh thanks to strong acting and a well-crafted, eerie atmosphere that rivals that of a Tim Burton film. Nicole Kidman is Grace, a beautiful young married mother who must raise her two children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley) alone in their gigantic (actually, ridiculously large) mansion on a British isle, around the end of WWII. They are alone, for the husband and father has been at war and has not returned, and their housekeepers mysteriously vanished. Suddenly, a trio of friendly caretakers arrive one day. Mrs. Mills (Fionnula Flanagan) is the amiable old lady, Lydia (Elaine Cassidy) is a mute young girl, and Mr. Tuttle (Eric Sykes) is the not-so-social gardener. However, there is a strange, arcane facet to the trio; they have little background and had no way of knowing that Grace was offering positions at her manor. Aside from this, Grace must deal with her children, who have a deadly allergy to light, which means that the house must be dark all the time, allowing for a spooky dark, shadowy ambience. Anna and Nicholas, most importantly, have been visited - by a family of ghosts. Noises - crying, piano music, and running - have been heard. And curtains that stop light from entering the house are opening and closing by themselves. The film is based around Grace's efforts to solve the enigma.

The Others

Decidedly one of the more genuinely creepy films I've seen. There are no guts, and gruesome monsters here. Just a completely believable mother (played by Nicole Kidman), and her two children in an English mansion, during WWI. The children have a life threatening allergy to sunlight, so the entire house must be kept dark. This lends itself to an automatic feeling of foreboding, which is intensified when the girl begins speaking of "Victor," a little boy supposedly responsible for mysterious goings-on within the property. Mix in a thick fog which blankets the house, and the three kindly staff people which help keep up the place, and there are some parts of this movie that will send that icy finger up your spine. You never really see anything: it's just that constant uneasiness that something is not quite right here. So if you're looking for a hack-'em-up gorefest... The Others isn't for you. But if you like a slow, eerie build-up, and a steady edge-of-seat chiller, this is one film that fits the bill. Definitely worth owning.

As shocking as the Sixth Sense!

Nicole Kidman plays a mother who is abandoned by her husband, who is away at war, and left raising her two small children in a huge mansion. The children start to believe that the house is haunted and it does'nt take long for Kidman to think it too. This movie has all the right stuff for a horror film. Dark, creepy, and twisted. One of my favorite horror movies.
