Five strands woven into a tight thread
The story of “The Dead Girl” is broken into five chapters – each focusing on a female character connected in some way to a corpse dumped beside a highway. The first deals with a socially inept young woman, who happens upon the body of a murdered girl during an early morning walk. Somehow the self esteem she gains from the discovery gives her the strength to escape from a constrained life. The second segment concentrates on a female pathologist whose older sister had mysteriously disappeared some years earlier. During her examination of the victim in the morgue, she becomes convinced the corpse is that of her missing sister. The third narrative fragment relates how a neglected wife handles the unexplained absences of a sinister husband. The main character in the fourth episode is the dead woman’s mother, who arrives to identify the body, meets her daughter’s room-mate – and in the midst of grief has an unexpectedly hopeful encounter. The last chapter tells the story of the murdered girl’s last day, and how she came to meet her killer.
Needless to say the film is no comedy. The excellent direction, strong characters and sensitive performances combine to lift it above the bleakness of its subject matter, and each of the episodes is intense and contains surprises. If one were being picky, one might argue that the placement of the victim’s meeting with her murderer at the end of the film brings it to an unnecessarily downbeat conclusion – but either way, the story has a powerful emotional resonance.
A Nutshell Review: The Dead Girl
The story brought memories of an old television cult series called Twin Peaks. A dead, blonde girl’s body is being discovered in the grasslands of an idyllic village, and this provides the catalyst for the movie as the plot unravels to tell of the stories that centers around that discovery. In summary, it had a total of 5 short stories all inter-weaved through a fragmented timeline, and a host of characters in those stories who have one way or another, played a part in the girl’s life, during when she was alive, and after.
The Stranger stars Toni Collette as the woman who discovered the body, and how she gets thrust into the media limelight, yet yearning for that freedom to flee from her domineering mother. The Sister tells of a pathologist’s inability to fight on and continue her family’s believe that her missing sister is still out there somewhere, and not to throw in the towel and give up hope. The Wife will manage to rile you up, with the story of a neglected wife, and her hopes for reconciling with her estranged husband, who prefers gallivanting late at night to spending time with her, and of course, with her decision to protect her husband’s secrets to losing him for sure altogether when revealed. And The Mother reminds you that a mother’s love knows no bounds. Hurt by her daughter’s disappearance, the worse case scenario happens, and Mum has got to heal old wounds. It’s a touching short, and I thought one of the most powerful amongst the rest. And rounding it up, like the last pieces of a jigsaw, is The Dead Girl’s story, where we see a foul mouthed Brittany Murphy bringing it all on.
The movie had excellent performances all round by the ensemble cast, and it doesn’t have any big bang moments to shock and awe. It’s a dramatic story, rather than a mystery- thriller-whodunnit. I was glad that it didn’t go down the torture porn route, although it could have, but didn’t need to. Leaving it where it is will already allow your imagination to run wild what the outcome will be. However, this might serve as a let down to some as it might seem that it failed to want to bridge the missing gap in the timeline. Fragmented timeline and multiple, parallel stories do seem to be the rage these days (Babel anyone?), but it all boils down to how much of a story you can make out of a single drop in the pond. That’s what The Dead Girl feels like, with the stories the inevitable ripples that fan out.
You Are My Sunshine looks like a song very popularly used in end credits, and so far I had thought that it was a simple childhood nursery song. But when used in this context, it had a profound depth telling of longing and missing, that everyone has their own sunshine that they hold very dear to. Recommended movie, especially if you’re into the fragmented timeline fad.
