A glamorous American couple, the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Mortensen) and his alluring younger wife Colette (Dunst), arrive in Athens by boat via the Corinth Canal. While sightseeing at the Acropolis they encounter Rydal (Isaac), a young, Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide, scamming tourists on the side. Drawn to Colette’s beauty and impressed by Chester’s wealth and sophistication, Rydal gladly accepts their invitation to dinner. However, all is not as it seems with the MacFarlands and Chester’s affable exterior hides darker secrets. When Rydal visits the couple at their exclusive hotel, Chester presses him to help move the body of a seemingly unconscious man who he claims attacked him. In the moment, Rydal agrees but as events take a more sinister turn he finds himself compromised and unable to pull himself free. His increasing infatuation with the vulnerable and responsive Colette gives rise to Chester’s jealousy and paranoia, leading to a tense and dangerous battle of wits between the two men.
Plot: A thriller centered on a con artist, his wife, and a stranger who try to flee a foreign country after one of them is caught up in the murder of a private detective.

Old-fashioned, decent thriller
‘The to faces of January’ is an old-fashioned, decent thriller with a nice sixties setting and solid acting. Everything about it is immaculate. The plot is intelligent enough: a couple of rich tourists meet a young American tour guide, who accidentally witnesses the husband committing a crime. One thing leads to another, and soon enough the guide is caught in a web of lies and deceit, and it becomes impossible to escape without incriminating himself. The crime story is spiced up by the mutual romantic attraction between the guide and the young wife. There is even a sort of life lesson included: money is the root of all evil.
The movie is well worth seeing, if only because it is nice to see a film that’s not experimental, violent, provocative, filled with special effects or in one way or another trying to be hip or trendy.
I can see why so many reviewers make references to Hitchcock. The film is set in the early sixties, the era in which Hitch made some of his best films like ‘The Birds’ or ‘Marnie’. Still, this film lacks the touch of a genius like Hitchcock. The characters have no extra psychological layers, and the unconventional scenes and themes that make the Hitchcock-movies so special, are absent in this film.
A really good movie, which is made by its stars. While Viggo Mortensen (and Kirsten Dunst for that matter) are very well known, some might still not have been aware of Oscar Isaac to that point. A great actor who’s playing the main role here and has a tough job to make a not really likable person, humane. He finds more than a few moments to make that work though.
Something that is very important for the rest of the movie. If you don’t at least think there is more to him or have some sort of sympathy for his situation (he’s not really hurting people), you will have a tough time enjoying the ride. And it takes you to places. It is predictable at times, but still more than enjoyable. Some might not like the ending, but I think it sums up everything that happened before … and there couldn’t be a better one (imho)
