Directed by: Stephen Daldry
Plot: A nine-year-old amateur inventor, Francophile, and pacifist searches New York City for the lock that matches a mysterious key left behind by his father, who died in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.
Quick comment: A boring and pretentious movie inspired by the 9/11 events. British director Stephen Daldry, known for much better works such as “the hours" (2002), “billy elliot" (2000) and “the reader" (2011), creates a family drama plus detective story which never gets the right way. Let’s wait for him to return to good ones.
