Marina Antunes [Celluloid 07.07.11] movie trailer news thriller drama

The voyeur is a popular trope in film and for obvious reasons, most notably the simple fact that the act of watching someone while they’re not aware that you're watching them is just down right creepy. In life, this is often innocuous, part thrill and part curious interest but in movies, where everything tends to be heightened, a story that centers on a voyeur usually ends badly form someone involved. There's certainly a sense of dread creeping through the trailer for Peter Krištúfek's feature film debut Visible World.

The film stars Ivan Trojan as Oliver, an air traffic controller living in a nondescript neighbourhood of Slovakia. He's lonely and finds some solace and a feeling of belonging by spying on his neighbours. He's particularly infatuated with a young family that lives across the street and from the looks of the trailer, he gets a little too close for comfort.

I'm not expecting One Hour Photo, one of the excellent recent entries into this trope, but the trailer for Visible World suggests some twists and maybe even a bit of violence.
