Aloys is an interesting indie movie that I’d imagine someone like Paul Thomas Anderson would absolutely love. The performances from the two leads were both well done.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Aloys (GEORG FRIEDRICH) is a cold, distant private investigator who worked with his recently deceased father. He never takes a personal approach, instead choosing to film his subjects from a distance with his video camera. On the bus ride home from the funeral, a depressed Aloys drinks himself to unconsciousness. When he wakes up the next morning in the bus, he finds his camera and the tapes of his subjects are all missing. A short time later a female voice calls him, telling him that she stole his tapes, watched them, and plans to send them to the filmed subjects. The mysterious woman (TILDE VON OVERBECK) pulls him into a mind game known as “telephone walking”. Fascinated by her voice, Aloys discovers an imaginary universe that allows him to break out of his isolation.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5


No features were included.

 

VIDEO – 3.5/5, AUDIO – 3.25/5


Ammo Content releases Aloys onto DVD presented with a 16×9 enhanced 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and given a fine if not flawed Dolby Digital 5.1 track which does provide okay dialogue levels but poor sound design.

OVERALL – 3.0/5


Aloys is an interesting indie movie that I’d imagine someone like Paul Thomas Anderson would absolutely love. The performances from the two leads were both well done and although it’s not perfect, still worthy of checking out.
