By IRA Ross on May 15 2004
Format: VHS Tape
I have never seen a more sympathetic portrayal of a serial killer. As played by Bob Hoskins, Mr. Hildich is a fatherly, sweet, gentle, and lonely man who is also conflicted, disturbed, and reluctantly evil. He also suffers from a lingering mother complex which is apparently responsible for his dirty, horrible little secrets. With a history of rescuing poor "lost girls" who are impregnated, then abandoned by their boy friends, he cannot help but try to keep them near him forever. Hildich's latest rescuee is Felicia, a young Irish girl with a problem similar to "the others."
Hoskins plays Hildich with a quiet intensity that is both creepy, scary, but never less than sympathetic. I often felt that he needed rescuing as much as Felicia. The scenes where Hildich, who is ironically a catering manager, watches old videos of his mother, a famous French television chef, preparing one of her famous recipes while he follows along are by turns funny and nauseating. Norman Bates would probably identify with Hildich. Thrown into the mix is a Bible carrying rescue worker and missionary who promises peace in the great hereafter to those who would only just believe. In the end her naive message save no one, not even the hapless Hilich.
There is a haunting and beautiful melody played throughout the film called "The Faith In The Heart Of A Child" which gives the simple message that if only children were more loved and respected for themselves there would be no need to rescue them when they become lonely, screwed up and loveless adults.

Okay, now I'm one who loves a good story. Even if the storytelling may be a bit slow, it's all about the message the film is trying to convey to its audience. But this movie? This movie is an UNBELIEVABLE borefest. I kept waiting and waiting for this movie to pick up from its sedated state and it never did. All that happened was me falling asleep. About an hour and 20 minutes into the movie I found myself wanting to stop it, but a part of me made me finish watching. I told myself "something is bound to happen, the ending will be shocking!" But then once I realized that would never happen, I kept it running because I figured "I've gone through so much, I have to finish this, or else it will all be for nothing." Nothing about this is shocking. Even if should be remotely shocking whatsoever, that aspect of it gets lost in the fact that it is so BORING. Slow movies are great, as long as they have something entertaining in them, or build up to something. This movie had nothing to offer and one of the most dull climaxes I've ever seen. I gave it a chance, and Felicia's Journey feels more like a Wisconsin Death Trip. Avoid, unless you are an insomniac and want to go to sleep.

"Felicia's Journey" is an intriguing psychological thriller about a pregnant young Irish girl who goes to England looking for the father of her baby and finds instead a psychotic, middle-aged man disguised as savior. The brilliant Canadian director, Atom Egoyan, literally isn't quite at home with the material or the location [it was shot in Great Britain]. Consequently, the movie is not quite as good as my two favorites of his, "The Sweet Hereafter" and "Exotica", though it shares that same fascinating, hypnotic quality I so much admire.
As Joe, a man whose facade conceals some dreadful secrets, Bob Hoskins is awesome. He seems so innocent and well-meaning until you notice how quickly the look in his eyes can go from benign to malignant. Elaine Cassidy is just about perfect as Felicia, the young girl. She gives her dignity and purpose, portraying her as a good girl who doesn't have a clue as to how to deal with her problems. She lets Joe lure her in, not because she is stupid, but because she is innocent and unworldly.
This is not a commercial movie. One of the main reasons is that Joe is not an over-the-top villain. He is all too similar to lots of people we see every day. He does appear to be a bit furtive and secretive at times, but not so much so that anyone would suspect his dreadful other side. He is not over there in some special place we pretend madmen live in. He's just the nice man who lives next door. We can't distance ourselves from him easily, and that's an uncomfortable feeling. We are much more at home with the likes of Hannibal Lecter, who safely exists only in a book or a movie.
Despite its faults, "Felicia's Journey is much better than the average thriller, in particular because its images stick with you long after you've seen it.
Since I have not read the novel the movie is based on, I can't comment on how the two compare.

To start with, I have to say that if you haven't seen this film, PLEASE read William Trevor's novel first. You must experience Trevor's luminous writing before enduring what Atom Egoyan has done to it.
That being said, there are a lot of good things about this film. The cast is superb -- Elaine Cassidy is perfect as Felicia, and a better choice than Bob Hoskins as Mr. Hilditch I can't imagine. Both of them turn in memorable performances here.
The thing that makes it impossible for me to give this film a higher recommendation is Egoyan's inexplicable urge to add elements to Trevor's story. Without writing a 'spoiler' review, I'll just mention that the entire 'videotape' take on Hilditch's 'memory lane', as well as the cooking videos he watches are products of Egoyan's imagination -- they were not present in the novel, and it certainly didn't lack for their non-existence. It annoys me that Egoyan couldn't leave well enough alone -- and it makes me wonder if he succumbs to this temptation with every film he's done. I'm about to read Russell Banks' novel 'The sweet hereafter' to find out...
