The Walker

  The Walker, it is called a companion for wealthy woman of the world that entertains the ladies of high society and amusement, when her husband once again running high politics or big business, or perhaps both. Carter Page III. (Woody Harrelson) is a companion, and his definition of life, his witty trivia and his preference for men leave it as late followers of lounge lizards appear to Oscar Wilde, although his voice and his Southern accent is not horrible attached precisely the charm of the Walkers make comprehensible.

to the bored ladies of Carter’s clients include primarily Lynn Lockner (Kristin Scott Thomas), Natalie van liter (Lauren Bacall) and Abigail Delorean, known as the Wednesday Club, with which Carter once a week for Canasta besides exchanging gossip, gossip and small virulency. In addition, there’s Carter’s friend Yoglu Emek (Moritz Bleibtreu), an artist of unknown talent and adventurous accent. Thus, it could actually stand in Washington DC, but then Lynn’s secret lover, a lobbyist, found stabbed to death by his girlfriend and the Walker. The smart and ambitious attorney Mungo Tennant (William Hope), both suspected of making as well as Lynn Carter of murder, and Walker has learned that the kindness of his influential clients sometimes can dissolve very quickly in air. Thanks to the help Emek Carter makes itself out to uncover the truth behind the affair and comes across a tangle of intrigue and murky intrigue in the center of American power.

The new film of this year’s chairman of the Berlinale jury is a complex political thriller, which is only half as exciting as it could be. And Woody Harrelson proves to be credible as a hero of the chattering world of women and always well-dressed associates with a toupee as little so that the suspicion imposes that Schrader’s best years are over, and his The Walker is just a tired imitation of his American Gigolo. Pity really, for this noteworthy cast certainly one would have expected more.
