Nerve is a dark, emotive, psychological drama that looks into the inner struggle of a man who cannot get past the recent events of his life. The film follows a man, Jakob Evans (Christian Clark), who has just suffered an emotional breakdown from the recent death of his wife in a car accident. But Jakob’s loss and pain runs deep as he claims to have found her in bed with another man just before her death. Angry, heart-broken and confused, Jakob’s frustration escalates as he struggles with questions about her affair that he cannot get past. With his inability to accept her death and her infidelity, Jakob decides his only chance at closure is to find the man she was sleeping with to help him comprehend what they shared. With the help of Grace (Georgina Haig), a promiscuous troubled girl, Jakob starts to search for the pieces of the puzzle to lead him to his wife’s lover. But as Jakob becomes more and more obsessed with finding him, his motive evolves from trying to understand to revenge while Grace quickly starts to realize that Jakob’s story does not add up.
Nerve had me hooked from the opening credits. Sebastien Guy has crafted a movie that is achingly beautiful in it’s gritty, edgy form. Cinematically, it is a feast for the eyes with camera moves that give us hints along the way. The story is a plausible premise and the characters are well drawn with character arcs that are distinguishable. Sebastien is a master story teller. The music was especially flawless, the attention to detail that drove the entire piece emotionally. Sebastien Guy has created a cinematic wonder, this movie will stay with you. Let’s hope this is the first of a long line of films by Sebastien Guy! Written by binghambartee
