I agree with what all below me have said. Its a bit slow, but it keeps you interested. It has a good story line but it just didn't go anywhere & the ending was pretty c**p. It could have been so much better. I watched it with my teen son & we
agreed it was not that bad, we have seen worse.
I actually liked the actors in this, but the ending was lame....could have been good.
A bit slow but not a bad movie, spiked some interest.
Bizzare, not the best actors, slightly confusing but it does draw you in.
Obviously filmed on a very low budget with actors that actually look like normal human beings rather than super-models, Absentia proved to be marginally better than I was expecting. This is not a great film by any standards, but the cast is competent and the storyline fairly engaging until it runs out of steam (and logic) in the final scenes. Verdict : you could do worse on a rainy weekend or boring weeknight.
