Young female journalist writing a story on him, cares little for status among her peers.
Quite a philosophical question for a young one.
Status obsessed trophy wife who constantly insults her husband, preying on his neurotic feelings of failure and ridicule.
Every character in this film has a personality disorder.
Just a rough idea i am working on, a large part of this blog is ideas in utero. Edge of Terror is an early nineties Spanish horror film, while it is nothing to write home about. Apart from the adorable child actors in it. While watching it with subtitles it became easier to notice an unusual focus in the script on the psychological problems of the characters.
The lead character, a faded once famous ventriloquist experiencing renewed success, and his interaction with his younger girlfriend and a female journalist covering his return to stardom.
The ventriloquist was paranoid and neurotic that his fame was instead notoriety and that he was a figure of ridicule, and is subject to abuse from his younger wife, who lets him know daily how he has disappointed her.
In contrast the journalist writing an article on him has no interest in fame, is dismissive of peer approval and seeks happiness in her professionalism and life outside work.
The film addresses childrens understanding of mortality, familial loyalty and self defeating personalty traits.
Initially, it seems worth looking at in more detail.
