David Norton (Timothy Hutton) is an accomplished sci-fi writer who is invited to be the speaker at an exotic location. With lots of best-selling books under his belt, and a loving relationship with his girlfriend Jane (Georgia MacKenzie), he couldn’t be happier…that is until he starts receiving odd messages and Jane jumps out of their hotel room window…

Silvia (Lucía Jiménez) is at the same hospital, and unlike Jane she is lucky enough to have survived the fall. But as she tries to leave the hospital, she realizes that some people are after her.

As David and Silvia realize they are in this nightmare of a puzzle together, they try to understand what’s going on and why. Maybe someone is pushing David to write a story he didn‘t sign up for…

The Kovak Box has a very interesting premise, and it does live up to it to a certain extent. But the movie takes huge blows from the casting (excluding Timothy Hutton), the editing and direction in general. Not to mention the overall musical score.  The Gloomy Sunday track is creepy enough. But overdoing the rest of the score is just distracting and annoying- and not thrilling. It is a story that could have made more of an impact if it was told by somebody else. And it makes me wonder-would this be a better story just shot in one language, without the accents, subtitles – and most importantly, subtler actors?

Still, it might be an interesting experience for Timothy Hutton fans.
