Details Limited Release: Sep 25, 2009; Rated: R; Length: 90 Minutes; Genre: Drama; With: Antonio Banderas and Liam Neeson; Distributor: Image Entertainment

The Other Man is self-conscious, overproduced, overacted Euro-marital hoo-ha in which a husband (Liam Neeson) uncovers the existence of another man (Antonio Banderas) in the life of his wife (Laura Linney), who disappears one day.

Red high-heeled footwear is involved, as is travel to Lake Como — lucky actors! For a much better use of Neeson and Linney as Mr. and Mrs., check out Kinsey. C–
