'Incarnation' (original title 'Inkarnacija') - Movie Review

I came across this movie because of my ongoing interest in "Groundhog Day" and movies like it. In this case, our protagonist keeps waking up on a bench in the middle of a city square, and is shortly pursued by four masked assassins, who kill him - and he wakes up on the bench again. The question is, of course, "why?" We stay mostly with his POV as he tries to survive and figure out what the hell is going on.

This is a low budget indie movie from Serbia. I spotted some minor continuity errors, but on the whole the production values are good.

One critic called this a cross between "Groundhog Day" and "Run, Lola, Run." That's an apt description, although it implies this one is better than it is (I didn't like "Lola," but I realize it's popular and well thought-out). This one is surreal and, unfortunately, not particularly logical. The reason he's stuck, and the solution, don't make a lot of sense. And for those of you that might be interested in the voyage rather than the answer ... while it's initially intriguing, it gets old and the lack of logic makes sitting it out not worth the effort. Not so much upset I watched it, just ... disappointed.
