Elias Koteas stars as Noah, an insurance adjuster who helps people who have lost their homes due to tragedy. Going above and beyond his duties, he takes after these individuals with great concern. Part of a loveless marriage, Noah routinely has intimate relations with his clients. His wife, Hera, makes a living as a censor regulator for the government, lonely and detached from her marriage. Honestly, describing the plot of this film is kinda stupid as it is far more about emotion and feeling then narrative- visual poetry if you will. The tone of the film is very mystical and foreboding, creating this atmospheric tension that carries throughout the entire film. Atom Egoyan's 'The Adjuster' is a tough film to quantify as it raises more questions than it actually answers. Some may find this frustrating, but Egoyan's theme of renewal and change is very clear. Perhaps Egoyan is making a statement about a dysfunctional marriage, the bareness and detachment which these individuals live. Even the location of their house, a single home in a vacant landscape suggests the loneliness and desire for renewal in the characters. Atom Egoyan's films are often hard to define with 'The Adjuster' being no different, but if willing, I highly recommend this particular film to David Lynch fans.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
