A Ghost Writer (Ewan McGregor) is hired to help former British Prime Minister Adam Lang(Pierce Brosnan) finish his memoirs.

The Ghost also uncovers that there may be a few facts in Lang’s memoirs that may... read more

The funny thing about this flick is that I wasn't really planning to see it but since there was not much else to see, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, it turned out to be a pretty good flick, much better than I expected. On the other hand, Roman Polanski has always been one of my favorite directors so I should have known better and he didn't disappoint me here. First of all, the... read more

The Ghost Writer directed by Roman Polanski starts out with the apparent suicide of a writer who was writing the autobiographical memoirs for a former British Prime Minister, played effectively by Pierce Brosnan. Right away with an indication from the tone of the score we know it probably wasn't a suicide and that the main character is going to spend a good part of the movie trying to figure out w... read more

Description: When a successful British ghost writer, THE GHOST, agrees to complete the memoirs of former British Prime Minister ADAM LANG, his agent assures him it’s the opportunity of a lifetime. But the project seems doomed from the start—not least because his predecessor on the project, Lang’s long-term aide, died in an unfortunate accident. The Ghost flies out to work on the project, in the middle of winter, to an oceanfront house on an island off the U.S. Eastern seaboard. But the day after he arrives, a former British cabinet minister accuses Lang of authorizing the illegal seizure of suspected terrorists and handing them over fo ... (more)

A Complete review of Roman Polanski's work (21 movies items)

" Cast : Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall, Timothy Hutton, James Belushi, Eli Wallach What was it about? A ghostwriter hired to complete the memoirs of a former British prime minister uncovers secrets that put his own life in jeopardy. My two cents: The directing was quite amazing and the cast was also very good, especially Pierce Brosnan who shows he is definitely an actor we should reckon with. Above all, I thought the mood created created by Polanski wa"

“I really loved this film. The suspense was built up from start right up until the shocking ending, which is not surprising for a Roman Polanski film, but this shows the director at the top of his game. The cast, which includes Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan and Olivia Williams, all give top performances and the script is very clever and keeps the pulse racing. I was completely taken away by the complexity and entertainment value of this film, and it certainly would place in my 'Top 5 films list' of 2010.” read more

"Katsottu: 17.4.2012 Polanski ei näemmä vieläkään petä. Lukuisia hyviä elokuvia urallaan ohjannut mestari alkaa olla jo vanhaa kaliiberia, mutta visuaalista särmää työskentelyssä on edelleen runsaasti. Haamukirjailija alkaa hitaasti, mutta kehittää saman tien tarinan ympärille kutkuttavan mysteerin. Roolisuoritukset ovat mainioita ja niiden ansiosta elokuva jaksaa kiinnostaa loppuun asti. Myös yllätyksellisyys tarjoaa varsin hyvän vaihtoehdon, näin nykypäivän kliseeparven kes"
