Unlike any film I've watched before
6 February 2003 | by See all my reviews

German director, Theile, did a great job of utilizing Hollywood with his filming techniques. The first thing that came to mind when watching this movie was ?Twilight Zone.? The camera movements, the angles, and the close-ups were very reminiscent of an old sci-fi movie. Watching Rosemarie forty-five years after it was first debuted was refreshing. There aren't many films with the same amount of character uniformity these days. Like the way in which the business men silently walked through scenes in queues. And how they all slowly drive the same car through the streets, wear the same clothes, and all have personal frustrations that Rosemarie exploited. All these traits added an eeriness to the film. The recurring, whirring sound effects of the revolving door were laughable. The two most bothersomme things were that it was obvious that many (if not all) of the street scenes were not shot on location, but rather on a closed studio set (though this made the scenes automaton-esque) and the subtitles weren't very precise to what the characters were really saying.

Perhaps I have little patience, but I was ready to leave towards the middle of the movie. Or perhaps I have little patience for movies or I didn?t like the sci-fi feel. But I stayed and found myself to be intrigued with the circular ending of the film?as the final scene reminds the viewer of the opening scene and leaves them questioning, 'Will she meet the same fate'?
