very unusual film that is well worth watching
29 September 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

As far as I am aware this is a 1976 Yugoslav film, Izavitely, translated on my copy as The Rat Saviour, a certain other film site would also seem to bare this out. In any event, this is a very hard to find and very unusual film that is well worth watching. Bit of a Kafkaesque tale involving a plague of rats. But there is more to this than that and although there are allusions to Invasion of the Body Snatchers, this is a unique film and if I say that there is some overlap with some of the humans and some of the rats and that I watched this with German dialogue, to great effect, you will probably get my drift. Stunning opening credits usher in a dark and moody film that doesn't once let up. Lead actor reminds a little of a young Polanski but all the cast perform well and the shadowy cinematography is excellent. The cover illustration shown is rather misleading, although the scene briefly appears. My own copy has enlarged the inset detail top right, which is still rather fanciful. Still, never mind, the film is certainly just that little bit different.
