mesmerising performance of that man
6 October 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The impact of this film is probably due more to the presence of Klaus Kinski than to the efforts of director Serge Moati, although I see the latter is still working albeit in TV and documentaries. This seems to have been one of his rare cinematic opportunities and he certainly gave it a good stab. Basically this is a very simple story of murder and revenge dressed up with some surrealism and Mr Kinski. I was not at all sure a lot of the time just how scripted or improvised some of the actor's contribution was, particularly his excellent work with the young girl. Kinksi towers over this film, dominating every scene he is in and that is most of them. The movie is well shot with some interesting visuals and a crazy sub plot that seems to involve some death cult. It doesn't race along but so unusual are some aspects that our interest is maintained and then, of course, there is the mesmerising performance of that man.
