Fascinating, deeply unsettling, not perhaps wholly successful
I've seen this film twice, some time ago, and been reminded of it by a set of vidcaps appearing on the Net. The plot is strange and very unsettling; the closest I can compare it with is "La Drolesse". And I'm certainly not going to give away any more than that. It frequently subverts expectations as to how relationships are going to develop. For once an English title for a foreign-language film is cleverly thought out- it's deeply ironic in more ways than one.
