LOOSELY CONSTRUCTED DRAMA
24 March 1999 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Often at random told, unbalanced and as a result not easy to follow sensitive drama; Lilienthal aims for atmosphere rather than story telling. Because of the loose structure this aiming for atmosphere is limited to individual scenes rather than the film as a whole; but he does it well. In this he is supported by sharp cinematography and good cast.
