Surreal German madness.
20 January 2015 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Freak Orlando" by German documentary maker Ulrike Ottinger is easily one of the most surreal movies I have ever seen.I can compare this relentless orgy of surrealism to the cinema of Alejandro Jodorovsky and John Waters.The film obviously lacks cohesive story-line.It's a series of bizarre vignettes which take place in eccentric worlds filled with freaks and Siamese twins.There is plenty of eccentric humor in "Freak Orlando" and lots of weird theatrics.The central character of Orlando is played by Magdalena Montezuma,but there is also Delphine Seyring in the cast whom I remember from wonderfully stylish lesbian vampire flick "Daughters of Darkness"(1971).Overall,"Freak Orlando" is a must-see for the lovers of bizarro cinema.5 Siamese twins out of 10.Not for the easily bored like I am.
