crimes in a surreal world
12 August 1999 | by (vienna) – See all my reviews

i really like surreal films, but also i don't understand most of them. i never understood the sense of the breakscenes in the forest/sand. the whole film seems to move in slow motion, it seems like the air would be water. you have to wonder the whole time: "what is this film about". unfortunately it was shown in german tv at 2:00 at night and i think it will never be shown there again, but i can only say: "watch it, if you can! - and than tell me what it is about!"
