Storyline

Wanda ist von Berufs wegen grausam. Ihre Spezialitaet: das Erfinden von Fallen fuer ihre Liebhaber/innen. Gregor, der romantische Schwaermer, wird aus seinem Traum gerissen. Justine, die naive Unschuld aus Uebersee, muss lernen, dass auch die Leidenschaft eine Illusion ist. Herr Maehrsch, ein Journalist, will ein Interview mit Wanda und lernt dabei etwas ueber seine verborgenen Wunesche. Nur Caren weiss, worum es geht. Deshalb spielt sie auch bald keine Rolle mehr. (aus dem Prorammheft Max-Ophuels-Preis 1995) "Aufregenderes, subversiveres, seltsameres Kino wird man so bald bei uns nicht mehr zu sehen bekommen." (H.C. Blumenberg, die Zeit) Written by Gregor Erbach <erbach@coli.uni-sb.de>

Audience Cruelty
4 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

In the long history of cinema, probably more than one hundred thousand movies have been made. Of these, there are surely many thousands of clunkers. This one belongs somewhere near the very bottom of the list of clunkers. It is supposed to be about sado-masochism, but the director is apparently the sadist here and the audience the masochists. This film does not even have any titillating value; it's all talk - long, dull conversations. It is very poorly lit, with most of the scenes shot in dark, dingy rooms. The dominatrix is played by Grossman, a German actress who looks like a cross between Patricia Neal and Boy George, with shades of Sean Young.
