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>

Weird...
12 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

The only reason I tracked down this movie is because of Udo Kier... And I have to say, he's done some really really bizarre roles... Including this one...

All the women in the movie look like men, or sound like them... So it's pretty funny. But the movies not funny, not really. Except the guy who wants Mistress to use him 'as a toilet' hahaha.

The movie is bizarre.. it's haunting. The colors are.. I don't know, it just adds to the weirdness. The ending sort of left you hanging, but I did watch it again before I commented here, and I guess it ended at a nice place.

Udo Kier. Any movie with Udo, I can't leave a bad comment... lol. He talks German all through the movie, which I like... he has the BEST voice in the world... He's mistreated in the movie by, Wanda, the Mistress who owns the 'GALLERY', and it's sad! He did good in his role, I guess, he never gave any expression, or anything...

It's not the type of movie I'd watch at a party or anything, but it's definately not the worst I've ever seen...
