A Strange Film

Author: Andreas Jacke (a.jacke@gmx.de) from Berlin

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

SPOILER!!!! There is a murder on the street. He like to kills girls in a forest, like tigers do. At one day he meet Michéle and want to kill her.

They drive to the forest and he wanted to start with killing but she wasn't afraid. And than she said she liked it, when he would kill her. This absolute passiv way- this masochistic answer to his sadistic desire is strange enough to stop him. She tries not to escape, she don't want to escape.

Michéle (played by Beate Jensen) is only great - the tiger could come - she is not afraid of him her problems have an other deeper structur like this cheap game of cat and mouse. This is not a Tom and Jerry movie, because Jerry loves a little bit Tom. Really, thats the only answer of his desire, she loves him and later, she knows that he is so not smart as he do all the time and after he killed two other people she killed him. But not with angry. She shows him that he has not the power, that he is the afraid person. She turns the positions, but this film has no much visitors, they don't believe her. I don't ask why.

Refershingly Differently

8/10

Saw this on German TV yesterday. Its a very different/strange film as no one today would behave that way. Its as its from a different universe. Its a low budget anonymous 80's film excellently acted out with no over acting/over emotionality.

Psychology very intriguing and a must for anyone bored of all those over loud/over-emotional/ over-acted Hollywood Cra*

Dark side of personality is handled differently and slow pace of the film is almost surreal. Also good 80's sound track. Basically Boy takes girl to wood to kill but she is not scared ...

Good FILM !!
