astonishing piece of film, 7 June 2004
Author: miguel corvo ( from vilnius, lithuania

i saw this movie some years ago for the first time. the world became another thing since that day, i was a youngster - i had no idea that there was still an industry capable of producing such a bizarre movie.

just see it and seek (and think) yourself for an interpretation.

in country you will never find out what it is, in a place you can never find out where it is, there is a war that no one really cares about explaining what it is. the burgoise seems to search for a place to hide themselves, they enter then into the bunker palace hotel where there is comfort and they can be safe.

then the movie starts...
