I don't mind a piece of cinema which leaves it all, and I mean all, to the viewer to make something of it, but some hidden point(s) to it, would be nice, no matter how deeply buried they are.
This is a movie without a story, without a discernible point and without any entertainment value. What it shows are seemingly random events leading towards a climatic point in time and leave it to a Buddhist to decide whether or not coincidence has anything to do with it.
After 40 minutes into it, I couldn't take it any longer and proceeded the film at 4 speed while I entertained my cat with a loss string hanging from my sweater. It was obviously having a better time than I was.
Only recommended to those who've set out to watch the complete oeuvre of this film making genius which is Michael Haneke.
