Gods are famous of senseless actions, but this one went too far
18 July 1999 | by (Törökbálint, Hungary) – See all my reviews

When I watched the film I wondered, how the plot could reveal the reason behind the first massacre, since all the events were based on that. I wondered till the end. And beyond. I still wonder. Maybe part II contains something which could give this plot some sense... I hardly can imagine, but who knows... If you look for visuality without any logic or reason, don't miss this film. Your brains won't overheat of thinking. If you need a plot, avoid like plague. It doesn't have any.
