Great photography and lack of control...
16 April 2000 | by (Istanbul) – See all my reviews

As it was written in the festival brochure "Animals" has breathtaking scenes. Also it is quite entertaining and witty in the beginning, but after the first quarter it turns into a long, artsy European TV commercial. DiJiacomo creates few interesting characters but they don't come alive as the overmystified plot wanders aimlessly. We can't even sympathize with Henry's passion for Fatima and his suffering becomes unconvincing.
