Next level of voyeurism
14 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

If you like 'em weird, you gotta see this one. Nothing makes sense, no character behaves in a normal way and the dialogues are artificial (with an emphasis on 'art'). Although cinematographically not really high standard, the makers of this film are creative enough to make it watchable. Do not expect some cleverly crafted plot lines or carefully directed emotional developments. But do expect some quite interesting, utterly odd but well-acting characters. Outcast city people acting smart but ruining their lives. Well no, forget that, I don't think any serious commentary on daily life is meant to surface here.

People who like this kind of movie should really go see one (any one) of the masterpieces by Dutch film maker Alex van Warmendam.
