A long running nightmare
4 February 2002 | by (Svendborg, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the film about being caught in a nightmare that never ends. Even a visit to an amusement park frightens the poor man to death. He lives in a world, where people no longer matter, the system is self-sustaining and dehumanising - an almost Kafkan universe. In that world suicide is no longer a taboo, actually people are making a living out of instructing people how to kill themselves. The only question that does not matter, is why people commit suicide, how they do it is so much more important. The setting of this film is important as to how frightening the film is, then usually you connect the setting with pleasant things, now everything is strangely different - and thus scary.
