Art-trashy surprise and rarity from Finland!
11 July 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Karvat is truly a triumph of art-trash-avantgardefilms. Not just only in Finland, but in The Whole Wide World! It has it all: unemployment, murder, robbery, rape, a gangster dwarf, false identities, helicopter rides, sleazy parties, sex, femme fatale and ordinary guy as superman. And a magic nut! And alternative ending. Etc. Etc.

It has same kind of trashy magic that Turkish oddball-movies had in the 70's.

Unfortunately Karvat is a black & white-movie. But you can't always get everything.

Braincandy for openminded filmviewers!

It is based on Lionel White's novel 'Obsession'.
