An interesting look into love cults
30 April 2002 | by (Reykjavik, Iceland) – See all my reviews



This film is outstanding! By that I mean that it stands out from other movies I've seen. This perplexing image drawn of love cults in this movie is grossly exaggerated. I used to belong to a love cult and it was an experience I don't think I could live without. I could relate to most of the things that this move had to offer and it didn't hurt that the protagonist was a magician. Through out the film we watch him put together the greatest love cult of it's century and gain money and respect from it. When push comes to shove, he better keep shoveling.

The main flaw of this movie is it's inability to interact with the audience or at least to get the audience's grasp of the subject. Only very few people would be able to comprehend what it means to be involved in such an institution without actually having been in one. I think the cameraman could have delved deeper into the subject matter and the director could have put some monologues in the beginning and end of the film just to get the feeling going. This would have made the film that much more accessible to the public. Right now this movie serves as nothing more than an instructional video to people interested in forming their own love cults.

What I love about this film was it's honesty and straight-forwardness. Also the crew did an amazing job, especially the cinematographer, gaffer grip man and the dolly operator. All transitions were smooth and the editing was superb. The story was written in a quite Scandinavian way so you would instantly think that the pen would be Jörge Minkulan, but he was the pen behind all the great love cult films such as 'Grab me and die: Opposites' and 'The Big Turn-Out'.

A great deal of respect for this lifestyle is required for this film and if you are into the love cult phenomena you would be wise to watch this film in a poorly lit environment. Comes highly recommended. Also look for the Swedish series 'Jumpelaten: Porky-pork' from the esteemed company Jävlar.
