Uncompromising auteur film.
15 August 2004 | by (california) – See all my reviews

One of Mocky's best films. But which aren't? You can see his style, his touch, his independence in the first frames. He's the sort of filmmaker that never compromises, never bows down to morality. No wonder for someone that calls himself an amoral moralist. This film is a little heavy to get involved in, but once you're immersed in this surreal, or more real than real world, the film really gets you. The acting is terrific. The ending is perfect. Go see it with an open mind. And if you can find his DVD collection, get it, support this low budget, uncompromising film auteur! He's still shooting film at a rate of 1 every 2 years.
