Quotes

Beni: I felt lighter and almost emptier. In this emptiness there was sadness, but also consolation. I of course asked myself over and over again, and still do: If I had loved him even more, and differently, he wouldn't have died. Should our paths cross again Fögi, I'll try harder this time, love you so that nothing can keep us apart. Next time I'll be stronger, I swear, next time...

Down and Out in Zurich
29 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

The road to perdition is well-travelled and well-documented in movie history. This particular `Road Movie' is set mostly in Switzerland in the mid-1970's, a conceit I see as the one lie in a very truthful film. This could be set anywhere at anytime but if a director is going to film a period piece, then he'd better watch for the anachronisms; they can be his undoing! Watching one more character destroy himself on drugs and booze might have been cliche, however, the two young actors, Frédéric Andrau (Fögi) and Vincent Branchet (Beni), save us from this fate. Both are utterly convincing; I believed everything about them and I believed Beni's love for Fögi in all it's misguided, self-destructive force. The ending, inevitable and tragic, is saved from banality by Beni's `lesson learned', which is as original as it is poignant.
