A drama or a comedy ?
2 November 2001 | by (Brussels, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Having seen this movie during the Brussels Film Festival in 2000, I remember being pleasantly entertained, but nothing more. We see the life of a lawyer (Stuhr) during one crucial week. Each day starts with him doing a couple of laps in a swimming pool and every day ends with him getting a little bit further in trouble. There are some comic moments, and some dramatic ones, but in the end it is difficult to say what the makers of this movie tried to accomplish. Sure, it is well acted, reasonably well-written (with the exception of the "seduction" scene, which is extremely unbelievable. The music is well used, but the pace is very uneven. In short, a movie that is worth seeing on video, especially if you like Stuhr. If you don't, then I would suggest re-renting Kieszlowski's Dekalog 1 to 9 again (not number 10 if you don't like Stuhr).
