Pretty shocking and very bleak stuff.
20 November 2005 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Following the life of a murderer and paedophile,"Divided Into Zero" juxtaposes three important stages of a diseased mind:aged 10,as a disturbed boy who suffered the loss of his parents;a dangerous 30-year-old leaving behind hellish tableaux,attempting to wash away his sins among the company of whores;and a twisted old hermit of a man who–at the age of 70–kidnaps a girl whom he nails to a wall."Divided Into Zero" is a cold and deeply disturbing horror short which features plenty of unsettling violence with lashings of paedophilia on display.The killer–or Wanderer–defines his tortured feelings in remarkable and passionless detail.Despite knowing the extent of his problems,he performs them with religious conviction.Like "Subconscious Cruelty","Divided Into Zero" is a bleak and transgressive film.Recommeded only for more open-minded viewers.9 out of 10.
