Didier Goldschmidt's portrayal of Handke's book didn't disappoint me at all.
25 December 2003 | by (Co Fremanagh Ireland) – See all my reviews

Niels Arestrup, on top form as usual, plays Gregor, a man suffering from impatence. His previous films, such as the genius that is, Bluebeard, Bluebeard (1987), have always exited me. Anne Wiazemsky provides great support in this underrated gem.
