Amazingly Bad
10 March 2003 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

I saw this at a film festival and I could not believe how disastrous this film was. Starting with odd, but at least tolerable character sketches (the cop-protagonist spits out gritty lines that would make Jake Vittes blush). There is a brutal scene of violence that brings some of the horrors of the prejudice out. BUT THEN: the film stops caring at all about the prejudice. It never discusses the wheres or whys of how the boys came to these prejudices. Instead, it becomes a mealy-mouther family drama interspersed with shamefully awful euro-trash back beats. As I watched the movie implode in horror, the ending had the worst and most tacked-on cliche... people addressing the camera. To make matters worse, these were immigrants talking to the camera. I assume they never saw the movie, because they think that it had something to do with tolerance and prejudice... I am not clear on what this movie addressed other than ugly people in love scenes.
