Nice make, but disappointing finish (possible spoilers ahead)
17 October 2003 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

'Scherbentanz' is a typical German art-house family-problems flick, although this one is particularly dark. Jesko is dying of cancer and only his mother's bone-marrow could save him. Problem is: She went insane 20 years ago, ran away from her children and became a drug-addict. The mother gives a very good and creepy performance. I sat through the film because I wanted to know why she went crazy, but the solution is, frankly, disappointing. I expected much more to have happened to her. Bottom line: interesting plot, beautiful photography, well-written dialogue, well-developed characters, but be prepared to be disappointed by the (non-existent) final twist.
