This is an extraordinary piece of drama, but as you can read from other peoples comments.. will confuse you if you can't think for yourself. It is an intensely academically positioned film which seems to draw much on the so called 'postmodern objectivity' and the disconnected self. What is most interesting in this film is that it is void of constructed meaning so whilst watching it De van never gives us answers, but goes directly to the establishment of a thinking feeling subject trying to reconnect with herself against the capitalist/consumerist world she lives in. A truly intelligent film which demands further discussion and thought.
