Storyline

Dimitris, a grumpy middle-aged man, is having a hard time with his business partner on a particular decision as to opening a new business; and he's also having a hell of a time with his family members. He has a really short temper, and the unpleasant behaviour of his nasty wife and his disrespectful children don't contribute much to his health. Written by Exiled Archangel®

Sonic Attack!
4 July 2014 | by (Shenzhen, China) – See all my reviews

This is noise pollution, not a film! Just ninety minutes of unsympathetic people shouting at each other. Obviously, the director was trying to create a tense atmosphere and keep viewers on the edge, but what comes out is a pointless assault to your eardrums. Ever tried to fall asleep but couldn't because of the bastard neighbours? Yeah, this film is something like that. My friend saw the trailer like, ten years ago, and he still couldn't shrug off the cacophonous disharmony created by the main character's voice. OK, maybe some of you think it will be a good idea to turn down the volume and watch it with the subtitles on but in terms of visuals it's about as impressive as a you tube video!
