I don't like a movie where the makers go to great lengths to put (hide is a better word I guess) a meaning in everything. In the case of Lulu the end result is a film where the actors are wooden puppets, the words are (as is typical in Dutch movies) hard to understand (result of mumbling/poor sound levels) and the whole 'feel' of the movie is forced and unrealistic.
Maybe this was too arty-farty for me, but I usually like this kind of movie. The four points I gave are for the ever so lovely Lulu...who is a joy to watch. And Georgina Verbaan is playing her favorite role again; seems the only thing she can do right: playing a cheap broad.
In my opinion, Lulu had a lot of potential but it's wasted by the efforts to make this an art movie. Such a shame...
