Work of art by a 15-year-old
18 September 2006 | by (Bad Aibling, Germany) – See all my reviews

Great cinematography and styling. He stole the good parts from CAT PEOPLE (Bowie's music) and also used Kubrick (Shining, 2001). Well, that is what we all did in our first films... but this one is much more mature! The director also played the main part, so praise his DP even more! Weird message (which me, as a German, could not understand. Something like Beckett's LAST TAPE? But it lead to Kubrick's end of 2001.) And I wonder if he really climbed this rock?!? It looks terrific! Carefully thought, written, shot and cut, I hardly know films from film schools that are so overwhelming, both on an emotional and serious level. It is available on the "99-EURO-Films of European Directors", at least on the German DVD. Really a hidden Super 8 treasure, complete with original Super 8 - dropouts at some cuts.
