GO and SEE it, it's something different and really worth it
A lot of art movies are beautiful but ain't fun. Dark horse on the other hand is different. The movie is cinematographic really beautiful (a lot of the shot's could be art photo's) but besides that is a nice story mixed with some dark humor. I have a spot for movies that start out strong, and this one really had a nice opening!
The scenery reminds me of French movies from the sixties, maybe that's because the movie is not in color (though it was filmed in color), the looks of the girl, the fiat 500 he drives, the interiors they used or just because of the title poster (they lay in front of the fiat on a field). But it gives the Dark Horse something nice, all together the best movie a saw in months.
It's a shame that so few have seen this movie, it was just me and my girlfriend at the cinema and given the number of votes here on IMDb or rottentomatoes it is not very popular.
