very well thought out!
15 December 2004 | by (New Jersey, USA) – See all my reviews

a complex, non-narrative 20+ min. experimental film, "pandora's paradox" has a really

interesting set of scenes, like a woman giving birth to a giant, bloody toe, an unforgettable

sex scene, and its impossible climax, which makes this film really stand out. very inventive

camera shots and effects are used, and it's one of the very few "art films" that make you want

to watch it over and over!

some may say that "pandora's paradox" is weird and inexplicable, but if you have an open

mind, you'll quickly understand the general feeling of the film: betrayal, an urge for

normalcy, and revenge. this director can go places!
