Three films based on Three Conversations by Russian writer and philosopher Vladimir Solovyov.The actors' 'exercises' develop into a minimalistic trilogy on cinema and literature, social and spiritual life, acting in film and in real life.
"Offset" was probably one of the worst movies I've ever seen. It starts of not to bad, and issues like interculturality and integration are no doubt interesting and promising. But the movie fails completely in dealing with these topics in a decent way. It was not the shallow plot, nor the average acting that displeased me, I could deal with that. But this movie reviews all the clichés about Germany, as well as about Romania, in a way that made me really angry. The moral of the story seems to be that "cultural barriers" can not be crossed, Romanians tend to be irrational and violent, etc. etc.
Watching "Offset" was not only a loss of time, it also reproduces racist stereotypes and clichés. If it was meant to be a political statement too, it's totally irresponsible.
