Shocking but rich !
4 February 2007 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I just came out of the movie and I'm still under shock. No doubt, two scenes are very hard to stand as spectator. But on the other hand, it's "just" the illustration of what we read every couple of days or weeks in newspapers and what's happening more and more frequently in suburbs

  • in our neighborhood. And the word "just" is exactly the problem and


one of the key points of the film: we are overwhelmed by horrible news and brutalized be medias (including music videos, video games, etc). Sooner or later we risk to blind us (e.g. with drugs) and/or to loose sensitiveness. When everything has the taste of "déjà vi" nothing will touch us any more. The setting remembered me to Fargo (from the Coen brothers): an extremely boring place in the middle of nowhere. But psychologically "The great ecstasy" is much more complex with a lot of matter of discussion: lack of communication even inside families, disillusion, no future ambiance, integration, lack of fathers and Oedipus-complex, puberty and virility, etc.
