Ambitious movie shows in four countries doc.
12 June 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Theatrical quality images and shooting in four different countries indicates a seriousness of purpose about this German documentary. Unfortunately what they brought back has been stretched to twice the length of it's interest value.

An Indian tent show, a Cultural Centre in Republic of Korea, the Flick regional theatre in the American Mid West and an open air auditorium in Burkina Faso are intercut as they put on their shows. Only the Korean (looks awful) and Indian movies are shown, the Hollywood product apparently being too pricey.

Attempts at making the comparison meaningful, like having the two audiences comment TITANIC, don't yield anything useful. There are glimpses of the life styles of the different communities which occasionally get attention. The makers resist the chance to ridicule the Koreans, which is at least winning, but at this length the film drags.

Cutting and pointing the work with a sharp commentary could validate the possibilities the shape of the project provides.
