Fantastic!
24 March 2011 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I was surprised that I enjoyed this film as much as I did. I had one of those "nothing to do" evenings and came across Frownland as an alternative, and as mentioned already, I really enjoyed it. You actually see how the main character drowns in his phobias deeper and deeper. You get a sense of what it is like to live in a big city and try to cope with various phobias at the same time. At times I felt sorry for him, sympathetic even. It seemed everywhere he went he was rejected and had to box his way through. Every doorbell he rang was just another rejection and another vitamin shot that helped his phobias and neuroses increase. I recommend this film if you are into psychology.
