The camera doesn't lie
8 February 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This was the most fun I've had in a movie in a really long time. It's very clever, but it's not in your face about its cleverness at all. Rather, it sort of creeps up on you. It's a movie about a fictitious movie maker, but the (equally fictitious) private lives of the cast and crew quickly get tangled up with the plot. The story revolves around a love triangle riddled with seduction, suspicion, jealousy, and betrayal. The whole thing has an experimental feel to it, yet everything is superbly lit and shot, with a fair amount of hand-held camera-work and lots of stunning close-ups. But you don't have to be a Cahiers Du Cinéma subscriber to see the merits of a brown-eyed blonde beauty in Barbarella boots riding her bicycle around the streets of sunny Amsterdam, with a million dollar smile on her face. Sallie Harmsen, who plays the director's girlfriend Simone, has real star power. She could easily be the next Rebecca Romijn.
