Ruined mostly by the shaky camera
11 October 2013 | by (Brazil/Austria) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately there is almost nothing good to say about this film.

The camera is so shaky that it's hard to recognize things in the picture. If watched on a big cinema screen, it would have made me vomit.

Dialogs are mostly pathetic and acting is very poor, many times over the top. At times it's even difficult to understand what they are saying, because of the strong (bad) accent.

Many scenes are tediously long, dark and the "music" is too loud.

I really tried to like this film, but I couldn't.

I think it's good, when directors try to be daring, but some seem to forget that they are not making a film for themselves, but they want it to be viewed by others. If so, maybe it's not wrong to try to make a film watchable (visually pleasant) as well.
