Storyline

Lucy, a privileged North American in contemporary Berlin, living a life of post Punk hedonism, roams the streets with her best friend, Derek. Together they use the city like a playground, a stage, and a never ending party. Into their lives enters Galia, a young Israeli woman carrying the promise of a better, cleaner way of living. A tribute to Punk underground films turns into a melodrama in "Saturn Returns", mirroring Lucy and Galia's modulating states of mind. Our and their look into each other's life and culture, becomes an investigation of empty facades. The film was constructed by both improvised and pre-scripted scenes, as required by the nature of each scene. Written by anonymous

A very interesting and engaging film
7 December 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film has caught my attention at the Turin film festival, and I must say that I was happy to find quite an interesting and engaging film, both on the formal and on the content level.

The film is structured in a very special way, where as the time is passing, also the "genre" or maybe even the whole concept of the film, is evolving. Yet, for a reason I'm not sure I have understood, it had put on me in a special state of mind, where, on contrary to other films

  • in which we "watch in order to live someone else's life", here I


constantly felt missing, remembering, re-composing the actions in my head. It seems that by playing with these different "genres" of film (for example, a horror film, a melodrama, a rock'n'roll film), a different and unusual time perception is created.

The film is basically a story of friendship and maybe love, between two women, both foreigners, both living in Berlin. I write "maybe love", because it seems that more than just passion, it is envy that draws these two young women to each other.

The film is dealing, very boldly I think, with many contemporary issues, in a very not-"politically-correct" way, and for this reason, it might get fire from certain people and I think that the filmmakers are trying to ask and redefine the way that we see the relationships of people in contemporary times.

I recommend you to go and see this film. Even if you would find it difficult, or you won't agree with its universalistic message ("There are no different cultures in the world, only different classes", one of the characters is saying to the other), you would still find it very thoughtful and intelligent.
