Moral preachings for teens
28 October 2011 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw 25 movies at this years edition of Sitges International Film Festival and none so tedious, boring and utterly pretentious as "Verbo". As the movie takes its first hesitating steps, director Eduardo Chapero-Jackson manages to keep some level of interest alive and the story about Sara - the archetype of the misunderstood teenager, who feels unfairly treated by just about everyone - starts off as somewhat highschoolesque, but still with a touch of that characterizing European realism, that usually puts French and German productions at the top of my list.

What is remotely interesting for 10 minutes has however faded completely after 20, and when 45 minutes has passed you just wish the horrid composition to be over. The hole thing is oh so predictable (even for the newly awakened cineast or random film watcher), filled with ridiculous moral preachings and bad acting. Add some animated segments accompanied by horrendous hip-hop music (a huge incongruence compared to the rest of the movie) and you have a recipe for disaster.

If I learned anything from this movie, it was not that suicide is bad, but rather that subjectiveness have conquered definitively: otherwise no one would clap this drivel!
