A controversial, minimalistic. absurd, claustrophobic movie about our daily lives
20 November 2012 | by (Ljubljana, Slovenia) – See all my reviews

As I'm not fond of lengthy comments and reviews, especially on thought-provoking and philosophical movies - as I believe that the perception of every single one of us is remarkably specific - I will relieve only one thing, about this very controversial movie, which kept my wits working for quite some time, as I've been stewing over it for a couple of evenings after seeing it at the Ljubljana International Film Festival.

The movie is not about cars and motors as a previous comment puts it. It's a symbolist, minimalist and often claustrophobic and bizarrely ridiculous approach on depicting life. It is not at all shallow, but rather unintentionally philosophic in its extraordinary cinematographic simplicity of various static shots. It is definitely worth watching, but beyond question not for everyone.

If you cherish modern Greek cinematography - movies like Kynodontas or Attenberg - you will love this one for sure. Mr. Makridis' director-debut definitely payed off. In my personal opinion: an amazing movie and an amazing director!
