Storyline

John (35) is a bright Cambridge scientist, who always comes across as a pleasant fellow. When his fiancée leaves him, he withdraws from his world of academic isolation in order to try out some of his long-gestating theories on how to make the world a better place. On his journey through the English countryside, John is accompanied by his 14-year-old donor child - Ronja, whom he tries to convert to the same radical ideas that he believes in. Murder. Elimination. Cleansing. All justifiable in the mind of a modern day European Psycho. Written by Kadri Kõusaar

Not a good movie, please avoid!
16 March 2013 | by (Botswana) – See all my reviews

This movie certainly is one of the worst thriller movies that can possibly be made and no one certainly would not lose anything if it would not exist.

The plot and characters could be described as childish, not believable and unrealistic.

It certainly is hard to try to understand what this movie actually is about in a context of reality or possibly even considering it to be art-house. The main character is cartoon-like, not having any real motives other than his sick mind. The movie kind of tries to justify his actions which is even worse.

The music, characters, plot, images do not fit together very well although I enjoyed the camera-work in a very small amount. The classical music is unnecessary trying to give this main character some fake depth, it does not work.

I had feelings of walking out of the cinema, luckily I had bought a beer so I could take a sip on most painful parts.

I do not recommend this movie to anyone.
