Somebody wrote here: '(Most) US reviewers find this mediocre or 'not
interesting' and suggest we should see the American remake. European
reviewers all like it! I like it too' Oh well, I'm European... so what?
I love GOOD cinema of any kind but sadly I got really disappointed with
this over-rated and feeble thriller. The story is so obvious and
cliché-ridden as any Hollywood mainstream movie of this type and in the
last 30 minutes it's like an idiot-plot compendium. It begins promising
enough, there are a couple of superb scary scenes in the first half,
tons of creepy atmosphere along the way (great locations and
camera-work) and some decent performances. But that's all. OK, if the
point with this movie was character development it fails with this,
too. There's not a single complex or even sympathetic character. And
that slight social commentary is uninteresting because it doesn't match
with the thriller elements at all.
I haven't seen the American remake and I don't feel like to do it after seeing this one.
I've read a lot of mistaken reviews about this movie affirming that its original shooting language is in English. That's not true. Those who has been watching the English version were listening to a poor dubbing. "Anatomie" was actually shot in German and that's the original language of the players. Anybody who pays attention to the sound quality can easily notice that the German version keeps clearly the acoustics attributes and shape of direct sound recording on shooting. On the contrary, the English version just sounds like what it is: a poor, flat studio dubbing. Watching the German version with English subtitles is definitely the best option if you like seeing films in the shape its creators really made it.
