Plot Summary | Add Synopsis

Taglines:

A cleverly caustic, stylistic satire, in the tradition of Europe's politically penetrating writers and artists, this film deals with certain aspects of international intrigue and society. It is the true story of a certain "young lady" known simply as Rosemary to her many admirers. Shown at the Venice Film Festival under protest, it received the Italian Critic's Award.

This IS NOT a good German Film
6 February 2003 | by Sykik6901See all my reviews

I believe that this film was not a very good one. It is not that I thought it was a bad movie, it is just that I found it very hard to follow and therefore I lost interest very early on in the movie. From the beginning, I did not find the movie visually stimulating at all. It just seemed very flat to me and therefore it was not exciting for me to watch. I think what bothered me the most about the film was the still shots. What is brought to my mind is the shots of just cars driving by. This was not stimulating to me at all. I feel that some how, the film needed to be more vibrant, perhaps maybe with color. I understand that the film was made in the 50s, however, hopefully the remake made use of color to add more visual stimulation to the movie. I guess I also lost some interest in the movie because I really did not like how the hotel clerk was "selling off" women. I do understand though that it was the practice at the time. I also felt like the acting was not dramatic enough. All in all, I believe that I lost interest in the film because I did not find it very stimulating. In my eyes, it was nothing great to look at and the music was nothing spectacular either. Lastly, the acting did not do anything to justify the film, and it simply just brought it down even more.
