no real story, no art
14 June 2005 | by yanivliSee all my reviews

I saw this movie with respectful feeling to its participants, but in the end I fell sorry for all of them. this was a stupid story about a family which suffer from mental and moral disease, and its son and daughter try to solve an economical problems with a brothel in their house. I didn't understood if the producer and the director try to built a comic or dramatic movie' but neither succeeded. more than that: I felt anger about all this because no one had a little respect for the real human problem which perform in the story. nothing about the rights of human, of women, of the elders, and to the parents. I try to find, maybe, a nihilist values, but the movie was so poor, so you can't find no story, no art of cinema, nothing The only one light was Isabelle Hupert, which no one can understand what she did there.
