Ridiculous
12 December 2013 | by chicosijmSee all my reviews

"Ridiculous." That is about the only word that can be used to describe this wreck of a movie. The dialog is awful, the acting even more so. It is just completely and utterly unbelievable. Not one second could you take the main character seriously. Yes, she is quite disturbing in the book too, but the movie just completely ruins her character. The acting is so bad, it's almost hilarious, but unfortunately, this movie really isn't supposed to be a comedy.

This movie should not have been made. If you enjoyed the book by Frederik van Eeden, please do not harm yourself by watching this atrocity. That is, of course, unless you thoroughly enjoy movies with bad dialogue and bad acting.
