"Yrrol" - a movie for itself
18 July 2005 | by AnnabellinneSee all my reviews

Peter Dalle has a way to twist a movie to the extent that the beginning is being forgotten. He begins with a very simple story and ends up with something else that is just as simple. It's just that the way to the end is... special (in a very good way). This is exactly what he has done in "Yrrol" - it is impossible to keep track of all the twists and turns. I have seen this movie more times than I can count and I discover something new every time I see it; references to other movies, jokes that I never thought of before or just a comment to the society. This is a movie that never gets old and I can certainly recommend it to everyone who enjoys a good laugh.
