interesting
7 May 2003 | by voland64See all my reviews

This is quite good attempt to investigate the world of sculpture and art as a whole. That does not at all mean that the film is overly artsy. It succeeds in being fairly complex and intelligent without pretentiousness. In fact, it is a satire, also on some other social issues like new-age-type cults or psychotherapy. Includes some interesting characters. Leaves you with a bitter-sweet aftertaste. 8/10
