Bleak but compelling
9 May 1999 | by Chrissy-15See all my reviews

Bleak and dark portrayal of the relationships between 6 main characters. The film was watchable only because some of the characters were very easy to sympathise with. You will want to turn away from the screen because the other characters are so hateful. This is a really intelligent film, you should be able to recognise some aspect of every bad relationship you've ever been in. Much easier for a woman to watch than a man. The repulsive male figures are worthy of hate. The repulsive female figures are just pathetic.

Don't expect to come out feeling uplifted but do expect to feel relieved that your relationship isn't going nearly as badly as any of those depicted in the film. If it is then now is the time to get out. Out of 5 : for relationship masochists - 5 for everyone else - 3
