Strangely compelling
19 October 2001 | by scralphSee all my reviews

I saw this film as part of my Dutch language course at university. It's one of those where you're not quite sure what is going on, but you feel compelled to carry on watching to try and figure it out!! Haunting film that stayed in my thoughts for ages. I can't tell you what it's about because I don't really remember but it is worth a try!
