Storyline

Somewhere in the near future, exists 'the Arena'. Here men with an 'aggression-gene' with which they want to live no longer, are being admitted to fulfil their wish to die. Through fights to the death, televised by the commercial sports channel, lives are being ended before one's time. Temmink, one of the gladiators, wins his first fight, finds a friend in a colleague and falls in love with one of the prostitutes. He becomes a national hero and loses his will to die. But, once admitted to the 'The Arena', there is no return... Written by Dennis Jansen <dennisj@dds.nl>

Alarming, inspiring movie
15 September 2005 | by klaasjandevriesSee all my reviews

I watched this movie a long time ago. From the first scene in the park I was grabbed by the alarmingly realistic way the violence was portrayed. A bit like the infamous fire-extinguisher scene in Irreversible...well maybe not thát harsh...well maybe it wás, I can't remember exactly.

I'd really like to see this movie again. I'm also quite curious to see how the movie makers view on 'television of the near future' was at that time and how close it is to our television-after-Big-Brother of today.

The relief felt at the end by one of the other commenters, I can share.
