Great Atmosphere!
5 May 1999 | by 030-Kino.de-2See all my reviews

Some people may find this movie boring, but if you have found an entrance into this film you'll love it! Sure, it's not for the "normal" movie goer who wants to have fun. In the contrary: You will be almost depressed after this one. If you are the melancholic type than this is a must see for you! One can also say: This is a song of Portishead as a movie.
