deliciously disturbing
1 September 2002 | by ntsxSee all my reviews

Don't go see this movie if you don't like long and disturbing dialogue. Don't go see this movie if you cannot do without a stereotype good guy, there are none in this movie... Don't go see this movie if you want to have a nice time because it deals with very sick ideas about moral values.

The characters in this film are karikatures, enbodyments of wrongness in the banking business. Theo van Gogh deserves much credit on the way he makes a movie painfully to watch. Not because of bad acting or bad script, but because of the way it challenges your sense of good and right. I kept watching it, I was attracted and horrified at the same time, i just had to.

asthma yet a smoker... thats the motto of this film.

Go see for yourself if you want to be sorry, and i mean that in a positive way.
