Had I had hair, I'd pull it out!
30 August 2001 | by Henry LeirvollSee all my reviews

I viewed this movie at the Norwegian Film Festival in Haugesund. There was a french-Canadian critic there to present it - and he said that he struggled on which movie to bring to Norway; This - or another one that supposedly had won some prizes. - I can't for the life of me figure out why he chose this one. After about 40 minutes I was ready to pull my hair out, and I don't have much hair. Surely, I could have gone - but I take pride in never leaving a movie no matter how bad it is. Now .. this movie wasn't directly bad - it was just so TEDIOUS! I do not understand why people spend money on making these movies. It was about nothing. I say nothing, because that's exactly what I got out of it. I'm sorry, Canadian friends (and I have several). This is a B O R I N G movie.
