Excellent
19 August 2001 | by CanadianBeaverSee all my reviews

I saw this show at the closing of the Vancouver Queer film festival, and i must note that there is nothing that makes this film "queer fringe". The reason its shown as part of the festival is because our leading lady is a lesbian. Beyond that, this movie contains little sex. Of what little sex it does have, none of it is explicit nor graphic (i don't even remember any nudity).

This film was extremely well done. The construction of the story is done so flawlessly that the intermixing of two timelines (one in the present, and one in the past) is fluent and fascinating. The leading lady is excellent, and very subtle.

If there's one complaint of mine, it's that there wasn't enough german techno. Unfortunatley, not all german films can be Lola Rennt, now can they.
