German post-punk, new wave class war thriller
18 June 2017 | by billkingqsSee all my reviews

This is a really quite good , cheaply dubbed German film pitching a yuppie couple held against their wishes in an "art gallery" vs a bunch of hoodlums lower ranked in the social spectrum. Sort of a class war movie. It is really quite prescient. It is like a knock off of House on the Edge of the Park in some ways, but i wouldn't say its as nasty as that. There is no real harm done to the couple, the woman is molested by some of the hoodlums and they lock the man in a toilet for a while. Mostly they are verbally abused and pushed around a bit. Then the couple fight back. I liked the end line of one the villains as he slowly dies , blood gushing from his mouth after being skewered in the guts by one of the yuppies : "Damn it, you always win!". Its stuff like this that makes this film a minor gem. This film has good style and atmosphere too with a good looking cast, great lighting and setting. Recommended.
