hey! this is buttgereit - so this is not for everybody
Longer than your usual short, but quite shorter than a normal film this one starts off like a love story with cheap camera and turns out to become..... hehehe , everything that Buttgereits work is about. Amateur but fresh camerawork, perfect (as all Buttgereit long films) ending.
Clearly, to those who don't know the guy (director of cult hit Nekromantik) this is only for those who can appreciate in a way or another sick humour, or sick situations in general. In this one, unlike all his next films (Nekromantik 1,2, Schramm - I consider these serious films) raises a smile. The splatter element is here but in earlier stages.
I bought a special edition VHS in Berlin, which also includes all his early works like HORROR HEAVEN (excellent satire of horror s***!) or THE GOLLOB (Maybe his best short!). Surprisingly, I almost enjoyed all his early works (that definately dont take themselves seriously) more than his more "serious" ones.
For what it's worth this is something I would like to do - I mean - if i made some short films, they might look and sound like this. Thats why I like Jorg :)
