Did You Know?


In the original draft the end involved a long car chase with Jack eventually catching up with Becky on a beach, raping and murdering her, then driving his car back to his bedsit where he had built a secret shrine. Unfortunately due to budget and other problems with censorship the final scene was completely re written. Instead a scene having Jack attacking Becky was added in the middle to help with the explanation of Becky's hatred for Jack. See more »

Seen it, Met the Man, wish I could be positive...
29 August 2003 | by motholdSee all my reviews

I have seen the English spoken version of Hwerow Hweg, otherwise known as Bitter Sweet. Unfortunately I was rather disappointed. I found the acting rather poor, the music annoying, the script lifeless and story confusing. However there are some good shoots and Antal has made good use of the local areas. I wish I could be more positive about this film as having being taught by him for a few works on screenwriting, you discover the man has, as he likes to call it 'fire in your belly'. Hope his future work has more promise, good luck Antal.
