As weird as they get
17 October 2005 | by llamagirl-1See all my reviews

Saw this film at the London Film Festival. It's actually part of the Zentropa Omnibus "Visions of Europe". The title probably alludes to Bocklin's Isle of the Dead paintings, which make a fleeting appearance towards the beginning of the film and which are echoed in the mise-en-scene. Deliciously dark, reeks of death, but far too cryptic: not sure I really understood what the director was trying to say. But then again, perhaps 5 min is too short a time to build a proper story structure, and it's all so beautifully shot! Later found a review in Time Out, which called it a "pleasingly cheeky surprise!" (how's that for another cryptic comment?!)
