beautiful melancholy
3 August 2005 | by copenhagen_buzzSee all my reviews

People who like fascinating storytelling may be disappointed with this film. However, its strength lies not in the story but in its way of conveying certain feelings and moods. Themes like existence and.. well.. the meaning of life I guess are highlighted through the cinematography/art direction (e.g. landscapes of heavy Belgian industry in metal blue and grey and green colours) and the soundtrack (cool minimalistic electronic beats) instead of words. At the premiere in Berlin director and actors received standing ovations and prolonged cheering in Kino International. I think it deserved a prize for art direction at least.
