I'm not really sure why i like it.....
5 January 2006 | by casingeSee all my reviews

I think this movie is kind of hard to rate because it is so hard to compare to other movies (wich is something i kind of like in itself). The narrating style is very open and the storyline or kind of lack of storyline makes it a very different film from what at least i am used to. I must admit that i am not sure what the director is trying to say with the film but.. do you really have to understand that when a film reach you in another level. The "main" characters in the movie are people you usually find uncomfortable to be around or even annoying. At the same time I found these feelings mixed with sympathy and sometimes pity. Watching gitarrmongot kind of "makes you" take a look at the people you usually pass by while looking in another direction. I do recommend it to anyone who think they can watch it with an open mind. If you just want to be entertained for an hour and a half and not reflect over the movie you probably are better off with something else. gitarrmongot is a movie that i will remember and that actually might have changed my views on the world if only for a tiny little bit or at least it made me think about this subject for a while.... for that I'm giving it a 9/10
