Trash - but sometimes funny and creative
12 December 2005 | by micmulSee all my reviews

First the bad news: The plot (if there is one) is totally chaotic, the acting is unworthy for discussion, the lighting looks like on some homemade old 8mm-film from the 1970s and so does the photography. Dante would have said: "Abandon all taste, ye who enter here". If this movie would be more known, it would have a good chance to enter the bottom-100-charts.

The good news: It has some nice ideas, a few jokes actually can make one laugh, has several creative ideas and it is wonderfully provocative.

I watched it some Years ago in a tiny makeshift cinema using a 16-mm equipment (or was it super-8? I don't remember), with one loudspeaker, what was absolutely adequate for this film. And of course, Wenzel Storch has probably done all the above purposely.

This movie may be watched - but on Your own risk! The author of this comment disclaims all liability for damages on Your taste. :)
