Worst film ever?
2 August 2006 | by poetry-2See all my reviews

I saw this film on DVD with a group of friends. We wanted to see what a film only 2903 people went to see was like.

This could possibly be one of the biggest mistakes of my life. Everything in this film is wrong. From the cinematography (everything looks flat and dull, and the framing is off on every single frame), the acting (all of the actors seem like they can't believe what they're doing in this catastrophic picture), the dialogue (if written by a 5-year old, this would still be inexcusable), even the plot (there is no plot).

The director doesn't even comply to the simplest of cinematic rules. Take the scene where Poul and Arne are sitting in an empty room talking about reading people and using the information for their scam. When Poul starts talking about stereotypes the movie cuts to a public place with a large number of persons walking around. Poul mentions people in a way that implies that Arne is in Poul's head, e.g. "that guy is a rebel, he listens to punk". When he does this we the audience see a young "rebel" walking towards the camera, but Arne and Poul are sitting in an empty room, and therefore Poul would have to describe the person and not just go "that guy".

If you appreciate your mental health, and don't want all life to be sucked out of you, avoid this at all cost.

If possible I would give this zero stars.
