Worst Feelbad Movie ever produced
2 September 2006 | by tinweSee all my reviews

This must in fact be the only movie I've ever reviewed here on IMDb, that truly deserves the 1/10 vote.

Sure, it's feelbad, but feelbads at least have a purpose, a deeper meaning. This movie's only purpose is to make the audience feel bad. There is no deeper meaning to look for, like Moodyson's earlier flick "A hole in my heart" or Trier's "Dancer in The Dark".

Many in the audience left during the show, but I stayed, convinced on that the movie would eventually unravel something. Something to justify the bad poetry and disturbing hollistic images. But no. There was nothing to find. And I hate Moodysson for wasting my worst 70 minutes of my life for nothing.
