Intense Masterpiece, somewhat scary
31 May 2014 | by TCCPhreakSee all my reviews

With about 50 minutes this is a rather short movie but it proves that sometimes, this is all it needs.

The visuals are intense and are able to show the heat that permeates everything. With a name of "Unter der Sonne" (under the sun), nothing else should be expected.

The music matches the tone, placing the story firmly into the eighties.

The story itself is eerily realistic. Young Viktor's parents fight, they drop them off at an aunt. Aunt and (female) cousin do not have the perfect relationship, themselves; especially the aunt seems under a lot of stress. Viktor's cousin is a lot less interested in him than he is into her. You really get the feeling that they accepted Viktor as a family duty but don't know what to do with him - thus evolving the story into a cautionary tale.

This movie can make you feel uncomfortable at times and some may even consider it drawn-out. Some scenes could be considered a bit long but this only emphasizes the style.
