Pretty disappointing
12 August 2009 | by dusan-22See all my reviews

Until I saw this film I read good comments, but was pretty much disappointed thereafter. What I expected is to see a decent movie of the genre underlined. What I saw is something similar to cinema-verite feature film. Camera tries to follow the action as it is for real while director is pretty much ignoring everything else. The plot, character development and even action itself. Feature film should bring you the recreation of the fiction or event, not the event itself as unlike watching documentary we don't know previously mentioned things: the participants, the action and what is going on between (them). Film looks like amateurish director debut to me and what is nice to be mentioned about this film are some really nice shots, and only that. 3 out of 10, if you ask me.
