plain awful
5 May 2010 | by user-730-354465See all my reviews

When you think Slovenian films can't surprise you any more... than you're pretty much correct, actually!

But before continuing, a warning: what follows isn't a review, it is a way of putting out the feelings this film left me with after seeing it about an hour ago. So, how did it make me feel? It made me tempted of suing, both writer and the director (sic) for wasting almost two hours of my life.

Awful, horrible banalization, stereotypization of EPIC proportions, completely unneeded accentuation of sex and violence... could go on, but... This film is bad in SO many levels, you can't even appreciate otherwise great actors.

It starts quite promising, but ends up as a simply stupid wannabe- slasher movie that leaves you with nothing more than a deep hate for the writer. I feel sorry for the actors who wasted their time and fine talent with such a skrapucalo (can't find an appropriate translation, terribly sorry). Making this story from otherwise deeply intriguing and dramatization- worth theme is nothing short of a crime.

The only thing that would make sense is, and I'm heavily speculating here, the Slovenian Film Found (financier) at the time was probably in the hands of our lovely right-wing politics, which likes to take any opportunity to modify or relativize understanding of history. In that context, the script might have made some sense (watch out for the old communist elite!), until the writer screws them up as well.

Now, no one would want to see this. It fails as a reviewer of history, it fails as a study of characters and relationships, and it fails as a slasher. No one should be wasting their time on this.

There are some properly good Slovenian movies. This isn't one. It makes you not wanting to see another one for a very long time.
