Not a bad movie.
6 July 2013 | by floresbatorSee all my reviews

Andrea Sawatzki, Kalles mutter. Is that so? Wo? Irina's drama is profound and it somehow symbolizes the fate of Eastern European as a whole. Just in this movie it is presented as being pointless. But this "fate" is meant to destroy the strong roots of those who live plainly by conducting a series of ancestral moral and transcendental principles which are inconvenient for the globalist politics of implementation of new age principles such as political correctness, tolerance, etc. The idea of a vegetarian, who could not stand the sight of a raw chicken, slaying a corpse with an electric knife, simply made me laugh, against the macabre situation of the scene.
