Quotes

Shun Li: Can a square be made a circle? Can different roads come together? Acute is the remorse for the lost way in the faltering steps of my return. Reluctant, my cart turns back. Muddled among the errors was the way.

pro multi cultural rubbish
11 April 2015 | by sugarfreepeppermintSee all my reviews

Although the film is set in Venice, don't expect beauty. It's all rather grim, unrealistically so. But ugly is the modus operandi for any director that wants to be taken "seriously," so there you go. This is the typical rubbish being made to affirm the sacred beliefs of a particular bleeding heart audience, who need to be convinced over and over again, that immigration (from 3rd world countries into Europe) is something that must simply be accepted, and that nationalism is bad. Most immigrants here are shown as saintly sensitive innocents, whilst the local working class population are portrayed as a nasty racist violent bunch of peasants.

Is a film like this really necessary, when boatloads of savage Africans, rape, murder and pillage their way through Italy under the guise of being "poor refugees?" I think not.

This is pathetic pantomime of the most basic kind, presented as profound drama for pseudo-intellectual libtards.
