The good pupil makes a good pupil movie
16 September 2016 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

The author slash director of this movie was a good pupil. I can tell from the abuse of blurs, of hands and faces filmed under a harsh light even if there is no harsh light in the scene and from the frame in frames that person did art school time. Also, I can tell from the abuse of slow scenes in varied locations that the budget was generous, originated from one of the many state owned cine-funds. And the bad acting made the characters even worse. Oh, the characters! The writer never met those people. And what's worse, all the extra scenes, all the mess with so many character that go in and out of the full-of-objects scenes, all is very forced.

I disliked the excess of religious themes. I disliked the white power morals. The prostitute is East European. The religious nut is also a foreigner. In a way the foreigners are there to mess the good life of the white Christian majority. Sex? All the sex scenes are there for the shock value and are gratuitous. Translations for the foreign dialogue? Why the foreign language dialogue in the first place? Just to make it more obvious that the trouble makers are not Swiss? I disliked how every woman is a victim in her own way. I disliked how there is no story. I disliked how none of the characters moving around has any story to tell.

This is simply a bait movie, just like Moartea domnului Lazarescu: people will identify with one of the character and fill in the missing story.
