Generational portrait without much lows or highs
16 August 2018 | by rafael-hanussekSee all my reviews

Europe, she loves is an intimate portrait of four parings all over Europe. The European aspect only gets shown in various audio clips and like a time capsule, shows some desparation in the poorer countries Europe has to offer (Estonia, Greece, Spain and Ireland). The main personas are smoking all the time and don't even get much pleasure from doing drugs. As did I from watch this documentary. It is beautifully shot, but it goes from uninteresting discussion to uninteresting discussion, dispersed by some enviromental scenes shot from a car. The music, with some exceptions, stays ambient or is gone. Some scenes are definitely staged, while I believe that some scenes are not.

As I read from an interview, the film team had 10 days at every location. Maybe the movie ahould habe been shorter. It is a cool time capsule, maybe, but I have more fun watching a reality docu such as "Armes Deutschland" where the people seem more relatable and more interesting things happen.
