A lazy exploitation movie
6 February 2019 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

A movie that is so lazy that even the fade out is slow.

A taxpayer rip off so that some people can play "Making Movies" at home.

The immigrant theme is just pasted over to get a chance with the specialized shows. And so is the gay theme.

This movie like most European features is a 25 minute script blown up to feature film with zooms on meaningless empty looks and empty scenery.

And it is sad. Because it could have been

* about the bureaucratic machine that destroy lives. Instead it is about the bureaucrat that sees the light and breaks the law * about the meaningless borders and passports. Instead it is about the nice white people * about the humiliation of being a migrant and what the governmental employees abusing their power. Instead it is about the white breeder that has less than a migrant

And so on. It's a soft racist story, a 21st century politically correct script, with barbaric brown people who kill gay, and the beautiful Norse picking up the bill.

It starts slow. Is goes even slower. It takes more than an hour to make the two women reach each other and ends up with a lie simply because the script had no idea how to end the 25 minute story. It has characters that come from nowhere to go nowhere, just like a 5 minute short. A failure for the sake of the Great Western Culture.
