User Reviews

appalling sense of pace
17 January 2007 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

As if the original story is not strange enough, here we have it told, in part realistically, with a grown man hit in the face with a ping pong bat and part as some fetishist, surrealist exercise with shades of Andy Warhol.

As if the director has not given himself enough problems he then compounds the situation with an appalling sense of pace.

It is a shame because this passionate piece has marvellous images, dreamlike episodes, some sexiness and then, regrettably long stretches when one's eyes begin to glaze over.

Certainly bizarre and worth a view but, well you have been warned!
