unique film
17 March 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This film is unique in the sense that it is completely authentic. It shows the 'verelendung' of a modern woman, portrayed by 3 actresses, to enhance te sense of verfremdung as in some works of Weil. It impresses with the rich and metaphorical visuals and quotations to other films such as Antonioni's L'aventura. It plays with storytelling in a way that you realize that sometimes the theme is more important than the actual realism of the scenes itself. It refuses to be a too plotted story and therefor plays with genres( road-movie vs psychological drama) . The story plays in a place on the border of Holland, there were one can easily cross borders, and where people soon seem to speak different languages. It shows a woman in distress because she realizes her modern, hedonist life has lead her to a lack of introspectiveness. Many will not easily see the innovative quality of this film, but this is gonna be a classic!
