What a waste of time! For what seemed like a promising synopsis and despite the fact that it actually won a Silver Bear award in Berlin, this closing movie for us from the Bangkok International Film Fest was such a disappointment. The ending of the movie left nothing much to be said, glorified or gratified.
It was monotonously slow. Lame. Insipid. A movie I’d love to hate. That’s 119 minutes of my time I will never get back. I have no idea how such a movie could have actually won an award. Must have been some element of an artistic intellect there which obviously went right over my head.
Film Fest: you win some, you lose some…It is, otherwise a consolation that the first four films we caught were pretty good to ease the setback from this final movie.
