Genius (2016)

Theatrical, talky, almost monochrome – and allegedly not at all »a true story«, as stated in the beginning. Develops into a father and son tale of sorts, metaphorically depicted through the relation between a young energetic writer and his older … Continue reading

It’s all about love (2002)

– Apparently it’s the heart. »The lovers met…«, the brother said, never completing the sentence. – I don’t want to fly. I am not an angel. A peculiar, suggestive, ominous combination of relationship drama and thriller, set in a very … Continue reading

Rude, irreverent, and exceedingly violent. Upon closer look, however, this is pretty much an oldfashioned fairytale with a lot of contemporary attitude slapped on. Far more funny and entertaining than most other superhero movies, but also quite stupid storywise. Ultimately … Continue reading
