The wife becomes mentally unstable because of the loss of her child and her therapist husband tries to treat her. Things she does during the recovery process are so real, they could happen to anyone. There are beautiful abstract scenes besides those strong visuals that reminded me of Melancholia, it's the same director just as I expected.
This movie is probably on the top of my lifetime "disturbing" movie list. Super surreal depictions of sex and violence are simple enough to tell you what the theme of this movie is. It's almost like birth and death happens every 15 minutes. 8 / 10
Lots of killing, blood, and death but I personally liked the tension of this movie. "One Eye" is a mute slave of a clan that they use him for their colosseum-style fighting games. He eventually escapes from that situation but he doesn't escape from the struggle to survive with fear for death always close. The killing continues, which keeps the hierarchy right. I really dig his steely personality because I don't have it in me. For some reason, Christianity is a important factor in this movie as same as Antichrist and I didn't realize this mysterious similarity till I wrote this review...weird.... 7 / 10
It's categorized under "horror" but I don't think it's a horror movie. As an important factor, I suppose they wanted to make it look like an 80's movie, so the most of the beautiful sets that appear in this film are nostalgic as well as scientific, with abstract colors and music. I liked the simplicity of it, but would not work as a weekend "date night" movie. 7 / 10
To me it was shot in such a refined style that every single cut and dialogue felt so modern, I almost couldn't tell this was a 1960's movie. The main character, Roland, immediately caught my attention so I did a little research on him and he turned out to have a really interesting background story. According to wikipedia, The Director Jacques Becker didn't hire him as actor, but as a real jail breaker. No wonder his acting is super realistic! This one is indeed highly recommended as a weekend "date night" movie. 9 / 10
