Movie Reviews

A cult movie
Author: Jari Sömnes from IMDb

I saw this movie in Espoo Cine (Helsinki). I'm still in shock. I really love it. I have never seen something like this. It's truly different, risky and original. A strange and hypnotic mix of genres (Sci-fi, thriller, horror, fantasy, drama), so well done, so powerful, so visual, so artistic, so straight, so special. Hard and tender at the same time. Yes, hard because of some intense sequences (there are some really controversial, violent, realistic and uncomfortable moments) but also moving and touching (this movie touches you something deep inside).

Yes, this strange film is really hard on the surface but warm and tender under it (as the main character of the story). It's a rare, original and unusual tale of fears, love, pain and humanity. Since the moment it finished (with brave, brilliant and artistic shot full of sadness and beauty) I knew it: It's different, it's special, it's unique.
