long and depressing
10 February 2007 | by dromascaSee all my reviews

Hard to put this film of director Mircea Danieluc in a clear category. It tries to build a metaphor of a concentration universe, with many allusions - especially in the commentary - to the Bible and sins for which humanity should repent. Yet, it has no clear line, abjection, violence, death, insanity repeat themselves all over more than two hours of film with no clear direction or message.

The story line starts with a group of German resembling Hitler and other fascist leaders brought in some kind of a prisoners camp where they are supposed to be identified. Soon after a bombing destroys the camp and the survivors afraid of being mis-identified decide to stay in their close universe. They thrive for freedom but do not dare to reach it, they fight, rape, kill among themselves until the very end of the film. Madness and death seem to be the only alternatives of this dark universe.

There is good cinema and acting in the film, but the long repetition of the same theme without any clear message makes the viewing tough, while the lack of any ray of hope will make the viewer who resisted for the whole screening wonder whether the feeling of emptiness at the end was intentional.
