Born to be camp!

How to write about a film like this without giving away too many details? Almost impossible. The film is really fun to watch and it is good not to know too much of the plot because many twists and turns function best if you do not expect them. Although this does not mean you cannot enjoy it again, once you saw it. The mood of the film shifts between serious and persiflage and in that it is very well balanced because it never tips in either the one or the other way too much. Although it makes fun of the genre(s) it is scary too in the right moments. It keeps you guessing and although the film uses many situations from different genres that you know, the way they are put together and set against each other creates a very entertaining film. To describe the mood, it reminds me of Aki Kaurismäki's movies, especially the use of music and looks and the dialog. Did this review tell you what to expect? Certainly not! Go and see for yourself!!! :-)
