3.5 Exposed by the affect of Novelle Vague (Firstly I thought about Adriaan Ditvoorst's "Paranoia") "Jimmy Orpheus" has the unique charm of New German cinema itself. Like a sludge creeping in ditch, an unkempt bastard roams around the darkest city whose darkness is full of stagnate melancholia. While whimsical air and gloomy atmosphere coexist, dir. Krick make them delve into the darkness attractively. Darkly gritty.
