  • riraru's rating of the film Submission

    Schlaue, gedankenanregende Verfilmung des Houellebecq-Romans mit einem großartigen Edgar Selge (die Nebenrollen hier und da etwas hölzern). Das Konzept, dass er sich selbst spielt, den François auf der Bühne in Hamburg und den François im Paris der nahen Zukunft, betont den Satire-/Dystopie-Charakter der Romanvorlage.
