Having mix feelings about this one. On one hand it is an interesting study about mental illness and the recent fascination with the internet. On the other, Dominik's relationship with his classmates after the 'incident' was underdeveloped and the overlong animated scenes take away the impact of the story; not to mention that they actually add little to the story after awhile. I'm being generous with my rating.
I'm surprised I liked this as much as I did. Jakub Gierszal is a very talented young actor, that probably explains a bit of it. Dark and depressing, the animated scenes get on the nerves after a while, and the ending is rather unnecessary, but all the same I enjoyed it.
as bleak as the title suggests, this film is dark and depressing. However, it does explore the issues of homophobia and young people's dependency on the internet.Furthermore, the film illustrates just how young people experiment with their sexuality and clothes
This film is perfect. I'm trying and failing to finds ways in which to describe it. I watched it repeatedly in the space of one month that, though I haven't seen it in over a year now, I can still recall almost every scene.
