Too Beautiful to Be True

Zu schön um wahr zu sein

Directed by Marcel Odenbach
Germany, 2000
Avant-Garde, Short


Pictures of Venezuela’s political reality are superimposed on a dream world represented by the beautiful women. The female cult of beauty is refracted by a male-dominated world of violence that stains the kiss scenes, not unlike the lipstick smudging the camera.
