Well...this is - indeed - a horror.

Every shot is held just that bit too long. The repetition is mind-numbing. There's a ridiculous, over-the-top performance...which - even more ridiculously - ends, halfway through, when he has a graphically-shown orgasm and promptly keels over and dies. Hooray!

Perhaps things will improve...not in a month of Mondays! He's re-born...in a cardboard womb...and, the drivel continues right through to the end.

Yes...it's that tired old debate, again...is it porn, is it art? Whatever it is...it's a blistering waste of money, in every sense of the word. Give your hard-earned pennies to a well-deserving charity instead of doling it out on this claptrap.

Being Emiliano Rocha Minter's debut feature...don't hold your breath for his second. If there is any justice in the filmmaking world...here endeth that career!


The(ir) Blurb...

After wandering a ruined city for years in search of food and shelter, two siblings find their way into one of the last remaining buildings. Inside, they find a man who will make them a dangerous offer to survive the outside world.
