Reviews

In this directorial debut from Jessica Hausner (Lourdes)she presents the story of Rita, a willful and unruly teenager on the verge if womanhood. Her sexual awakening leads her to intimacy with a schoolboy, to young, and a bus driver, too old. Rita's efforts to break out of her solitude and claustrophobix enviroment isolate her even more, until one day she crosses the line

Format: DVD
A curious DVD, this. I watched it having enjoyed 'Lourdes' by the same director. 'Lourdes' is a terrific movie, sophisticated and witty. 'Lovely Rita', on the other hand, is amateurish and odd. Because this is a bare bones DVD, there's no way of knowing if this short film is deliberately crudely made or just crudely made. The acting is unconvincing; half the time you're expecting the cast to look directly into the camera. And there are zooms, so many zooms, in and out, which no film maker worth their salt will use any more (dolly shots, please). There are some good things, such as the father's use of timers to save on electricity, or the unfashionable clothes, but this is the sort of film anyone with a camera and a few willing chums could make. It could have been included as an extra with 'Lourdes' or 'Hotel'.

While I hope this is a sophisticated cinematic joke, I suspect it's no more than a low budget early effort. If it's the latter, then it should never have been released by such a prestigious company as Artificial Eye.

In short, don't buy this if you're after a decent movie. This is a curiosity and nothing more. There are plenty of other titles out there. Keep browsing.

This film was terrible and I turned it off halfway through. It's like some awful boring home movie from the 1970's, shot on some cheap camera, full of people doing not much except standing around wearing awful guady clothes and greasy hair. I like european cinema but I take my hat off to anyone who can sit through this film to the end of it's very short 70 odd minutes.
