"I am the stars, I am the sky... ",
This review is from: Gertrud  [DVD] (DVD)
An insufferable, self-obsessed woman is Gertrud: "I am the stars, I am the sky... I am a mouth seeking another mouth". Gertrud is not a character with whom one can identify, she irritates with a love that should remain silent. Gertrud is in love with Love. She is merciless with those who love her; she has no knowledge of real love and so never finds love. True love forgives all sins: Gertrud cannot forgive. For Gertrud Love is everything... on condition. This film far from extolling the virtues of an emancipated woman details the vacuousness of a life lived in the pursuit of pleasure. Gertrud true to self-Love to the very end remains alone and unfulfilled. Watching this film, I felt nothing but a desire for the increasingly sanctimonious Gertrud to shut up, go away and die. A martyrs death, of course.

Thanks, Jason, for your incredibly dense non-understanding of this towering achievement of 20th Century art. And please take your own advice. Ya' know, that "shut up, go away. . ." thing.
