4.0 out of 5 stars A unique, surreal film, 28 Feb 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Leolo [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I liked this film a lot, but it's hard to put my reasons into words! Our young hero Leolo inhabits two worlds simultaneously - the real world of the filthy Montreal slum apartment where he lives with his mad, sadistic family, and the fantasy world of alpine Italy where he lives an idyllic existence. The contrast between Leolo's two worlds is what makes the film unique - in his imagination he's in love with a fantasy version of a local girl; in the film's squalid reality the same girl is the victim of an old man's voyeurism. Many of the images in this video will make you squirm (such as the scene where Leolo makes innovative use of a side of meat which is later served up as the family dinner) but for every gruesome scene there's a parallel vision of beauty. Definitely an interesting film, this one!
