5.0 out of 5 stars great film, 28 Nov. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Million Dollar Hotel [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
it is the best film I have seen for a very long time and if I ever to make the list of the world best movies I may really consider this film as one.
It may seem a little too pretentious to start with especially for those who are not used to European cinema but trust the film: all your doubts about it will disappear. The twists of the plot, the exceptionally good shooting and absolutely great music will win you over.
It is definitely not a simple detective story. It is a very serious movie that explores human nature and raises the most basic questions of human life: love, friendship, money, ambition etc - the trivial questions. But the way the film raises them makes all these trivial things so meaningful and touching.
The actors are great. I think it is the best role of Mila Iovovich. The contrast of personalities of two main male characters creates the futuristic anti utopian world of the film in the beginning and later this very contrast proves how insufficient is the shape and the image as the new contrast getting built up: between them and the others.
There is only one thing that I can mention as a bit of frustrating in the film: the main character's mumbling. But perhaps we do not need to hear every word, anyway :)
Great film! Highly recommended to anyone who is not afraid of serious cinematography and want a wonderful visual and musical experience.
