"Technically, this movie is brilliant but it just didn’t work for me. Like a Beatles cover-band this is a fantastic experience for fans of entertainment trapped in amber. Unfortunately, I don’t share this movie and its character’s nostalgia for a time before their conception. I also can’t get into movies shot like theatre where everything is held at arm’s length and the lighting conveys emotion more than the actors. I’m not about to shed a tear for a well timed spotlight!"

"It's interesting to look around the deserted town but I found aspects of Werner's commentary to be a little doubtful. It seemed exaggerated with poetic license in attempt to add tension to an otherwise dull film. The repetitive interviews with his 'peasants' also demonstrate the slapdash nature of this production."
