What seems to begin with a romantic dinner for two, soon changes into something more macabre. Something way beyond ordinary peoples frames of references. Professor George Klubbard and Claudia are fully aware of their commitments and will stop at nothing to complete the experiment. Empirical research that emphasises on unknown states of mind and experiences of flesh few can brag about.
It’s all too hard to review this movie in any other way than to reveal certain details of it. The following text may therefore include spoilers. Read at your own risk!
is a short, no longer than thirty minutes long. These have a kind
of dramaturgy not comparable to that of the feature films. It’s
a more intense way of telling the story and you don’t have as
much time to develop characters and so forth. To create a situation
is however possible but to get the depth from longer productions is
just not easily obtained. It also has a limited budget so no extraordinary
details nor production values is neither possible. But it does not
have to contain those things anyway! The tone of the movie is certainly
amateurish, but still there is both a feeling of voyeurism and real
ambition, underlying values of moral and it’s fascinating at
the same time as it’s provoking and really gets under your skin.
Instead of the sexuality there’s lots and lots of black humour
in the story. Perhaps of the kind that goes unnoticeable the first
time but still its present. It’s a pretty clever dialog, but
even if it’s apparent where the storyline is going it’s
still a bit of a chock when it’s revealed for us. You get overwhelmed
by the obvious, so to speak. It’s macabre and totally disgusting
(in the most positive sense of the word) and it’s flavoured
with some really good and shocking gore effects. The blood might be
a little thin but as a whole it doesn’t really matter, the whole
point is not to shock with these effects and I’ve seen it done
a lot worse in big budgeted movies too.
