In the bourgeois circles of Europe after the Great War, can anything save the modern man? Harry Haller, a solitary intellectual, has all his life feared his dual nature of being human and being a beast. He's decided to die on his 50th birthday, which is soon. He's rescued from his solipsism by the mysterious Hermine, who takes him dancing, introduces him to jazz and to the beautiful and whimsical Maria, and guides him into the hallucinations of the Magic Theater, which seem to take him into Hell. Can humour, sin, and derision lead to salvation?

(de) wrote: An entertaining stylish and bloody thriller not without it's flaws. But where it lacks in plausibility it makes up for it with it's creepy and surreal imagery, nicley tuned atmosphere and a whole lot of heart. It's just a shame this film is being overlooked by the horror community. Give it a glance, you might like what you see.

These dudes, once they drop all the chicks in their lives, seem much happier. Only occassionally do they need the 'comforts of women,' but that's an aside to the all-man show going on. Either that or it might be my modern sensibilities reading too much into it. Nah.

But I recently decided to give it another shot per the credentials of the Farrelly Brothers, who have made some really funny movies. I certainly liked it better the second time around and it had some amusing moments, but I wasn't a fan of how the movie ended. (First and only full viewing - Early 2013)
