The flat on the third floor of a Bauhaus building in Tel Aviv was where my grandparents lived since they immigrated to Palestine in the 1930s. Were it not for the view from the windows, one might have thought that the flat was in Berlin. When my grandmother passed away at the age of 98 we were called to the flat to clear out what was left. Objects, pictures, letters and documents awaited us, revealing traces of a troubled and unknown past. The film begins with the emptying out of a flat and develops into a riveting adventure, involving unexpected national interests, a friendship that crosses enemy lines, and deeply repressed family emotions. And even reveals some secrets that should have probably remained untold...
As a documentarian cleans out the flat that belonged to his grandparents - both immigrants from Nazi Germany - he uncovers clues pointing to a complicated and shocking story. . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki
Richard D (kr) wrote: Francis (Bruce Greenwood) visits the strip club Exotica every night and gets Christina (Mia Kirshner) to dance for him. There's clearly something deep, personal and not entirely sexual between them. The club's DJ Eric (Elis Koteas) is Christina's former lover and has an unhealthy interest in what's going on between Francis and Christina. Francis's day job is an a tax auditor, and he's auditing the books a pet shop owned by Thomas (Don McKellar), who is hiding a lucrative smuggling business. Thomas will get pulled into the situation in the club. Everyone in this slow, methodical psycho-drama is connected via tight circles. Francis hires his niece to babysit even though he appears to have no child ... how is this connected to his relationship with Christina? The club owner (Arsine Khanjian) is pregnant ... how is this related to Christina's anger at Eric? Ultimately, almost all questions are answered, and the common link between these characters is need.

It was so bad and so idiotic I had to walk out. Perhaps one of my top 10 worst films I've paid to see.

Alex C (br) wrote: Incredible Documentary, Marc Singer went homeless making this film about a group of people living in an abandoned Subway tunnel under Manhattan. A harsh testament to man's ability to adapt and survive. Required viewing.

Sam A (gb) wrote: A haunting and eerily creepy tale that is crafted with sheer beauty. The images and story of this classic of Japanese film making are second to virtually none. A very enjoyable film of an ancient fable, something you don't see a lot of these days, let alone when this was made.

Mike C (us) wrote: Inspiring! Such a great testimony of the power of Christ making a difference through one so that so many can shine with him. Jon Voight as Paul Bear Bryant was great - especially his aim to "mold men" with the game of football. A few minor plot lines were loose ends but it doesn't affect the impact of the movie. Highly recommended!

Not only its funny its sexy and gory too. Actually this movie is hard to categorise in a particular way. The grave scene dialogue from nina was unforgettably funny.
