(kr) wrote: Low-rent made for TV Christmas movie... Shot in California... Barely set designed to make it look "Christmasy"... Felt extremely unnatural in writing. But Nicole De Boer is adorable - which is good, because she was the selling point for me to watch this. Very uncaptivating flick.
(ag) wrote: Exceptional!!! Without doubt one of the best films that I have watched in a long time. A gritty, true to life storyline with very natural performances, particularly from the two main characters. This film held me from the get go and never failed to grab my attention throughout. Quite a frightening reality, which makes it a sensational Drama. This is a film that should be on everyone's "must see" list (or at the very least every Brit's "must see" list).

(ag) wrote: The camera in Marseille seems to be a mere spectator. Unaware of it is portraying, it unveils Sophie only when she allows to be observed. Unable to invade her privacy, it can only, like we, form a sketch of the young photographer, without never glimpse her interior. Schanelec says she wanted to show the mental state of Sophie, herr reactions to what happens to her, the consequences, and not things that she could leave to our imagination; however, these gaps, these fleeting spaces are what form the whole picture and are the most interesting about it. As Sophie takes pictures of Marseille to see it and then understand it, we join the "snapshots" of her stay in Marseille and of her life in Berlin in order to form the complete picture, without knowing that it will never be completed. The transition from Marseille to Berlin is quite interesting, since it occurs without any prior notice. The only sign is the change of the language, or, for those who have watched Angela Schanelec's previous films, the presence of the actress Sophie Aigner, protagonist of Place in the City and one of the characters of "Passin Summer" (the little boy Louis Schanelec is also present in all the three films). Another interesting point in Marseille is the presentation of Ivan and Hanna and their jobs: the long minutes he photographs workers of a factory and when we follow the exhaustive reharsal of Strindberg's The Dance of Death where Hanna plays the maid Jenny, initially seem to be unconnected parts that not belong to the film we are watching. Sophie's relationship with the couple is also another unclear point. Although the synopsis presented by Peripher Filmverleih says that Hanna is her best friend and that Sophie nurtures an undeclared love for Ivan, their relationship is much closer to a relationship of sisters and the supposed love was something I never considered. Reading about the movie, I came to a review where the author raises the possibility of a parallel between Marseille and Chekhov's "The Seagull "that, in fact, appears in Schanelec's next film:"We think of Chekhov, of course, not only because the child is called Anton (Anton Chekhov), but also because of this sly, mild, severe, deep and bright tone - all at the same time. Also, Chekhov is mentioned. Anton talks about her mother, that said in a play: 'I am a seagull'. "

(jp) wrote: The first half was hard for me to sit through because of the over the top lurid violence and bizarre editing. The second half was much more intriguing in its statement on the lack of morality in the media. In the end this is a love story.
(au) wrote: One of the worst actually, but it still has value.. but not as funny and complete as later storys.
(ag) wrote: An oddball black comedy that engages with a quirky style and natural performances from Steve Oram and especially Alice Lowe. It's definitely not the sort of serial killer flick that we're used to seeing, but Ben Wheatley and team deliver a unique piece that worthy of some attention.
