Paradies: Liebe – **1/2

Posted: January 20, 2013 in 2012, Austria, Dramedy, Social Drama, XX1/2

Great: the photography (awesome) and the acting of Margarete Tiesel (daring)

Good: the movie’s theme (sex tourism in Kenya) and the way it was presented (very realistic)

Interesting: the fact that none of the characters are good looking or remotely personable.

Weird: the feeling of being a voyeur and the feeling that you’re laughing at a seriously sad subject

Bad: the depiction of Africans (racist) and the African actors (amateur)

 

All in all a weird experience with a lot uncomfortable moments. Very much in your face and very confronting.
