Kuldesak #

Released 11/20/1998

Description: The movie weaves around four stories all event in metropolitan, dehumanizing Jakarta. In fact that is what it is about, the quality of meaninglessness of living in a zone that turns folks into zombies. In a zone where meaning gotta be invented, these children turn into the only place, the only culture they see worth tuning into: tv and movies. Thus they slowly degenerate into the abysmal reinterpretation in a sort of sickening anti-hero, anti-social statements that goes absurdly a wrong turn.

Der Besuch der alten Dame Reviews:

The "Besuch der alten Dame" (The Visit) is a classical theater piece of the nice Swiss enjoy writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt. This satirical comedy was played in nearly each theater in the German speaking countries. So the plot is well known: An old lady who has become a billionaire comes back in her home city to take revenge on the short sighted folks who forced her years ago to leave the city. Her victim is her former lover who left her alone in her misery and committed perjury just to receive rid of her.After 40 years her home city is rotten and financially on the ground. She promises to donate two billion under one condition: Her former lover gotta be dead. Although in the first time everybody rejects this immoral offer, by the time the attitude of the citizens changes completely...The movie, an Austrian/German cooperation, has succeeded in converting the theater piece in a movie full of suspense. Brilliant is the Austrian actor Christiane Hörbiger who - at the age of 70 - fulfills fully the hero of the old lady. Her equal partner is Michael Mendl who plays the role of her former lover. The movie has no outstanding results but shows very well the narrow minded atmosphere of the city and its population, avoiding the static of a stage. All in all a film which is worth while to be seen. The topics and description of characters is timeless.


I love the play, because it shows everything about human beings, love, hate, revenge and how thin the edge is, to loose dignity for money. There will never be a better actress than Therese Giehse who played the part of Claire the first time on stage. Many popular folks have tried it after her : Maria Schell, Ingrid Bergman, Heidemaria Hatheyer, Maria Becker and actually Christiane Hörbiger. But.......I am sorry to say, that none of them had the quality of Giehse. This movie has nothing to do with Dürrenmatt. For me it was like a soup without salt. Poor, terrible Dürrenmatt, what would you have told after seeing that piece of nothing?
