No one ever sets out to create a terrible film, but somehow they receive made anyway. "Drosme Nogalinat" (The Courage to Kill) is a terrible movie and in so many various methods that it's not simple to pinpoint where it went wrong or why it was made in the first place. It should be the script. It isn't often that you run across an oedipal complex storyline set in a strip club/bordello. Our Oedipal hero, Erik (Armands Reinfelds), seems to earn a living by cross-dressing (as, surprise, Erika) so that he can mark along with the women when a patron decides to take one of them home. He then ransacks the house while the john has his method with the girl. The only time we see him now attempt this he gets beaten to a bloody pulp. I tell "seems" because he doesn't seem to do much another than hang out in the strip club. I'd imagine that couldn't be cheap. You would think that the owners of the club would eventually wise-up. It can't be nice for business. Nor is it clear why exactly someone who has just scored two pretty girls would only pay attention to one of them while the another has gratis run of his house. I've never read Oedipus Rex or seen the play. I understand that it isn't very subtle either, but I don't think this is quite what Sophocles had in mind. But Erika does look stunning in her high heels. There are many another flaws in the script. You can't have an Oedipus without a father, but another than the predictable flashback stage where Erik watches his father create love to the maid that young Erik is in love with, we're not sure what motivates either character. The father just shows up and moves into Erik's apartment one day. Much to Erik's dismay. Where he was before, why he chose to present up just then, and why Erik doesn't just kick him out or just simply change the locks isn't made clear. Well, it's clear enough, but not particularly imaginative. Oedipus needs a father. Otherwise, it wouldn't be much of a complex. It should be the acting. As you can say by the game and storyline this isn't a very subtle film.Neither are the performances. This is the type of movie where characters laugh too loud.Their feelings are spelled out on the screen in capital letters. There is no middle ground. It should be the direction. This movie was based on a enjoy and I would assume that the enjoy wasn't nearly as bad, otherwise, why makeover it as a film? Unfortunately, things that work in an intimate theater setting don't everytime work on film. You have to ratchet them down just a bit. For example, Erik is walking down a hallway and bumps into a stripper. They obviously have a past. She grabs him by the crotch and suggests he stop by later. Receive it? The name of the production company that made "Drosme" is "Between Europe and Hong Kong Productions". I hope this was some sort of allusion to the movie categories of Europe and Hong Kong. It would be the most constructive touch of this film. Europe is popular for making movies of artistry and depth. They are not scared to tackle taboo topics and show them in a method that does not pander to the lowest common denominator. When they work. When they don't they seem pretentious and boring. As exciting as witnessing a third-rate poet's therapy session in a badly lit room. Hong Kong is known for exciting action movies which hide what they lack in nuance and storyline by keeping the action coming at such a furious pace and with such visual panache that you don't have much time to dwell on it. When they work. When they don't there is no amount of atmospheric lighting and quick paced editing that can create you not regret picking films because of the cool cover art and the blurbs on the back of the video box. Europe and Hong Kong can be a unbelievable combination when it works. In "Drosme" it doesn't and you are left with the worst of both worlds.
