Jawab #

Released 3/22/1942

Description: Manoj is from the aristocratic class but has some sort retrograde amnesia; he belongs to the upper-class but is also an outsider, something that enables the chances of movement across the class-lines for him. This trope is essential for Barua to articulate the criticism of the indolent upper class in the film. Thus Manoj is both an object of criticism and ridicule while also being one of the critics.

Rohtenburg Reviews:

I have to tell that this movie caught me by finished surprise. I expected it to be a typical "Hostel" type of horror movie. But the opposite was the case. Rohtenburg is an wonderful shot movie that draws you into a private storyline and tutorials you slowly into the darkness of a disturbed mind. Vs all odds i was pleasantly surprised about this film. I do understand though that this movie will raise a lot of controversy and have folks not understand it or love or hate it. This movie has no grey area, it is hate or love for sure, since it doesn't slumber through the mediocre horror category formulas and has very tiny blood for the die difficult horror fans. It works on a psychological lvl and goes method deeper than i expected, now giving me sleep problem for two nights.This is a very various film. I don't think i have ever seen anything like it. I would suggest it.


I can't support but wonder, after reading so many negative reviews, if folks really got this movie. Yes, it is a commentary on a depraved culture. But, as the narration points out, the necessary things are not what makes us various from folks like cannibal Oliver Hartwin, but what makes us the same.As Hartwin, Thomas Kretschmann does a nice job in a role that can be described in a mastery of understatement as "difficult." He plays a boy who fantasizes about eating human flesh. He finds the yin to his yang in Simon Groembeck (Thomas Huber, equally superb), a boy who's veritable truckload of I.S.S.U.E.S. see him abandoning his GQ model boyfriend to be eaten by a guy with a Herman Munster haircut and a predilection for beige. Go figure. They hook up over that nice haven for all the demented and depraved - the Internet. Go team! Kerri Russell narrates the movie in a somewhat unnecessary framing device. Quite frankly, what I found most irritating about the movie were the most over obvious attempts to sell it internationally - Russell is the known "face" but the majority of the cast is comprised of German actors. Why not movie it in German? Why not drop Russell altogether and instead focus on the relationship between the two men? A relationship which is, in its own way, oddly affecting. For as the game implies...this is a love story.Well, come on. How many films does Hollywood churn out annually based on the central premise of a girl (once upon a time Meg Ryan, lately her mini-me Reese Witherspoon) and a boy (preferably Hugh Jackman but Tag Ruffalo or one of the Wilson brothers in a pinch) who are made for every other? When you really examine it, this movie is based around the same premise. These are two boys who are, in Russell's own words as she drably narrates, a excellent match. Far too much screen time is given to Russell poking around Hartwin's farm house and looking generally freaked out, at the expense of the developing of the relationship between two real oddballs. This is not creature and victim - these are two lonely boys who have found every other, and not nearly enough time is devoted to the why of it all.In it's look, the movie very much honors it's topics matter, to nice effect. It is shot mostly in muted tones, yet avoids the trap related movies have fallen into - namely looking too dark and leaving the audience wondering if they need to turn the contrast on their TV up. Very much a 1970s horror film feel. Intelligent tricks abound - we see a grisly horror movie being enjoyed by Hartwin reflected on his eyeball in an extreme close up, while in an earlier flashback the camera travels under the sheets to watch him reading under his bedclothes as a child. The running time is concise, a mere hour and a half, with the majority of the film's most hard to watch scenes occurring in the final twenty minutes. There is the odd unexpected moment of black humor - yes, you feel guilty for chuckling - while the bare bones script is stripped of exposition and all the better for it. On the entire it is a well made movie, not what you'd call entertaining, but a worthy watch none the less.


Both this movie and Marian Dora's "Cannibal" were inspired by the unbelievably inhuman yet real-life horror situation of Armin "The Rohtenburg Cannibal" Meiwes. Meiwes was a lonely and introvert homosexual who placed an internet add, looking for volunteers to receive slaughtered and consumed by him. It didn't take that long before he got a response from Bernd Jürgen Brandes, other homosexual who treasured a life-long dream of having his penis chopped off and eaten. Like the script states at few occasions: these two formed a excellent match. Even though both movies remain faithful to the grueling and sickening facts, they are two fully various viewing experiences. This movie is more like a 'light' ver of the facts (but, mind you, still shocking enough to upset folks with a low stomach), whereas "Cannibal" is a downright brutal and uncompromising film. "Grimm Love" supposedly takes zone after the facts and the storyline is re-enacted via the research and profiling of an American psychology student (Keri Russell) residing in Germany to work on her thesis. This wraparound storyline is now rather redundant, since Russell only appears on screen in order to url together all the flashbacks that build up towards the two men's fatal cannibalistic meeting. Unlike "Cannibal", this movie dedicates a huge amount of time digging up the men's backgrounds and illustrating their personalities. The voluntary victim Bernd Jürgen Brandes (renamed Simon Grombeck) forcefully hated the reproduction organ between his legs and apparently blamed himself for his mother's suicide, because she once caught him and other man testing doctor. Armin Meiwes (renamed Oliver Hartwin) had problems with his mother as well, but she was more of a dominant and overly protective type. He developed cannibalistic tendencies after she died and eventually the unlimited occasions of the almighty internet brought these wandering souls together. I search it praiseworthy that both films, especially considering the gruesome themes, succeed in clarifying to the audiences that this is, in fact, primarily an (unusual) love storyline rather than a gratuitous exploitation flick. It's a portrait of two boys who're social outcasts due to their unacceptable sexual desires. This was even clearer in "Cannibal", since the two boys shared all the screen time together as from the opening sequence, but even "Grimm Love" successfully reflects the affectionate and deeper relationship between the two 'monsters'. However, this film suffers from a handful of dreadfully tedious moments and it sadly remains too vague about the disturbing things that happened after the castration. Meiwes stored Brandes' corpse on a meat hook in his basement and continued to eat his pal for few more months after the current killing. This movie only briefly mentions this tiny feature somewhere at the beginning. The cinematography is pleasingly dark and depressing, and the slow pacing and grim set-pieces contribute to the building up of an overall uncanny atmosphere as well. Martin Weisz' direction is subtly creepy and he clearly doesn't aim for sensationalism here. The German actors are very competent as well, even though they are for some reason forced to speak their lines in hesitant English… My main complaint regarding this production, as stated by another reviewers already as well, is the international hero of the film. Why the involvement of a fictionalized American student hero working on a psychology thesis? Why narrate the storyline through flashbacks, for that matter? Russell's role is entirely redundant and her hero isn't even plausible anyway. For someone who has been obsessed and fascinated with the situation for more than 3 years, she really sucks at watching graphic cannibalism on tape.
