It Doesn't Make Any Sense.

It's a dutch movie so i wasn't expecting anything (no offense), but i end up having somewhat an enjoyable time.

I knew that it's a weird movie, in fact, that was the reason why i watched it, but it didn't look weird at the beginning, the first hour was somewhat normal, and you can see a plot building, but the 2nd hour was so weird, that i lost the ability to connect things, i realized that the movie is not trying to be logical at all, so i stopped thinking about it, and just enjoyed it for what it was.

It's a story about three guys, each one live in a separate room in the ground surrounded by tunnels, so in the beginning, there's three people getting armed and ready to attack one of the guys, so he escapes before they reach him, and he starts warning his two friends, so they can also escape, then the movie starts following one of the ground guys (Camiel) as he knock a door of a random house asking them if he can get a shower their, and because he insists on going in the house, a guy beat him and kick him out, but Camiel didn't escape after been beating up, instead, he hides in the same house, and the wife of the guy who beat him up starts helping him out of guilt, and a weird relationship starts between them.

The movie looks very psychological, it seemed as Camiel have this ability to make women, (in this case Marina) into him, she starts lying to her husband, and having weird dreams, that when she wakes up, starts hitting her husband because he attacked her in the dream, and Camiel also have the ability to snoop around in the house without anyone seeing him, he starts to go the children room and telling them bed time stories, and until that, the movie looked ok, but in the 2nd half of the movie, everything became weird, Camiel told Marina that i'm leaving the house because "i want to play", and she tell him to stay and she will offer him another larger place, so he poison the framer and take him to his house and kill him along with his wife and takes his job as a farmer and so many other things happen that were very hard to explain.

So, let me explain what i meant by not making any sense, first we don't know if Camiel told Marina that he's going to kill the farmer and take his job, we don't know how his power works, or what was the point of these two dogs, we don't know if his two friends also have these powers, most importantly, we don't know if the wife, the husband, their nanny and their kids, were acting natural or were possessed, it's very hard to see the pattern, so you can guess what's gonna happen next, in the 2nd hour, i was completely lost and had no idea what's happening or what should be happening, why the wife was acting strange and became normal, was the husband normal or he was also acting strange, what happened to the kids, what that guy did to the nanny, why a farmer building a theater in the garden, why the wife was so horny about Camiel, why there wasn't a sex scene at all, and why she asked him to kill her husband.

One thing, i should mention that although it didn't make any sense, i was kinda enjoying it, i don't usually enjoy movies that are manipulative, in fact, a plot mistake in a movie sometimes makes me angry, but somehow i kinda enjoyed this movie, the movie atmosphere was enjoyable, sometimes even funny, so i didn't feel bored at all, but still it's movie with no story, with no plot, with no logic.

Overall, Non-logical, weird movie but somehow entertaining for unknown reasons.
