The White Ribbon
Film Review


The White Ribbon immediately draws comparison with films by Ingmar Bergman and Lars Von Trier. Unlike in Bergman's films, here the black-and-white often feels desaturated or washed out. Unlike in von Trier's films (which I sometimes like even while disliking them), the darkness is unpoetical. -- I must admit I turned off the film at about the 90 minute mark, not because the abuse featured was fantastically horrorific but rather continually degrading. There was not much of a plot and no sense of mystery as to what was going on. There was no compelling reason to continue watching.
