Definitely I never want to see it again, which I never before thought about a actually well made film by the way, and it feels odd giving this a heart rating but I think this is very well done and provokes the right emotions. It's an unforgiving movie that does not hold back at all. There were many scenes where I really needed to look away, which usually never ever happens for me. It's a film about what happens when you just completely believe in the goodness of humanity. It is harsh, but for sure true. You're gonna get stepped on and you're gonna get messed up. You obviously can't blindly live with some strangers and think, this will all be good, people are such beautiful creatures. No. Surely not. Apparently this is even based on a real story, which in this case makes it even more sad, but I'll need to research this later. How the main character got to that point in his life, slight spoilers ahead, is never explained which I think was a smart choice. Tore tanzt made me sick to my stomach to be honest. It is deeply disturbing and despairing, but it is also a film you should watch anyway. The performances are very good, especially the lead is incredibly great in such a tough role to play. Just be prepared to be in a terrible mood afterwards. I need a palate cleanser flick right now. This film is horrible, but simply looking away from the evil that is happening all around us isn't gonna do any good either.
