Critic Review - NewsBlaze

A disturbing headscratcher likely to leave an audience feeling more abused than entertained.

Fritz Klein

Kinky S&M in a German thing? I don't think so... Porno is definitely a California phenomenon (at least from a German perspective) :o)

I don't think that the movie is supposed to feel like sexualised od fetishised violence - Haneke wanted to "show violence as what it is -" an I think he succeeded at that - in rendering the film largely indigestible.
Only psychos will be able to make this film "their own".
But I agree, people should be warned.
Unlike movies that "leave you impressed for days" this one leaves you with painful squares in your stomach - I think it's safe to say this film is bad for your health.
