aka Kitchen Privileges. This is a lethargic, deathly slow-paced take on the Roman Polanski classic Repulsion, only bereft of imagination. Marie's agoraphobia is played in a bizarre, totally unrealistic fashion, and Katharina Wressnig's performance alternates between sleepwalking and shrillness. Very little works here except an occasional inspired visual moment (most of which are taken from Repulsion), and I can't even recommend this for die-hard fans of Peter Sarsgaard, as this is easily his weakest performance - though given the quality of the material he's given that's hardly a shocker. Definitely safe to skip this.
