Critic Reviews for Absurdistan
Absurdistan has more than a little bit of magic at its heart; it's a tale of love and perseverance, gently winking at its happy viewers.
Writer-director Veit Helmer creates a wildly imaginative world worthy of Gabriel Garca Mrquez at his most playful, drenching it in vivid color and a Slavic sense of bleak humor.
Despite its comedic limitations, this film is up to more than its American adolescent counterparts.
Audience Reviews for Absurdistan
This movie is really fun despite having little to no dialogue between the characters. There's voice overs for the main two characters that ties everything together but everything else are visual gags and creative use of slapstick. I would definitely recommend this movie, it's fun and charming.
Registering onto Rotten Tomatoes just to be able to rate this movie, I only wish that there were more films like this one (and less sequels ;-).
A young couple's about-to-be-consummated love is threatened when the women of their village organize a sex strike against the lazy townsmen who will not fix the pipe that brings water to the hamlet. Set in an exotic, timeless locale and so spare with it's dialogue that it's almost like a silent movie; it's a lusty romantic comedy that manages to feel completely original without sacrificing the romance and sentimentality fans of the genre expect.
