    Rather pretentious, but the mood turns out to be captivating enough on the whole.

    Intrigante, perturbadora, interesante como buena peli Extranjera. Una trama sicologica que te enferma con el pasar del tiempo. Los errores del pasado tienen consecuencias a largo plazo.

    Perhaps not dead yet but we are surely taking our time.

    Really? That's how it ended?? It's like the writers couldn't come up with an ending. Ewen Leslie performs brilliantly, as always.

    Fascinating, but ultimately frustrating. That's my best summation. This powerful tale of regret and past sins is beautifully shot and feels great. Ewen Leslie is superb as Isaac, an Australian photographer, who visits his Greece, his father's land to spread his ashes and discover his family's history. He finds more then he bargained for however. There are many great scenes, but I felt the story could have been fleshed out and developed more to make it more satisfying then it ultimately was.

    Intriging and mysterious but it was hard to connect with the characters.

    Dead Europe maintains a tense atmosphere throughout the movie. The story travels from Australia to Greece, Paris and Belgium and follows the journey of Isaac on his first trip to Europe to scatter his father's ashes. Some interesting characters emerge that contribute to the stories that Isaac's family has been cursed. The film goes to some unexpected places, and has a brilliant cast that tackle the subject matter head on.

    I confess a certain bias - I am a fan of Ewen Leslie's work generally mainly because this talented actor is not shy of taking on controversial roles. The actor seems to have a knack for delving into the heart of madness and portraying tortured characters and this depressing film is no exception. It is a strange film and not an easy 'view' - really one for those who appreciate dark art house - but I found the mystery engaging albeit a slog in coming together to a sharp though not altogether unexpected conclusion.

    Worst fucking movie ever! I'd take stars away if I could. I'd rather watch Bring it On 100 times in a row. Sad...
