I have seen Barbara Albert's Free Radicals three times now and could surely watch it 10 times more, finding something else on each visit to salve the soul.
Brims with energy, carefully drawn characters and fine acting, and sad-eyed Deborah Ten Brink, as Manu's daughter, is a scene-stealer.
Deftly intercutting between several tenuously-connected lives, Barbara Albert's astringent drama is transformed by bright flashes of compassion.
An intelligent, viscerally intellectual exercise in ensemble acting and associative montage, enlivened with some terrific visual and dramatic ideas.
At once too densely populated and too clinically detached.
A complex, moving examination of the human condition.
The parallel stories don't always dovetail with each other smoothly, but the acting is strong and the atmosphere is powerful.
Albert leaves viewers with the intriguing notion that we're as much at the mercy of measurable physical forces as we are of the irrational.
Aside from a few brief glimmers of hope or happiness, director Barbara Albert piles her compilation of abject misery a bit too high.
A shattering experience.
Cynicism without entertainment.
The actors showed up, the camera was on, but the script wasn't up to the task.
