Critic Reviews for Small Apartments
A toxically quirky black comedy starring a morbidly obese albino who dreams of traveling to Switzerland.
Begins as a totally quirky novelty film with seemingly absurd, overdrawn and outrageous characters ... but ends up as an absolutely captivating, totally quirky novelty film - with heart and many surprises
The brazen, colourful nature of the characters is the strength of this black comedy from Jonas Åkerlund - and its topline cast. There's an additional, unexpected factor that does not hit us until the very end. It has a heart
Jonas Åkerlund's crass, cartoonish comedy about an oddball trying to dispose of his landlord's corpse.
Despite the film's distinctive look and the best efforts of the willing cast, this amusing, morbid and mildly misanthropic mélange always seems to be straining for effect.
Audience Reviews for Small Apartments
Not quite a 5 out of 5 but very close. This movie uses it's 1 hr 35 very well with the story continually developing throughout and keeping you guessing. With other movies there are clear flag points of the plot in which you know how the next half an hour of the plot is going to be focused. However with this plot it just consistently reveals itself bit by bit. There are some very dark themes explored in this movie including some of the lowest forms of human behaviour. It's gross at times but is actually quite real because we all have things we are ashamed of behind closed doors. It also explores themes of human insanity. Where that line ends and should society ultimately judge who is insane and who isn't? The characters are all brilliant and all acted very well. *Spoiler* This movie has a happy ending despite it's dark themes and provides a feel good sense for the human spirit. It is a totally unique piece of cinema.
Great cast, great character actors, just a little dull at times, and not as quirky as the director thought. Really great attempt at a very weird comedy, but just short of hysterical or memorably weird. I enjoyed viewing it and loved to see those actors together. Worth a view but not fantastic
A cst full of lovably eccentric nuts, along with a surprisingly restrained Billy Crystal in one of his best roles. The movie looks like a comedic character study, but is actually a surprisingly touching one, with the comedy being gently pushed to the side in such a way that you don't realize it's happening and don't even miss it when it's gone..
