this is a dutch gangster movie which lays on the brooding tension a bit thick – think lots of rain and a cat… killing .. a mouse.
nothing really happens which is ok, but i would prefer this as a quirky comedy. i think the japanese or americans or even the english do heavy gangsters better.
i don’t really like seeing Q&As for movies i’m not keen on but D who slept through pretty much the whole thing (and the short at the beginning as well! impressive!) wasn’t ready to move so we stayed…
we learnt that the director was proud of the symbolism (ummmm) and he called it helium after having a different working title, because he wanted a wacky intriguing title (nouja… neee)
NO SQUEAKY VOICES. NO BALLOONS. WHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAT.
