IFFR 2012: Totem

Written By: frenchy on January 28, 2012 No Comment


Movie: Totem (Jessica Krummacher, DE, 2011, 86 min.) imdb link

Date: Jan 26, 2012

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
(weird, slow and an unbelievable ending)

Plot: Well.. A family has justed added another member to the household: a maid has come to live with them. The mother and father both are quite a bit lost; but the new addition seems to be the perfect catalyst for whatever’s bugging them. Now, what’s bugging her?

Cast: Nothing too spectacular, I guess the maid character had some good moments

Visuals: Nothing noteworthy

Conclusion: This is a very slow and slightly annoyingly uneventful movie. There’s a catch: the only Thing that leaves an impression is the closing scene. The last 10 seconds change the whole movie experience: did I miss something, should I’ve seen it coming, what? Not a good way to tell a story.
