A film locked up to be special.
The bravery to tackle an issue that has even brought the risk of being locked up is what I mostly admire about this film. Although it took quarter of a century before it finally reaches the public, its being locked up seems to have preserved the radiant significance of its history--that, "for its struggle," it passed through several revisions of its script along the path of censorship.The actors' performances were magnificent and deserves a remark such swell. The treatment of the film, despite the seriousness of the issue tackled, remains not wholly burdened. What's noticeable to me are the matches used in the film to shift an event from space and time to the next. "The Rabbit is Me" is a truly precious work that lead a trend in the GDR documents. Special, 'tis! I'm giving this film an 8.
