| So boring
I decided to watch this as it was free with my Curzon membership and I have appreciated some of Haneke's other films, like Funny Games (original) and Hidden. This, however, was extremely, mind-numbingly dull. I enjoy experimental, artistic films; I seek them out rather than Hollywood blockbusters. I understand the fact that it is based on Kafka (some of which I have also read any enjoyed) and is a satire on bureaucracy. But this just dragged on and on and on. I couldn't wait for it to end and wondered why I had wasted these two hours of my life! The only plus point is that I learned the German word for Land Surveyor (Landvermesser). One to avoid unless you have A LOT of patience.
