So tired of this genre
It seems as if filmmakers in Denmark can only one type of film over and over. Isn't this obvious to anyone else?

And another thing - if you're going to tell a story like Villa Paranoia, which has been told time and time again, you had better make sure you do it in an original way. Unfortunately it is not. I had to fight to keep my eyes open. Luckily the guy next to me was snoring, so that helped.

There isn't even any payoff after sitting through this overlong piece of fiction. The characters are written as boring clichés with minimal and/or predictable arch (if any) and never once do they do or say anything original. The best actor in the film doesn't even speak until 3/4 of the way through. And I can't understand why Eric Clausen would ever choose Søren from Big Brother to play one the main characters. That's right, I said Big Brother, like in the TV show. I mean, come on, aren't there hundreds of educated actors in Denmark who are starving for work?

Well, at least it wasn't shot on DV like most Danish films (It was shot on the new Sony IMX). So if nothing else, the picture quality was good and the cinematography was well done.

But this was a "wait for video" film for sure. I guess I should have figured that much out when I walked into the theater and immediately noticed I was the only one in there under 60.
