a brilliant piece of artistic work with thrilling entertainment
Fata Morgana is the perfect movie for all folks that are looking for a different kind of story telling. According to me the director has the rare courage and the passionate talent to tell us something about relationships in an extraordinary way. The viewer becomes silent witness of what happens to a couple when they are thrown back completely on themselves, loosing their sense of orientation in every kind of way,struggling not only for pure survival but also for their belief system and their love. In order to enjoy this movie you have to dive into the desert with the protagonists. The viewer himself has to have the courage to let go and follow the way the director is leading us- it's an exciting journey and yet exhausting. It's what I call a very special piece of artistic and psychological work of one of the upcoming new German directors. Just run and see it!
