Total Bore
30 July 2003 | by tellysavalas_tbSee all my reviews

This is a very simple story told in a very complicated way. Past and reality change at the blink of an eye and it is hard to guess what happens when. Four friends invent a new 'love' drug and try to sell it abroad. The girl gets the drug to India but disappears and is presumed to be in prison. The others try to rescue her in an unimpressive way. Then Herman Brood turns up to get hold of the drug but they forgot how to make it (tssss).

I presume this is an over ambiguous project from young Israelian filmmakers who managed to get a big budget so they could shoot the film in Amsterdam and Goa. This film is only interesting for Herman Brood fans. The extra scenes on DVD show a hilarious clip of the director going to extreme lengths to explain Herman his part in the movie. The film itself is rather tedious and I wouldn't recommend it.
