This is one my favourite European films. The cinematography is glorious-it brings you into a really disturbing world. And it´s hilarious although, it´s probably not very pc to laugh at exploited siamese twins. The best thing about the film is the use of the camera to create a beautiful form in which manipulation, cruelty and despair are the subject.By comparision, the grittiness of The War Zone was pretty cold and isolating, which on top of the awfulness of the subject was just depressing-not that that is necessarily bad! Of freaks and men is one of the most progessively positive films to come out of Europe in the 90´s. That said....i´ll be on my way.
