Critic Reviews for Head-On
A punky, noisy romance full of life and emotion and ideas that captures the moment in the style of contemporary classics such as My Beautiful Laundrette and Trainspotting.
That this marriage of convenience between two cultural misfits will eventually lead to love may sound like a contrivance, but that's not at all the way it plays. Akin's raw, powerful, multileveled movie takes us places we never expected to go.
Akin makes this a most intriguing, if roundabout, journey from despair to 'do something.'
The power of Akin's film, which is considerably aided by the two lead performances ... comes from the spectacle of people developing feelings for each other even through numbing layers of mutual narcissism, self-loathing and raging terror of intimacy.
Audience Reviews for Head-On
Sordid but compelling tale of amour fou.
Some people choose the hardest way to live/change.
"If you want to end your life, end it. You don't have to kill yourself to do that."
Ganhador do Urso de Ouro no Festival de Berlim, o longa nos apresenta a histÃ³ria de dois imigrantes que tentam se entender em um mundo que ninquÃ (C)m os entende. Uma fuga para farsa, que aos poucos um novo sentido Ã Â vida de ambos.
