This film, in the sensation reminded Leon. After it is exactly the same "pain in chest".

Before us is a drama. In it describes the life of a man, by fate, thrown out of  the"middle" way of life, a business of selling some hormones, livestock, forced to constantly make testosterone injections.

First, the impression is that is it a bouncer, working in the dirty. But then we learn about the tragedy, about how it came closest friend, and begin to understand its severity. On the entire film watching the two former friends. For them something opposite, and something very similar fates. For that as tried diderik it failed to correct his mistake. Despite an attempt to Dodge to the normal life is a thank was able, the past came back for him, and maybe he chose the past?

Play Matthias Sunarti worthy of all praise, in his character was unbelievable, he sincerely soperezhivat. In this really helped oppressive, depressive atmosphere of the film. "Belogolovogo" difficult to see, difficult to describe, but it should look.

In this film you have to think about it at as you progress in the story to relate to my head required strings. Yes, admittedly, sometimes it is difficult, and some scenes not be without the focused review, but Michael R. Roskam in its debut is not removes the criminal background is the most important. She is likely to a schematic of a mosaic of the intricacies of which neatly brings us to the main point.

And most importantly — tragic story how the cruelty that happened a long time ago, not dies, and just waits and eventually transforms into something more global, in a tragedy, against which pale in comparison to everyday human passions. Roskam talks about the normal people, one point had to deal with the consequences of almost forgotten acts, Jackie Weimaraner, people with bruised by fate, becomes a reluctant actor that starts the chain of inevitable and disastrous events. Because any human patience, one day comes a bitter end.

"Jerk" is suitable for attentive, sensitive spectator, who has time and follow the UPS and downs, and to experience empathy with the hero, whose the pain rises again in the threefold size. For a debut, the Director has shown very decent, although sometimes rough, but authentic performance of the actors helps the film to get to the desired bar and become a quality drama with not the most fun finish. The however, this finish in many cases it is useful, therefore, the "Jerk" to viewing is recommended.

I personally thought the film was about the meaninglessness and loneliness. The main character, is quite adequate and a nice guy, but unfortunately to live as not all can. It is quite a common phenomenon, many people do not able to live at all causes physical or mental in nature.

Our main character is not can live as all very serious and very unpleasant reason. The problem is so serious that do not leaves no chance for life. The problem is that I have which complete and even excessive dose of the present testerone, but it can't have sex, is in some sense the congestion of energy, which prevents to live harmonically in tune with a world. You don't think that have many people especially in young age? Well, the majority, there are exceptions, of course) i.e. the person lacks libido. On as I think the problem of hero "t-bone" actual for many people who despair to find a soul mate, but in this story the situation is so desperate and solutions is that the tragic end was just the inevitable.

Background running cattle is as a metaphor for the cattle that is born, then it are stuffed with growth hormones, then the animal is gaining the peak of his form and die (its hacked on the meat). From the animals living on the will have a chance that they will live long and can catch the beast and eat more rigid than killer on the farm. Who knows the animal will reside. Here our hero how animals on the farm not a chance were they had to die on the peak of his physical form. I think it was made for that the audience would have seen how hopeless this situation, and then thought that may not necessary to overload the drama of his own life)

The narration in the film by the way is extremely vital, clear and minimalistic, no hesitation in hand, no joke, is focused on a hopeless and terrible situation.
