review by
Mike Haberfelner

Marie Wankelmut (Susanne Wolff) once was a successful comicbook artist - but as things go, after her most popular graphic novel, she simply ran out of ides for a sequel. She has moved to Amsterdam, to the Red Light District, for inspiration, but this has really turned into little more than an excuse to get drunk most nights, and get into trouble in the process. And at one point, she even has the idea to steal some money through an open window from the brothel next door. When she meets the chief pimp of the place, Dragomir (Drago Bucur), the next day, it dawns upon her that this was not such a great idea ... and then one of the prostitutes (Anna Tenta) is killed because she's believed to have taken the money, and somehow Marie becomes involved into everything - and now really finds herself with her back against the wall ...

 

Bloody Marie, despite being full of genre mainstays, most certainly isn't your run-of-the-mill crime drama, rather it's a very unusual character study of its lead character, one that doesn't follow a traditional narrative structure but at times drifts off into associative storytelling, that favours a dream-like atmosphere over down-to-earth spectacle, every now and again surprises with absurd details, but also shows a certain level of grittiness and a punk rock approach to keep things grounded after all. The result is a highly original and in look and feel very "European" genre blend that manages to keep one entertained throughout while gleefully ignoring all formulas, and that certainly makes for an interesting watch.
