review by
Mike Haberfelner

Maria (Olga Safari) is one of the biggest pop stars of her time - but she's also deeply unhappy about what her life has become, how everything she does seems to be for the public eye, and how she doesn't have any privacy anymore. And that her boyfriend, director Danny (Bobby Slaski), points his camera at her at all times doesn't help either ... and then she has a freak accident. She comes out of it pretty much unscathed mind you, but now the media attention is only augmented by a host of rumours that really border the mean. So she and Danny decide to give a tell-all interview to exactly one reporter, to quiet at least some of the storm - and that reporter is Lilly (Andrea Figliomeni), who works for your typical celebrity tabloid after amounting to very little trying to make it as an actress in LA. Now the choice was rather random, but on the plus side she's a big fan of Maria - which doesn't mean she might not have an agenda of her own. That said, Maria quickly takes a liking to Lilly and invites her to stay for the night. This eventually leads to a spontaneous little party, and eventually the two women end up in bed together ... and the next day, their sexual exploits are all over the internet. Now this is bad, as it's quite unclear who could have filmed them let alone uploaded the footage, but what's worse is, there's somebody on the premises who seems to have ulterior (and quite homicidal) motives still ...

 

Now one thing up front, this film is by no means cliché-free, and it's also at times very blunt at its assumptions about popstar life. But at the sane time it does spin a very nice mystery with quite a few twists - including the very ending - that are sure to surprise one while still making narrative sense. Also the film's very nicely shot, making the most out of its cool location, and a solid ensemble cast carry the thing rather well, making this pretty good thriller entertainment.
