Antares, a film that is as much about sex as it is about marriage and relationships and sadness, is the rare film that explores this elusive terrain with clarity and dignity. ----Washington Post

Brilliantly acted and directed! ----Time Out Chicago

5.0 out of 5 stars Careful Viewing Is Rewarded May 1, 2009
Format:DVD
Antares sounds like a reasonably normal film, the story of three couples living in a bleak apartment complex. This is far from an average normal film. This is an explicit film, not only for the intimate moments, but also in the way that people treat each other. The director, Götz Spielmann, has sparks of Tom Tykwer in him; he plays with the timeline and three different views of events. There is an ever so slight feeling of Run Lola Run (Run Lola Run).

This film is not for everyone. The film opens with a man in the back seat of a cab looking at intimate photographs of a woman. Suddenly the cab is hit by another car and the screen goes black. We are then transported to the horribly mundane life of a very beautiful blonde wife, housewife, nurse, mother; Eva. It turns out that Eva is having an affair with another man. Early in the film there is a very intimate explicit passionate scene between Eva and her lover. There is a shocking contrast between this scene and the following dinner scene with her husband and daughter. The second act of the film, connected through scenes or events from the first act, is of an almost dead looking white, blonde woman that is a cashier at the local grocery store. The second act is about her relationship with an imigrant. The third act is again connected through scenes in the first and second acts, and is about another blonde woman living in a separate building from the first two. This story is about the abusive relationship she has with her estranged husband.

This may seem like a detailed description of the plot that might give away some secrets, however, that could not be farther from the truth. This is a multilayered plot that twists over on itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Side of Human Nature October 18, 2010
Format:DVD
This is a subtitled German language film with explicit sexual activity and language. Yet, it should not be misconstued as X-rated porn.

Even though there is a close-up of someone's Wienerschnitzel in a hotel room, all of these scenes are secondary to the dramatic and well-crafted tales of men and women in modern day Vienna, struggling to come to terms with their sad, sordid and unfulfilling lives.

I would, however qualify my 5-Star Rating by noting that this movie is really for serious fans of foreign art films. Others are likely to be bored. This DVD is certainly quite lengthy, but manages to give good insights into the dark side of human nature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good story January 19, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't know why it is, but film makers around the world seem so much better at capturing the human psyche on film the those in the US. This up close examination of how peoples lives can be intertwined and the consequences good or bad makes for an excellent movie. This scenario could play out anywhere in any big city anywhere in the world. The acting was so good, the various situations so believable. Starts to make you wonder...is this happening somewhere in my life? Highly recommended!

2.0 out of 5 stars Very slow June 17, 2014

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
After a sexy start the movie became a slow depiction of a dysfunctional marriage with violence and of little dramatic appeal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Layered time-shifting art film May 28, 2014
Format:DVD
I loved this nearly two-hour character study of three couples living in a German city, each with relationship problems that manage to intersect before the ending. The director times shifts repeatedly, showing the same event from different perspectives as the film progresses. There is a sense of foreboding throughout. Though quite explicit at times, that's not the real nature of this thoughtful film, which tries to say something about love and mature relationships, and how men and women relate or fail to relate. The theme is universal, though the characters are mostly German. One couple seems to be immigrants. The settings are bleak throughout, which add to the darkness. Watch if you like moody foreign film noir.

Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
ok...this movie has everything you could want in an American movie ...lying, cheating, nudity & graphic sex - except its made in Austria. they speak German or close... and its sub-titled as if any one is reading the Words... i got about 10min into this and felt like i needed a shower...this one even comes w a "heads-up" but, hard-headed viewers like me might think, "well it can't be THAT BAD!". we would all be wrong!
