Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region B : it WILL NOT play on regular DVD player, or on standard US Blu-Ray player. You need multi-region Blu-Ray player to view it in USA/Canada: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 5.1 ), English ( Dolby DTS-HD Master Audio ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.66:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Booklet, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Short Film, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: ***ATTENTION***This is a Dual Format Edition, which contains both Blu-Ray & DVD versions*** Jakob arrives at the Institute Benjamenta (run by brother and sister Johannes and Lisa Benjamenta) to learn to become a servant. With seven other men, he studies under Lisa: absurd lessons of movement, drawing circles, and servility. He asks for a better room. No other students arrive and none leave for employment. Johannes is unhappy, imperious, and detached from the school's operation. Lisa is beautiful, at first tightly controlled, then on the verge of breakdown. There's a whiff of incest. Jakob is drawn to Lisa, and perhaps she to him. As winter sets in, she becomes catatonic. Things get worse; Johannes notes that all this has happened since Jakob came. Is there any cause and effect? SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Fantasporto Awards, Stockholm Film Festival, ...Institute Benjamenta, or This Dream That One Calls Human Life ( Institute Benjamenta )
