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 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.

This movie was especially realistic. The acting was good and the principle actress was exceptionally erotic. Great interwoven story. Those in boring marriages where all seems stable ; beware. Somebody is getting some action the background.

Steamy, clever but, sometimes, ponderous. The movie wallows in sadness. The plot revolves around various interlinked affairs and each competes to be the least joyful. So, this is one to watch if you're tired of sunshine, laughter, love and optimism.

There is biased in the direction and production of this film towards liberation or escape despite the moral and economic price resulting from the acts of being unfaithful. The film succeeds in making the building in which of the human contact takes place the central character albeit lifeless. The metaphor of life moving on despite the actions of the players intertwined by a series of coincidences. The devices used and even the question of the destruction of family structure for personal friend dates the film. Society is non-static and human behavior ever evolving despite the saying 'there is nothing new under the sun'. Human sexual behavior has tempered given both physical and mental consequences in the past 20 years. However, in this structure of the 3 lives it is obvious changes are necessary despite the road ahead. In the end, this movie reflects the society of Eastern Europe eviscerating its economic, cultural and moral structure. In that sense, the ever present building with its adjacent park is like any country with rules and laws that remain as much as change swirls about; the option is anarchy and devolvement.

Well, this won't be something for everyone. I waited a long time for this film to be released here and on Netflix. It was worth the wait. First, it is not American-style filmmaking, and it is unlikely something like this could be produced here. The way in which the stores intertwine is quite fascinating; one has a good and just ending, the others leave it up to you to think about. It confirms that you really don't want to know what your neighbors get up to. It is sexy, foreign art house adult stuff; a very open mind is needed. If this appeals to you, watch it. If you prefer loads of gun violence, everyone is beautiful and lives in an amazing house along the Pacific Coast Highway, a horrible soundtrack of pop music, adolescent angst, and a happy ending, then go with Hollywood.

This is the most realistic movie with a banal scenario that I have seen in a long time, Nothing is fake, and it shows human nature for what it is. My guess the scenario had to be bland in order to make the characters the principal focus of this movie.

Excellent! No wonder it won so many awards. Taking one couple and their situation, it bleeds off to another only mildly connected to the first story, and then to a third until you have a clear - if complex - portrait of three different couples. all bound together by sex - or a lack of it. In a sense it is reminiscent of La Ronde, but more incisive, because it can concentrate on three specific couples.
