Movie Reviews

A gem of a film
T. Smith | USA | 03/12/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Souvenir is gripping, thrilling and emotional. It's a mystery/thriller film with so much substance, it really pulls you in as an audience member. The characters are provocative and their relationships very unpredictable. It is also a great portrait of Los Angeles with unusual locations shot in a most creative way. Although I liked the music, I thought it may have been a little over done. Overall, the timely topic, story and style add up to a very enjoyable film experience."
A vital and profoundly moving film
N. Filipic | Slovenia, Europe | 04/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In Souvenir a viewer first submerges into a very seductive atmosphere created by inovative lighting and shooting techniques, and then the story starts unfolding with unhurried but powerful twists. The characters are easy to identify with, but at the same time they appear almost like zombies inhabiting this dark sensual world of old art, sexual tensions and greed. It's been a while since I've seen Souvenir at a festival but I still carry the images and scenes in me. The filmmakers offer a very visceral experience by creating this project; Souvenir touches your heart as much as it affects your brain. American sense of storytelling is combined with European artistic touch. A totally unique story, which doesn't only rely on historical facts, but reaches out to examine a larger picture of post - colonial world."
Souvenir - It's Not Just the Sex
E. JOHNSON | NY, NY USA | 03/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Souvenir is one of the few movies out there that shines light on one of the hottest themes of today's art world - illegal appropriation of art. Good thing: It doesn't feel preachy. In fact, the film adds a sexy smart to what could be - in less-skilled hands - a potentially dry topic. Beautifully shot, fantastically lit and full of suspense, this film has plenty for everyone -- thrill, mystery, and pure, natural romance. (I love the sweet bicycle ride...awww) NOTE: Director Natasa Prosenc has created some of the steamiest sex scenes I've encountered in cinema! I look forward to more work by this director. MUST SEE!"
