Iron Sky, 2012

Iron Sky, 2012
Director: Timo Vuorensola
Cast: Julia Dietze, Udo Kier, Peta Sergeant

Stage: Kino Šiška, the premiere. With Laibach concert following :)

Iron sky in short: The Nazis set up a secret base on the moon in 1945 where they hide out and plan to return to power in 2018.

: Hm. Am not aware of anything in this movie. I just want fun.

Reality: Well, for once, my expectations have been fulfilled. It is fun, pure fun and black irony, deriving from the facts of the world today. Even though the projection of the year is 2018.
The idea of bringing nacis into the present world is brilliant. From all the people they could have met in the Moon script, they find a black man. From all the places, they could have landed on the Earth, obviously it is NY, and in this segment, it's the growing spot /field of weed. The movie is filled with similar irony and present humour. Bringing out the elections with the great fuss, where people just embrace what seems to be the next bluechip of the marketing or something that seems to be dragging out the crowds from the depression.. well the nazis represent quite a challenge to present people. Not only that they aren't really taken seriously, it is the black guy that gives them a kick in the ass.
The amazing script gives more life to the piece than I supposed. The characters are taken from the best imagination ever. I haven't enjoyed a piece quite like this in a while. I believe it is a parody to all existing political systems as well as our processes, a black humoured side of what we find real or reality. The black side of humanity we can all laugh from, if we are intelligent enough. The parliament of all nations, driving out the best weapons that all have been developing under cover, is simply brilliant. It turns out that US wants to stay on the top, but has a hard time doing so, because all of the non believers had their own agenda. The battle runs out in favour of humanity and nazis go back to be straight, smart peasants, learning about how dreadful nazis have been in WW2 and what could they have done to improve.
I believe the story is one of more original ones I have ever seen. Again, truly enjoyed it. The scenery, the music is brilliant. The delivery excellent. The costumes.. I would have given an oscar for this. Really worth seeing.

My personal rating: 9,0 (a superb ++to this. A must see to every person)
