Critic Reviews for Der Bunker

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Der Bunker offers some actual laughs as well as quirk, and the guileless way it satirizes corporal punishment, home schooling, and child abuse invites further discussion.

Top Critic

An absurd, disturbing film that is simultaneously both funny and tragic, Der Bunker is that rarest of treasures: a one-of-a-kind.

Though the story's anything but realistic, this doesn't mean that it has nothing to say; Chryssos's well-paced screenplay suggests something, for example, about the dangers of burdening a child with unrealistic expectations...

A unique piece of work, Der Bunker is twisted yet engaging, abstract and parabolic, funny yet flippant.

Pit Bukowski, whom I want to meet solely on the basis of his name, is absolutely sublime as the student.

[A] cinematic soulmate to Eraserhead.
