Not one to be watched for pleasure.
- 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance review by JD
Of the almost random scenes, some of which finish in mid-sentence, some feature a man practising table-tennis, most are pretty dull. Some of the clips of news presentations are pretty grim (most notably the rotting corpses in the Yugoslavian ethnic cleansing era). The excerpts are of the lives of several characters most of whom are either dull or unpleasant. These people are all in one place at one time at the end of the film. As a narrative or story or piece of entertainment it is poor. As an alternative way of directing a film it is outstanding. If you want an arty experience get this one. You will remember it for a while.
