When he finally meets Monica, he realizes that there are people out there whose lives are even more desperate than his.

The criminality of a young social misfit grows
30 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Supermarkt" (1974) is a neo-noir that's darker in story and in look than the norm of neo-noirs in the 70s period. The production design is relentlessly dreary, dark and downbeat. The characters mostly share this grubby look too, which is accentuated by the colors and lighting used. The story is uncompromisingly bleak. No one is really sympathetic. The central character ("protagonist"?) is unlikeable. His social skills are minimal. His ethics are nonexistent. His dysfunction grows as the film progresses, with an occasional ray of light here and there. The story has a direction for this character, and it's downward.

The script shows a young man in rebellion against many of the major things that society considers to be normal. With the help of a journalist, he evades juvenile detention and gets a job. Things do not work out, because his resentment and exaggerated sense of what's fair in his eyes get him into serious trouble. He really seems too dense to understand the imperfections of this world. That's how the script leaves him, because it really fails to make us understand this character. However, the story's fatalistic progression makes up for this.

The acting in this film is generally not good, a criticism I usually do not make.

Despite the film's weaknesses, it makes an impact. It stands out from others of the time and seems actually ahead of its time.
