Intense dramatic feature with bits of Horror.
11 February 2007 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

Great visuals, stunning cinematography, and art direction but lacks of an interesting plot that never gets fully explained.

I haven't read the novel but I think the movie was interesting enough. The psychological situations were perfectly mix with the sadness beyond the grave. Losing a child is always a matter of traumas and this movie perfectly displays it with some chilling scenes.

The cryings were scary enough to add a special vibe to the movie but sadly, it wasn't never clear if the movie was intended to take a dramatic or horror direction.

Still, this is a decent effort that hasn't get much recognition. I will take the other IMDb reviewer suggestion and read the book.

Still, I recommend this movie if you catch it on t.v.
