Quite realistic
20 February 2002 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Most movies have inconsistencies and/or are unrealistic in some ways but this movie is unusually as realistic as any fictional movie is. I do not know how likely such a thing is to happen but it could. The main reason not to like this movie is that there is not enough happiness and such, but that's life.

Throughout most of the movie there are enough surprises to make what will happen next quite a mystery.
