If you don't like, it can only mean that you don't understand it.
If you are looking for a senseless US garbage, you should probably skip this film. But if you want to see a true story, with actual people in it, don't miss this one. If you don't like, most probably you didn't understand it, so don't blame the filmmakers, but your stupidity. The story is so "believeable" that it actually hurts to see the two young persons that destroy their lives. The end of the movie is the only way out of the whole mess that life actually is. If the you find the movie too aggressive - hey, that's how things are in real life and real life is not the sugar tasted Hollywood s**t! Sorry, if your intelligence is too low to understand and appreciate this kind of story, but as I already said - that's real life! Like it or not, this s**t really happens in real life. Everything's pink and perfect only in the Hollywood productions, but most of them are not real cinema nor art.
