I give this film 1 star. The reason is that it is so depressing and grim. I don't understand how anyone could give this film a high mark unless it is for technical reasons, and that alone does not make a film worth watching.
Some films I would not recommend to anyone, but this film I actively recommend to be avoided.
What else can I say? I don't understand how it gets the good reviews here. I really think there should be some sort of warning for films like this.
"Likely to make you feel completely miserable."
So be warned. If you ignore this warning and do watch it, please leave an honest review to back me up.
