A compelling & disturbing drama - It should be compulsory viewing
I found this film very disturbing. I had to watch it until the end.
The acting was such that I had to remind myself that it was acting sometimes. I feel that some actors are very brave to take on certain parts.
I think that in some darker places in the world (e.g. USA), elements of the population would confuse the actor with the part and abuse him. Congratulations to all involved for an excellent performance. The tension is never "Watch out behind you" but "Please, please, not that".
If this film causes just one adult to reflect on how his actions may damage a child then it is very worthwhile.
