The beginning of this movie was quite interesting and made me expect something more, but I was a bit disappointed.
First of all, I have nothing to complain about the actors, they did very well. Also the visual image was nice, I still very much like the pictures of tea leaves in a glass spinning around, it was beautiful. Although I sometimes didn't like the editing, that wasn't the weak spot either. It was the plot. The story that was interesting in the beginning turned out to be quite one dimensional and predictable. It leaves a bit empty feeling after watching this.
This isn't a bad movie, however it's not enough to be original or memorable. And that's what a good movie is about.
