You don't often see gems like this. I saw it at the Raindance Film Festival. Having no idea what it was about, I just needed to fill a gap between two films that I did want to see. I was so gripped that I missed the following film. Dare I say this film is faultless? Dark, moody and understated. Acting brilliant, lighting superb etc etc. There are some unusual, non standard plot twists that I like to have in a film. This is not the usual Hollywood script and treatment and so much the better for that. The suspense is held wonderfully well and there is no padding, and no overlong reaction shots dragging on the narrative. And I almost forgot the Music/Sound effect work, I have never, ever heard that done so well, Oscar? On an independent? Not a hope. Beautifully merged to jar your senses, this is great.
