This was somewhat of a surprise. I read the synopsis, so I had an idea, but I didn't expect any quality whatsoever. That was a huge element of the surprise; the performance and story quality. The execution was a bit choppy, and the racial theme was a bit off putting, but all in all, this was very well done.
A grad student discovers his distant, overly-white girlfriend has a few secrets. Secrets her mother will do anything to destroy.
This features some decent performances, a relatively unique story line, and a half-decent score. The dubbing is horrid, but I suppose it's difficult to sync French with English. This is a drama rather than an actioner, and is more suspense with horror elements than outright horror, so remember that if you decide to give this one a viewing.
All in all? This was very well done, considering lack of budget, and carries an innovative story I found entertaining. Perhaps you will, too.
It rates a 6.7/10 from...
