Very long
11 September 2005 | by (Montreal, Quebec) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie as part of a test group.

I found the story to be very interesting but, personally, I do not enjoy movies where you see the actors thinking out loud while you do not see any action at all.

In this movie there are several instances where this happens and I find this annoying.

However the actors are very good and the scenery is also quite beautiful.

In the movie "Birth" with Nicole Kidman there is the same kind of thinking out loud that occurs and it is very annoying.

This film will appeal to a certain kind of audience.
