This was a very strange movie
16 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was an amalgamation of different events in third point of view of the different protagonists. However, the strange part was the what I'm guessing Samson and Delilah part, I kinda missed what they meant to show besides the "Adam and Eve" metaphor. The camera angles were very nice and plenty of effects to keep you in a mystery that makes you want to see the ending. However, the ending was very strange and it ended basically when you least expected. Needless to say, if you have some time on your hands and you don't know what to do give this unique movie a view, you might not regret it, maybe. If you don't like it then you can take it up with the director.
