Its a great movie. So exciting! Usually cruel in telling the truth. It gets you in, ties your arms and legs, and at the end, hits you real hard. There is good quality black humor served as rare cooked conversations. Important little details and the declaration of looserness inside the movie is amazing. But of course the casting has a lot to do with it. The general flow of the events and conversations are about life, its dynamics, relationships and social tendencies. But what the movie is really all about, you find it out at the end.
Definitely worth watching. But not with kids around; not when you are in a negative mood neither. :)
