Boring.
1 September 2008 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this film has got such high marks from other reviewers.

This is similar to the worst low budget French films, it is so desperate to the meaningful and obtuse that it simply bores you.

The characters are believable and well acted but that is the only positive.

The film moves very slowly from non-event to non-event with the few real events being overwhelmed by the plodding pace.

The characters aren't interesting or likable, you don't care what happens to them and never and the dialogue is dull.

Watching this was an enormous waste of time.
