Good and intelligent.

Well paced and built, though it is to be expected it won't go down in the history of movie-making as a masterpiece, but it is in general more than worthwhile watching. A rather droll mother-son relationship, well presented and above all, acted by mother and child. The husband character is rather stereotyped, but in a way unless he were some kind of mind reader he could not have an idea of what actually happened until events led him to it, and the neighbors, parents of the missing child could have been more developed by the script writers and the director. I wouldn't expect the mother-son clothing changing scene in a movie made this, generally more prudish, side of the Atlantic but it only goes to show how healthier mainstream continental European attitude towards nudity is.
