A masterpiece of dark family drama
4 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I rate a movie according to what it is trying to be, not what genre or theme I personally enjoy. This trilogy is not for mainstream audiences. It is extreme drama that borders on horror, but without feeling exploitative. Extreme, but true to itself. This film takes you on an "anything but subtle!" no holds barred emotional journey through some tragic families. I was amazed that looking through the credits here on IMDb the actor/actresses had so little previous credits. An incredible level of polish, in an indie film. The last piece "prologue" nicely rounds out the other two with a feeling not of redemption, but of hope for positive human traits, love and caring, to exist even after violent life changing tragedy. I am extremely impressed.
