Decent film somewhat ruined by it's snale's pace and seemingly random ending.
Very good acting all around and superb directing from writer/director Matthew Saville who manages to keeps the viewer in suspense despite the film's slow progression and meandering screenplay.

Not really sure what to make of this film, It surely won't get a second viewing any time soon but I wouldn't discourage anyone from seeing it either.
