I think this is a fantastic, human, film
10 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The characters and the depth of the way they intermingle in this wonderful film just blew me away. The intensity of the emotion and the overall diversity of the personalities makes for an incredible mix. The actors all play their parts so honestly, it feels like more of a situation, though sometimes uncomfortable, that you find yourself in.

The situation, though I won't be spoiling it for you, seems fairly normal in a film context, but then, as it unfolds, we develop our own emotions and we begin to choose sides with the various characters. In a way, the writing, which is incredible, gets the viewer into the film as if we are right there with the characters.

If you like REAL cinema, with REAL human relations, this is a great film for you!
