Low Budget but Good movie
14 August 2007 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I've just seen it and i'm reading the posted comments. OK, this is a slow action movie, but this is normal. We're not dealing here with big car exploding every five minutes, no funny jokes, and the first 20 minutes are action-less. But it helps to install a climax, and if you're in the mood, it works.

Don't watch this movie if you're looking for distraction and fun. This movie will ask your brain a little more work than billboard movies actually do :)

And if you're open minded, watch it, the story is well built.

To anyone who has already seen it, i'm opening a thread on the movie board, where i'm explaining what i've understood.
