A disjointed story of sad, angry, insulting miserable humans, 22 February 2013
Author: OJT from Norway

Beware, don't watch this if you're depressed or wanting some entertainment! We're introduced to an interesting gallery in the start of the movie, and the actors are doing their job. Great cast, but that's about all. It's sort of annoying that we don't clay understand if the main event in the film, the loss of a teenager, already has happened or not. Carrie Anne Moss, which is great as always, finally makes us think it's happened.

And that sums up my main problem with this movie. I think you really need to get the whole story to get to feel the tragedy. When we finally understand, after 13 minutes, it's almost too late. How is a loss that long time ago able to be so profound on so many? The mother is feeling she didn't know her lost son that well, And then the other son still living is as unloved as can be!!!

It's also told in a for me a bit too depressive way. There's nothing positive to too see for the first half an hour. Tragic human lives, and I both Moss and Kevin Zegers difficult to like. And the people keep insulting each other on a too large scale for me to believe in. Even the persons on you think you'll like ends up beeping unlikeable. And if that's not enough, people here which don't like each other ends up having sex. Is it the times? That also makes it more difficult to identify with the main characters.

And then when you expect the film to take off, nothing simply happens. It feels like a kind of a disjointed story. The actors are not to blame, and not so much the instruction either, I think. They all do a good job. The manuscript is probably the main problem.

Sorry to see such a good cast go to waste in a film like this. The persons are not only insulting each other, the filmmakers are insulting us viewers. Go rather see the great film "The dead girl" by Karen Moncrieff, which is also based on a similar idea, but much more gripping told and well done.
