To me, this is one of those "love it or hate it" movies.
I started watching this movie because I adore Matthew Macfadyen. I note that some reviewers said they also watched it because they liked one of the main actors.
However, even this adoration couldn't carry me through the whole movie. The plots and sub-plots were too bizarre and after 45 minutes, I stopped watching. Then I tried to continue for another 15 minutes but eventually abandoned it altogether. No, I don't want to know what happened to her in the end.
I gave this movie 2 stars, one each for Matthew Macfadyen and the director for trying.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go watch an episode of Spooks, or maybe Homeland.
