disappointingly boring
28 September 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

As some other reviewers on this site spoke positive about this movie my expectations were positive. I have to confess I found the movie utterly disappointing and terribly boring from the beginning to the end. The male characters were not credible to me, the psychology of the characters was not developed (you never got to know these people), the Russian males were portrayed in an embarrassingly cliché fashion (drunk, silly headgear). The whole film felt very amateur. Although attractive Syvia Hoeks did brighten it up a bit for me, she did not get much chance to show her acting talent (watch her in De Ontmoeting!). I cannot believe that this movie was sent in for a best foreign film award. It won my personal price for worse film I watched ever!
