Made me think and feel - simply extraordinary
3 December 2011 | by (Basel, Switzerland) – See all my reviews

Maybe I can count myself lucky, because I decided to watch this movie because of it's original title: "Little Fish, Strange Pond". I quite often feel like a little fish in a strange pond - a very strange pond. While watching this movie I realized, there probably are quite some people, to whom that pond seem even more strange, which made me laugh - at first. Soon enough one get a feeling. You couldn't predict anything, but you feel this is going from bad to worse and I suddenly was not sure whether I laughed because it was funny or my laughter was plainly hysterical. I saw this movie last week and I was ever since having some thoughts I didn't ever before. I must admit others who have seen this movie might not have been stirred up like me and again others might not have liked being stirred up. I think that's the reason this movie gets a lot of low ratings and yet some excellent ones.
