A very captivating movie
20 February 2009 | by (Malta) – See all my reviews

I am very disappointed that there where a lot of very low ratings for this movie by a good number of people.

Personally I found that the movie was very captivating, and it made me want to understand better what was exactly happening all along.

The costumes where marvelous, and the twist at the end (although I expected something similar, because it almost always happens in these kind of movies) was very good.

It is a very good drama, however only for people that know how to appreciate it. People who like a lot of action, and not understanding will not appreciate it as much.
