The cinematography is anything but good. The Depth of Field (DOF) is a very important tool in a film-makers arsenal. It is used to make the audiences' eye see what the director wants it to see by softly blurring the background information. However, the DOF used in this movie is just horrible. It is very shallow, thus blurring the background strongly. It might be excusable at times but this blur stays in effect even when the camera is following the actor from behind. These are the times when the audience checks out the surrounding. But hey cant do it. Why? 'Cuz Its blurred.
Also several times when the shot cuts to a different character speaking (in 2-way conversation) it starts with the other character totally blurred who then gradually comes into focus. This hurts the eye. Its like watching a kids very 1st effort at film-making. The cinematography is plain amateurish.
As for the story, it is slow, dull & boring. I was taken in by the premise and though I didn't expect greatness I did expect something worth my time. It wasn't there. Not good. Disappointed.
