Amazing Insight into Schizophrenia
8 May 2013 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

It's no surprise that this film won awards for best feature film at various prestigious film festivals around the world, nor that the lead actor and actress were recognized at these film festivals for their portrayal of a man suffering from Schizophrenia and his partner. These two, as well as the supporting cast give outstanding performances. The emotion with which they tell the story captures the viewer with it's rawness.

The story itself is chilling and really brings the viewer face to face with a reality of which many people are unaware. The honest way in which Schizophrenia is portrayed may make some feel slightly uncomfortable but it is this honesty that gives the film its power.

The cinematography is stunning and the score haunting. This is a film that you can't easily forget. I found myself mulling over the characters and themes for days after watching it.
