I saw it. I loved the cinematography and the acting was decent, too. Also, I didn't think it was unnecessarily slow. But the second half of the story, especially the ending ruins everything.
There is a twist in the story which is quite nice. Yes, there is only one twist, and it happens in the first half of the movie. The one at the end is not a twist at all, it's just an easy way for the writer to escape a situation while achieving an illusion of being clever. He is not. The story is not. It's just an insult to the intelligence to the audience. It's meant to hide the countless errors, inconsistence, plot holes and unnecessary scenes and subplots.
It is a shame that the horribly lousy screenplay ruins an otherwise beautifully shot and excellently played movie.
