First of all this movie is something very special and It is not for everybody.If you are searching for action,horror or something with a complete story that makes complete sense you will be disappointed. This movie is a perfect example of an art piece. It is an interesting and emotional,slow paced dark story that is very open for personal interpretation.There are a lots of loose ends in the story but here lies the beauty of it.Not everything has to be explained.Like in real life not everything is known to us.We don't really know where we are,why are we here and where we are going.Just like this woman doesn't know the destination of the train.And the train represents the life itself.It is a big,long journey,sometimes very dark and in the end all that matters is love.In this case love towards her son and husband. Don't get me wrong,this is not a classic love story.This is something very deep and real for all of us.Life can be harsh and unforgiving and there are some decisions we do not want to make,but we have to. If you are one of those people that search for deeper meanings in movies and art you will be very pleased.
If I have to name only one movie that portraits a real nightmare it would be this one.A lot of the images can be disturbing,but at the same time they are not so disgusting.The viewer really feels like in a dream,a nightmare.Anything is possible and acceptable.In dreams we accept the weirdest things as completely normal.Even in life we do the same.We don't seek explanations,we just accept them as the facts of life(like death) and we continue our journey searching for something.
I liked the film's style very much.The story is told in animations and images.Like a comic book coming alive.Really special and original.Everything was coordinated perfectly:the music,sounds,animations etc. This movie is so simple and yet so complex that I am sure the books could be written about it.
I also liked how the whole story is told by only one person. It is subjective and represents a story of a personal journey through the dark waters of life.It shows that the love is the only thing we can grab on to,the only thing that gives us purpose in spite of life being a nightmare sometimes.
I think now you can make a decision if you want to watch this film or not.For some it will be a complete waste of time and for some it will be a true piece of art.
