Dull story with an empty script and weak story.
1 July 2012 | by (Kansis City, Missouri) – See all my reviews

Beautiful scenery and a fitting musical score accompany a weak and empty script. The film features good acting and attractive people. Set on the French Brittany coast, a mother;Luzia,her boyfriend Paul and her son Anton take a vacation to a cottage near the coast. Anton meets a very odd fellow David. This is where the story loses credibility. David is unpleasant and weird. He enjoys subjecting Anton to odd practical jokes, is violent and ominous. Anton nonetheless hangs around with David and his attractive sister Katja. The pace is incredibly slow. Dialogue is limited and weak. This is a empty script on a weak story dragged out for nearly two hours. Overall a dull story.
