Not in any kind of a hurry
27 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The plot for this movie is not exactly new but even with me saying that it will keep you guessing for a bit.

The production is great, the acting top notch, characters, direction all good.

The most notable quality of this movie though is the pace, it is very slow and considered. The characters are examined in massive detail but you never really get to know them. This is how the plot is disguised so well.

If you have patience and you don't mind a film that takes its time then this is definitely for you. For me it was a little slow and void of substance.
