The whole atmosphere and surroundings are ideal for a drama movie, and even a bit closed on this dark side. Too much talks and not enough free silent moments for the feelings to sustain. Well worked out; even a bit tricky, disconcerting and I personally think that it's a weakness to fix the scenario with highly lucky events, but others might like. It's definitely worth watching for the drama fans. It seems to have some inspiration from the big Faith Akin's "Auf der anderen Seite". It brings a lot by its characters simplicity and realism, yet lacks an artistic touch and global homogeneity or links that would take it farther from documentary and short film spirit.
