I watched this mostly to not watch a Hindi movie. I've become obsessed with Hindi movies and I really thought I needed to go watch some other cinema too.
I ended up really liking it.
It started out poorly. I didn't really like the character and the point of it and plot seemed really thin. But I stuck with it and was rewarded with a very satisfying movie.
The movie is well acted. The plot twists - unseen, but then obvious.
It is an odd movie, but it works. It wasn't what I expected, but that's OK. I ended up enjoying it anyway. And it made a nice break from Bollywood and helped to remind me that other countries are also making movies worth watching.
