Could be much better
14 July 2012 | by (Lisboa, Portugal) – See all my reviews

Though I had some doubts about it, I decided to take a look at this one since the french have been so creative, in a good sense, lately. Unfornately I was wrong. The plot starts out perfectly and takes us deeply into the main character Suzanne, played by Laetitia Casta, but that is all. Such a nice scenario and environment should have been better exploited. Everything goes around Suzanne and her personal issues e specially how these issues get into her inside of the house. When the little girls disappeared and Suzanne discovered this mysterious basement involved in a supernatural environment I was expecting the real emotion but that also failed. A good plot could have saved this perfect scenario and great actress, who plays perfectly her character.
