First things first: the movie moves even slower than a snail! You have to bear with it to really get it. But then again you might not be willing to spend the time with an urban drama, where nothing much seems to happen. There is a reason the (international) title is "Household X". But while it seems like nothing, the small things are those that matter and define what will happen next.
Great acting, great script and a very strange shooting style (though you might expect the latter) are all present here. Depending on your view on what I wrote you will "enjoy" the movie as much as I did or you will loathe it for its stillness.
