Loved it!
19 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie not for everyone. I am giving it 10 stars so it will not be overlooked. Superb acting. I saw this engrossing examination of the other side of human existence; a side that as portrayed in this movie would probably be unfamiliar, unappealing and unflattering to all concerned.Obviously a film that features only three central characters will rise or fall based upon the success of those three characters as actors; whether or not they can draw the audience into their lives and whether they can create enough drama in their interaction to sustain believability over the course of the script. In my opinion they succeeded on both accounts extremely well. One of the things I really liked about this movie was that it didn't need to have every moment filled with dialog like a lot of movies.There are some great scenes with little or no dialog where the interaction between the characters and their environment created enough mood on their own. If you loved "Lost in Translation" you will love this one. This movie in the same category as "Safety Not guaranteed","Melancholia", "The vicious kind".
