I won't delve into plot details -- you can get a summary of the plot within seconds of Googling -- but get right down to business: this movie is a pain to sit through. I wanted to turn it off after 30 minutes, but I stuck with it (consequently, I'm a bit mad now about having wasted my time).
Well, what's wrong with it, you ask me? It's the direction. The interactions between the characters feel so unnatural and stiff -- like in a real Lithuanian movie! I can't imagine why would anyone would want the dialogue to be so prolonged, awkward, and boring, delivered without any flair or wit. The actors just mumble awkwardly throughout the whole movie. Who talks like that? Answer: people in Lithuanian movies.
