Very solid drama!
29 January 2014 | by (Sarajevo B&H) – See all my reviews

First about acting. Acting is outstanding in this film! Alfred Molina is one fantastic actor. It is not that I am underestimating other actors, but I like him, I always did. Other actors are outstanding too, no wonder this film picked up few awards.

I do not have to mention cinematography, it is outstanding too. It also picked up few awards, it deserved it!

As far as the plot goes I was not too impressed, but it is a story of life, and as it told, it makes perfect sense. Two women bonding together, to overcome issues from the past. Hmm. Two mentally ill women bonding together. And the water. What the hell is the water all about? So plot is not as outstanding as acting and cinematography.

I would declare this film is for the women.
