It's achilles heel is that this movie is so unknown that I first encountered this film was by mistake, while i was just searching new 2013 trailers. this movie is definitely overcomes most of the movies from the years 2012\2013!
This film is one of the most interesting films i've ever seen.
The plot is really unexpected but if you pay enough attention for details you'll realize how the entire plot and all characters are fitted together despite that the scenes are pretty much scattered and not realistic. but it's how the people's imagination works, especially if a person has a Dementia.
I'll definitely highly recommend my friend to watch it!
I salute for the makes of the movie and who came up with the story.
