like a flower from the wound
15 November 2012 | by (Vanuatu) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect this movie to be actually interesting. it surprised me. It produced a series of behaviors that are usually promoted by the suburban lifestyle. the hysteric mother, the passive father, the children, wounded by the scars of their parents and the rest of the adults who curb with the appearance of normalcy. this reminded me of a lot of other crazy films. in a flash I thought about - we need to talk about Kevin- and -teeth-. it created a repulsive yet addicting chemistry by adding the overly styled mother and the nude- faced and imperfect daughter in the mix. delusions, sociopathy or simply cursed a non-compos mentis state, the daughter dreams climactic deaths drenched in blood and surgical cuts. It totally caught my attention and it managed to evoke the madness that stalks American families.
