The director Petri Kotwica is the screenwriter as well and his "sitting on two chairs simultaneously" was apparently not a good idea: the plot is not running smoothly, there are several questionable moments and the ending is plain. At first, there is too big emphasis on PC gaming and 1+1 connection, then it suddenly becomes a twisted college film... And what about the scenes where a mother and a girlfriend do not recognise their son and boyfriend, respectively! Even dark cellars and dark periods in a Nordic country would cause this :)
As for the cast, all the main roles are performed by Finns and many supporting ones by Estonians - so much for a Finnish-Estonian joint project... The performers are okay, but nothing special, and apparently the director's desire to stress dark psychology overshadows "naturalism" of appearances.
