This movie is odd and strange. I usually like that, but instead of being interesting and deep it is just too pretentious. It is also muddy and totally discombobulated. It feels like a film school project that would have deserved an F. I didn't watch it all the way to the end, I already felt so irritated about that time I lost watching it...The characters are uninteresting, the dialog is...missing, the story is so loosely put together that it is just plain awful. I don't mind having some room for questions and interpretations, most good movies have that, but this movie is far beyond that. Save yourself the time and skip it!
