1st watched 9/1/2013 7 out of 10(Dir-Aleksander Nordaas): Extremely well paced fantasy/horror/drama film about a couple of clean-up guys from murder scenes who discover a girl alive in a basement dwelling who may be something other than just a girl. This movie does a great job of revealing bits and pieces of the story as it goes along until you finally understand everything at the very end. The main character(found in the basement), Thale, is one of a few of her kind but she was kept away from the others by a slightly-abusive but mostly fatherly scientist in hopes of keeping her away from the scarier characteristics(like eating people) of the rest of the Tailed-group. This movie mixes many different genre's but keeps the main focus on the story when it could have become overly filled with special effects, gore or sex appeal(which would have happened if it was American made). A sequel is supposedly coming in the English language with the same director and hopefully it isn't butchered by American influences. The movie focuses primarily of where Thale came from, how she became who she is, and where she is going in the end. A clichéd side story about government cover-up is the only downside to the movie, but at least this is kept to a minimum. This is very similar to Species but with some different twists to the story making it unique enough to be seen. Please watch this you will definitely be engrossed for 76 minutes. This is another foreign film that deserves more attention by Americans.
