Very unhappy with the irritating script of the film.
27 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Unfortunately, I will strongly disagree with the current review of this film.

I am disappointed from this movie's script where dialectic-ism is used in a very flat, inappropriate and completely irritating way. The characters are underdeveloped, insufficient and much more work and complexity is needed to ignite someone's feelings. Actors play is on a very low level and inappropriately selected for their images. Some of the good features of the movie are the selected music and camera work. Otherwise, I had a pretty bad time trying to stay focused and watch the film.
