Dark and suspenseful
6 March 2013 | by (Porto, Portugal) – See all my reviews

It's a dark suspense thriller about two women which were best friends when they were kids and now they meet again, passed all these years. As child they used to spend some holidays in a small isolated island near the mainland, and now they meet again they decide to spend some days there one more time, to remember the old days…Everything goes fine until one of them see a photo where there're both of them and one third little girl she didn't remember… Maria!

It's atmospheric, dark, in a mood of a ghost story, and it has suspense until the end, where there's a nice twist in the plot. The setting and the soundtrack are quite good too in order to create a dark and atmospheric story. I appreciated it mostly because of the ambiance created. I score it 8/10.
