Very average

Was a surreal presentation this one. But didn't seem very original. You knew what was happening all the time I thought. The story itself didn't have much, seemed more like a thought, than a story..maybe should have been a bit longer. But guess the concept itself wasn't unique anyway. The direction was just OK, nothing to wrote home about. The actors did a fair one except Tennant had a major role. The cinematography was pretty good. The interior design with all the classic furniture and iconic home gadgets were on full display here. Overall expected more, hopefully the other stories in the series are better. Hope the concentration is on story rather that the performances or picturisation.
