The movie does start off as a bona-fide horror film. If you as me, do not know the specifics/plot of the movie, you might be excused to think this is where this movie is heading. But while the horror stigma does not really fit (a "I know what you did last summer" vibe hanging around it), the movie itself might terrify you. The plot it tells and the way the characters act that is.
While the beginning is like a show off, the rest is more subtle than that and wants you to listen and watch. There is a time-line/storyline mix that might confuse some people, but it makes the overall story more intriguing. To some western audience members the relationships and the way people "act" may feel alien, but there is another sense behind it all and a different code to live by here. More a drama, the thrilling elements of the movie (and some incidents) might be too much for some
