I saw this film at the Ghent (Belgium) film festival 2013. In spite of all the overly positive professional reviews I've read on IMDb, without seeing any reservation or critical side remark, I for myself did not discover anything useful or interesting in this movie. There are no user reviews yet on IMDb, so we cannot decide whether all pro reviewers are wrong, or at least biased by knowing who the director is. I have problems to think of any more lines to add here, in order to have enough words to make this review acceptable for IMDb. And before I forget: it ranked 29th place for the audience award, with score 4.07 out of 5. So apparently I'm alone in my negativism, but so be it.
