Not bad enough to be so bad it's actually good.
4 October 2013 | by (Keuruu, Finland) – See all my reviews

I would really like to give this movie a good score, since it is about an important subject and it does have its strong moments. Problem is, those strong moments are drowned in a flood of horrible loose ends.

If the movie is about a mother who is trying to conceal the identity of her daughter's father from both the daughter and the father, the viewer should really not be left wondering first and foremost why we saw so very little of the father and were really not told about his motives. Instead, we are told and shown that the uncle of the child runs a pizzeria that has its window broken by someone for some reason, and there's also an attempted lesbian seduction in the movie that comes out of nowhere. The movie is full of irritating stuff like this. Something happens and the viewer has no idea why. None of it has anything to do with the main storyline, leads to nothing and is never explained. Dismal storytelling.

The other thing that really irked me was that the acting was beyond bad. I suppose that the mother was supposed to be going crazy. Too bad then that the leading actress failed to deliver any notion of anything like that happening. Sure, she does things that indicate to her being out of her mind, but it doesn't look or feel like she really is, and since we don't see much of the other characters than the mother, this really makes a bad movie even worse.

All in all, this movie was by far the worst movie I've ever paid to see. That really sums it all up.
