love it - love it - love it
19 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

what a movie - enjoyed every minute of it

Weird little beautiful story - where everything worked (was hooked from the first minute). Kind of a new experience - a slow paced movie where I didn't want to miss any minute.

Why it deserves 10 stars

The script: it's brilliant - no clue what happens next and believable when it happens. The actors: OK I only read the subtitles but the acting looked really good - and the casting was spot on The look: Weird and nice like the film.

It's really amazing how many good films are now from Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden and Norway.
