Original plot, cleverly exploited to arrive at a complete story without open ends
Saw this at the Noordelijk film festival 2014 in Leeuwarden (The Netherlands). The original plot is cleverly exploited and all possible sub-plots are perfectly added to arrive at a complete story with no open ends. Some things seem statistically impossible, but we can overlook that given the overall quality of the product. All 115 minutes were well spent (that it took almost 2 hours was something I realized only in hindsight, but had not really noticed it underway, an achievement in itself). It is no use in saying more about the story than the synopsis on IMDb already tells, short of telling too much and spoiling the many surprises. For the audience award this film ranked 25th (out of 64) with average score 7.9.
