Beautiful by all means
22 July 2006 | by johray-plusSee all my reviews

Right from the start this movie settles its direction straight: A bleak and almost unbearable ambiance surrounds Rob and Chris. They both got nothing to lose and so this unequal pair is ready to be on the run. Every scene is beautifully shot and the actors are really going through the motions. The greatest thing about this movie are teaches of the heart. The "bad" killer is a soft and caring guy whose life as a poor sailor dragged him into this mess.

Think about which society you're living in and why people sometimes do what they have to do...

Outstanding movie by all means!
