solid acting, interesting story, good soundtrack
I enjoyed watching this. First of all, it is very good in showing family problems, so much to the saddening effect. But the actors do a solid job, and through the film there are numerous moments that lighten up the general mood and I think the atmosphere is quite balanced. The ending comes off well.
I especially like the soundtrack. The music fits perfectly, also when it comes to details. For example, there is a scene with Mozart's Little Night Music (Eine Kleine Nachtmusik). This music, composed back in the 18th century, supports the acting in an impressive way. Too bad that the soundtrack loses its quality towards the end. Another con is the structure of the plot, there are some flashbacks that seem to be forced to add more tension. It does, but it is a tick too artificial.
Maybe the average rating of this film is correct, maybe I don't see the reasons for which many rated the movie so poorly. But I liked it a lot and I think you will too. Give it a try, don't hesitate!
