Watchable as a background movie
19 October 2017 | by fairlesssamSee all my reviews

I watch movies while I do my artwork, so they run really in the background as I'm painting. If you were sat actually watching this film as your only entertainment then I don't think you will enjoy it too much.

The DVD I have of the film is very poor quality but I found the actors and story surprisingly engaging. I loved the nosy old lady who was the landlady.

Sarah and Michael move to a new home and want to start a family, sadly Sarah is deemed infertile and seems to begin to lose her grip on reality as the distress overcomes her. The film has many flashback of Sarah's childhood which seem to relate somewhat to how she is behaving now but it's all very cryptic. Sarah strikes up a rather inappropriate friendship with a strange little girl called Melissa and the film seems to imply that this child isn't a real child, that she is a figment of Sarah's imagination and that she's imagined her so strongly that she has actually become a real child.

The film goes down the road of possible mysterious happenings, wishing things to be real actually does make them real, continuing flashbacks of Sarah's childhood, a psychiatrist and then the possibility it's Michael that's imagining things! It all becomes a little muddled and in the end you don't really know what's going on.

I did enjoy this movie, not sure why.
