This film just opened a film festival in Lund, Sweden, weeks before the official release. Although the film didn't make a massive impression on me, I definitely found it worthwhile.
It is a film that makes you think. The pace is slow, scary at times and gradually building a mood of mystery. Although confusing in the beginning, there is an explanation to it, like it or like it not. Satisfying to some, adding to the feeling of mystery to others.
It would be interesting to see the original short film the plot is based upon, in particular to see how the message could be delivered in a more condensed manner.
James and Frank were convincing, although Cameron doesn't quite deliver, perhaps not her genre.
