Interesting blend
24 February 2007 | by companio2000See all my reviews

I saw it in a friends house in Russia but would love to see it on the big screen, it makes a strange but good mix of US indie movie and Scandinavian character study stage play. Those who have seen American plays and Scandinavia plays in NYC fringe know the difference. Brilliant dialogue, but it needs a 2nd viewing to get the whole idea and where the director is going. The action takes place in two or three rooms and a boat and it gets more and more interesting because you know someone is lying but you don't know why, thou you know it's most likely all in Laura's head. I wont give anything away in case you see it. The actors do their job OK but the local sheriff guy is a very very good actor. Low budget writing at its best.
