The Lenght Spoilt This Movie
10 March 2005 | by Mr_SensitiveSee all my reviews

I see this movie back to back both parts, and my overview is Part 2 is much better than Part 1. Overall the movie is very lengthy and is quite boring at time especially the part one.

Story: Part 1; show the life of the boy and his mother struggling to lives in the small town. The mother is having an affair and has another baby before decided to immigrate to Canada.

Part 2; both the boy and his sister grew up trying to deny they horrible past until the day come when the boy father try to attempt to kill his sister. This makes him come back home to his family and along the way he uncover the decades-old secrets that have torn his family apart.

Skip the part one causes it too boring, and I meant it. Go to part two where there are more excitement and when the story wheels start to turn. The casting is excellent and the acting is great. Actually everything here is great apart from the main thing and that is the Story.

Over-View: That is why this movie is certainly not for everyone, only people with loads of time and patient.

Rating: 6/10 (Grade: C)
