This is a thoughtful, surprising and challenging film which, while ultimately remaining true to its thriller genre, contains strong elements of documentary, relationship drama and humour. The strongest moments come not from any one individual scene so much as the way the changing moods of the scenes relate to one another - gentle relationship-based comedy has particular poignancy when you're still reeling from shocking images of rape/murder. This is what the film is really all about - not just the tragedy of one particular crime, but the enormous gulf which exists between the ruined lives a crime leaves in its wake, and the fragility of 'normal' life. It's beautifully acted and the direction is controlled and unobtrusive.
