A must see film
18 March 2006 | by rsweeneeSee all my reviews

i stumbled upon this film on paddy's day in new york. clearly one of those moments when you walk into a theater not knowing what to expect. my wife and i were blown away by this film. we have never had a film have such an impact on me. my wife and i are still discussing it. the film opened our eyes. even though it is a fictional piece of work - it is so real. we were on the edge of our seats from the time we walked in. from the first scene till the end of the film - we could not take our eyes off. the acting is great, the story is mind blowing. the film is so real that the characters are still with us, actually haunting us. takes a lot of guts to make a real daring film. a must see.
