Easily missed unless you wish to indulge in some unnecessary sadness
17 April 2008 | by vito169See all my reviews

Frankly, this flick is not up to scratch. It consists of two equal length parts: a childhood and and adulthood of a certain man who got beaten from time to time in his tender years. Why the scriptwriter is credited with plural "stories?" Does this flick consist of two stories which has little in common? The first part is boring and repetitious. Anyone can figure out what is happening in less than fifteen minutes, and then both scriptwriter and director indulge into photocopying their boring visions. The flick has an inadmissible number of loose ends, which serve no purpose, and is out of depth. What is its message actually? On the other hand, Zebrowski and others are doing an excellent job. So, my criticism applies to a scriptwriter, director and editor, and possibly producer, since it all looks cheap at times.
