This is one of the movies that seem promising at the start, stay so until the end but don't go anywhere. The plot is poor, with no clear storyline, apart from a girl who doesn't talk much, finds a dead body in her bathroom and starts getting paranoid with her husband. "Guernsey" is characterized by many (too) long, silent shots, which do give a pretty good atmosphere, but clearly lack some action. Everything Anna (the main character) does, has unclear reasons, and she therefore soon becomes a bit annoying ("Talk, girl, talk!"). All the intrigues and relationships between the main characters remain superficial, where some surprising turn in the plot could (and should) have mattered a lot. In summary, the movie is worth watching when you like a grisly ambiance created by silent scenes, but you'll need a real lot of patience if you're waiting for some action, or any at all.
