The idea for the film was interesting and had a lot of potential, however, I thought it was lacking in many ways.
The acting was very good, especially for actors who were not professionally trained and the shots were very interesting. However, the plot didn't seem to build or develop and frankly, I got bored. The end really came out of nowhere and certainly did not bring resolution to the story. I left the theatre feeling dissatisfied. The concept of having no written music was interesting, however the sound effects used sometimes overpowered the speaking and I wasn't always able to understand the actors.
Personally, I wouldn't recommend it to a friend, however, it looks like I am alone in this, as it is getting very good reviews!
