Very nice!
1 December 2010 | by sarrabasySee all my reviews

I had the chance to discover this movie last week!

It was very well shot, very moody... I loved the camera movement... the feeling, the lightning... Creepy but not scary! It's a story full of mystery and surprises... Not a saw or Hostel movie (that i like) but it's more "classic" in the good way... Old fashioned fantastic... (like the Sixth Sense for example)

It's french but it reminds me the new wave of "Fantastic movies" from spain.

Nice story, good directing and a good casting!

It's a "you can't miss it" movie!

S.
