Maybe its genius, but I didn't spot it!
14 May 2010 | by dom-donaldSee all my reviews

I am trying to think what I can say about this so-called movie, but no matter how hard I try I really can not come up with much. Perhaps I can better explain what it didn't have, rather than what it did. There were no developed characters, there was no plot, no beginning, middle or end. There were no interesting relationships, no questions asked of the audience, no explorations of ideas or emotions. There were no challenging subjects, nothing shocking or controversial. Nothing actually even happened, so there were no events for the characters to even discuss. Even the relationship between the two sisters wasn't explored in any way.

The movie just started and then a bit later it finished at some random point (the camera ran out of film?). I am still stunned 12 hours after watching it. If you don't believe my review to be accurate, I challenge you to watch it, for that is probably the only valid reason for doing so!
