i didn't really know what to expect of this film so went to watch it quite blank, the cinema was packed with a mixed crowd which was promising.
i was drawn to the characters and their different personalities immediately.they were very believable and you almost felt as if you were there.
the film was very natural and the shots were nice and tidy, as a lot of foreign or arty films end up being too 'diffeent', this was easy to watch. as the plot became more complex the viewing was compelling and the director created suspense very well and built it up slowly.
the actresses and actors were really great, adding to the story's realism. as we the audience started to try and piece the mysteries of the story you just had to keep watching. i recommend it, the location was really pretty too.
i was happy to know there was a ending as a lot of foreign films end with no ending!!!! but this was satisfying however i would add that it became a little too long towards the end and some may have wanted a different ending to that chosen.
all together an excellent film to watch.
