Far away from being great!!!
11 January 2011 | by TrueBondSee all my reviews

This movie is far-far away from being great, as one reviewer had suggested. Firstly, great movies these days are so eagerly awaited that discovering them surely won't go unnoticed, especially by majority of film critics. It seems like this film passed through at least one international film festival. If it was even closer to "greatness" many would know, but this certainly is not the case. Why do I think it's less than mediocre picture? To start with, it is a clear demonstration of horrendous acting! Except for an actor who played psychiatrist in first part. He somewhat showed understanding of who he was playing, although he didn't quite deliver in third part of the movie. Third part...don't even ask! This is another reason for a thumb down, but I can't afford to waist any more time.
