Okay if you can use fast-forward function and/or like Ethan Hawke...
15 April 2013 | by BeneCumbSee all my reviews

Otherwise, it is too complex and confusing, full of non-deliberated characters and events providing no value to the course of action, e.g. Tom's (Hawke) relationship with Margit (rather trivial performance by Kristin Scott Thomas) and his odd job organized by his landlord Sezer (also rather uninviting Samir Guesmi). The ending is odd as well and when the credits appear, you will realize that you have just seen an over-sophisticated and protracted piece of work where you finally wanted to get some answers, but got more and new questions instead. Even based of insanity and mysterious events, there are far better movies out there.

Avoid, if you do not have to :)
