I pretty much knew after 20 minutes that this film was going nowhere, yet I toughed it out until the final credits. Very thin story with unremarkable characters, told at a painfully slow pace.
One of the reasons I chose this film was in thinking that the cinematography might be able to carry the day. Unfortunately, that too was underwhelming. There was simply nothing to keep me involved and I was close to dozing off a handful of times.
Can't fathom this film getting any kind of North American distribution deal. It just wouldn't have any broad appeal in these parts with its understated presentation and would be a tough sell even to the art house crowd.
Screened at the 2012 SF International Film Festival
