Quite Subtle About A Violent Family.
25 January 2013 | by TejasNairSee all my reviews

The whole situation is in a house where a two couples fool around and most of them aren't happy about what they did. And the children of one of the couples just dream, hallucinate about a feeble, imaginary story. Both narratives are simple and straight-forward.

Acting is okay, cast is good and the plot is slippery. It bores you midway because the purpose of creating a film about a family and their disconnections, fades away. But if you keep watching, a conclusion arrives and you start perceiving what went all the way to 90 minutes of slow screenplay.

For amateur cast, director and writers, I would dub it as a good venture. Try harder and keep it up!

I cannot say I enjoyed the movie but yeah it is 6/10. Don't bother for the DVD. It will be up in HBO sometime.

WATCH OUT FOR: nothing special to watch out for.
