I watched this wanting a "normal" scary movie for a few jumps here and there, what i got was a lot better!
I put this movie in the same category as The Exocism of Emily Rose. They're horror movies that actually have a good storyline , that make put all that you have just seen into complete and coherent thoughts instead of just throwing all the information right in your face like most do.
The movie has a slow pace and an amazing eerie vibe making you feel uneasy throughout the whole thing, completed with the help of Vanessa Redgrave's voice-over done with perfection. It was packed with small hints everywhere leaving you collecting crumbs until you had more and more information. The cinematography and camera work was spot on but I didn't quite like the set design, i think it could have been done with more taste and better positioning.
Overall i think it was a great watch and would surely recommend it, shame it has such a low rating on IMDb.
