Dark movie that lefts some questions unanswered, which is okay
I watched this movie at the Internationales Fimfestival Heidelberg-Mannheim, Germany. I watched it together with some Lithuanian people. I liked this movie as it is very special.
Technically it is done very well. Not too many effects, nice cuts and setting. The plot is okay but the development of the characters is often not clear. Some decisions they make don't seem to make sense. Especially being a father I didn't understand the way, Ieva handles her son's problems. As the ending is in a way open I had to think a lot about it and the whole movie which is good in my opinion.
The actors play their roles very good. I am looking forward seeing more of them.
