The garden once fair, became cold and foul, like the corpse of her had been its soul. Which at first was lovely, as if in sleep, and slowly changed 'til it grew a heap, to make men tremble and never sleep. Shelley, my favorite poet. He was English, but he wrote these lines right here in Tuscany. My father thinks that poetry is for people who haven't yet reached, or just lost the gift of reason.

Good ending but takes forever to 'get to the action'..
When I say 'action', I mean getting to the meat of the story.
First 50 mins (and yes, I went back and double checked on BluRay) were way too boring. So boring that I had this BluRay since 2014 and only NOW (in 2015) sat through it all because I had nothing else to watch.
So yeah, first 50 mins will bore you. Last 35 mins will enthrall you.
Last 35 mins also are surprisingly darker than I imagined, for this movie. First 50 mins give you the impression that you are watching some same old cliché-fest of a ghost movie. But I would say, the ending moments are pretty good.
Also, the movie is well acted. But some of the dialogues feel too artificial (only 'some'). Overall, watch the movie for the last 35 mins, it's worth it.
5/10 (5 for the last 35 mins, -5 for the first 50 mins)
