Powerful
29 October 2014 | by nattylap2See all my reviews

Silly me. I thought these reviews were supposed to be about a movie, not a means to dispense convoluted political and racist ideology.

This film was so good that I almost felt like applauding at the conclusion. But considering the subject matter, that would have been rather inappropriate.

The film was taut and suspenseful, even tho you pretty much suspected how it would end. The performances were all on point. Even the subtitling was well done.

Yes, the subject was depressing. But it was a real life story. We can't alter the facts. But you can certainly appreciate the quality, and the message.
