Went with big expectations but was very disappointed. This movie had a huge advertising in my country, but everything important was shown on trailer, so there was no secret left. I've seen many Oscar award wining movies with a bit similar story line or style and I hoped this one was going to be as good or at least close as good as those, but it wasn't
In this film acting is so bad that you can not see any emotion in actors facial expressions or eyes while by the story line there should be some great soul struggles and life changing events. There are no motivation beyond any character's action.
Awful direction, screenplay and acting.
