Trivia

The movie contains two references to Samuel Beckett's iconic play Waiting for Godot. First when Jessie quotes the line, "They give birth astride of a grave, the light gleams an instant, then it's night once more." The second reference is when Miles and Flora refer to themselves as Vladimir and Estragon, and to their father as Godot. The familiarity that these young children display with Beckett's play, also serves as an additional clue that they, like Jessie, now exist only in Quint's mind. See more »

never thought going to write a review, I totally see those reactionary first-time reviewers
12 July 2019 | by UgurBayraktarSee all my reviews

I am just amazed to read the high rates for this film. Yes, I know there are many PR works on movies so that it looks "decent" on the database, but the reviews on this one have looked quite sincere. Yet, I have just watched the movie, and it is not a movie at all!

The plot is so weak, and the annoying children keep talking behind the shots, and there is not one single "rational" character in the movie! Seriously.

Reviews aside, I am really curious about how this movie got so many - probably insignificant - rewards. Okay, low-budget, okay first movie, but every possible thing about the movie is so cheesy.
