Stardom as a life goal.
24 January 2018 | by bodo-48410See all my reviews

A great psychological thriller and an original story. It keeps the viewer engaged throughout and is never predictable or clichéd. An important illness to explore and an effective exploration for sure. The acting is great throughout, the viewer is effectively made to feel for Veras. The camerawork is done very well and builds suspense and tension effectively throughout the film; similarly the editing is very precice, strict but effective and goes under the skin.

The moment in the basement that begins with the teacup - seemingly a surreal piece of filmmaking that is then explained by the door is great and totally original. The scene that follows is terrifying and very clever. A highly original and surreal portrayal of a woman's entrapment, a nightmarish exploration of what idealism can do.
