The Stains Of Time Are Ever Present in This Story and Its Reality
The first time i watched this movie, I was taken aback by the hypnotizing cinematography that hi-lighted the ruins of the house it is shot in. As the images presented theme-selves on screen, i realized that i was now way too involved in what was to happen with the characters. By the time the ending came about i was filled with a feeling of dread and hope, something that ached for weeks onwards.
But the impact the film had on me further grew as I researched more. The characters in the film, are playing themselves and reenacting a situation that is still happening to them. I've never heard of a movie do something like this, and the level of performance acquired from these suffering non-actors is something else. This is not something to be missed.
