Writers block ... different edition. But again one, that you may have seen before or even if not, the mood of the movie seems to give away where this is heading. At least generally. If it were all smooth sailing, you wouldn't have a real movie. You need conflict in there, you need something that grips you and the characters in the movie.

Hopefully the right way and the suspension must work too. In this case there are cliches and you may shake your head on how gullyble the main character seems to be. You may very well be annoyed by her behaviour. If that is the case, you may not really enjoy what is coming. But there are things to discover and it still works as mystery thriller. It may not be Polanskis best (or anyone elses), but it's more than decent
