The rescue of this film is the way in which the couple's love becomes sacrificed, because it questions whether love is really going to save each of the characters, and how far the ambition and guilt will come with the decisions they are making. The actions of the couple and another of the characters are realistic, and in the chaotic part of the plot they manage to convey the tension of what they are living.
