An extremely simple and boring story told in unnecessarily complex way
10 February 2019 | by konporerSee all my reviews

A very simple story told in unnecessarily complex ways to make up a suspense that wasn't there to begin with and pays off in a disappointing way. How can such a simple and dumb, boring story gets funded into such a high budget, well filmed and acted movie is really beyond me.

#### Synopsis (spoilers) The story is told in retrospect from a young couple of boy and girl with all kinds of minor details, repeats of dialogues and pauses that eventually and finally build up into a tale of how their 2 mothers married after two attractive retired Russian mafia walked into their lives, one of which killed a kid for the donation of organs to save the girl when she was just born, and the other one later kills himself to donate his own organ to the boy dying from a car accident, when it was revealed to him the boy was his son by the mother before she dies from that same accident. And thats about it, there are tons of other minor plot lines that dont do much other than to inflate the play time and make you think there are more than what there actually is, like the mother of the boy was lesbian in relationship with a writer researching about Russian mafia, the girl was infatuated with the other Russian mafia when he moved into her house after he was divorced from a marriage that was also remembered and told in details like the weddings and such, whom the girl relentlessly attempted to seduce, betraying the boy, the girl's mother's mental illness hearing a kid's screams all the time, hinted in the end as the voice of the boy murdered for the organ donation, how the girl's rich grandfather that made the Russian mafia kill the boy for donation are dealing with guilt, etc.
