What a brilliant movie.
I was getting ready to switch off, as I struggle with dubbed films, but after a few minutes I was gripped, even with the dubbed voices. The story was fantastic, very original, very intelligent, finally a film where the audience weren't treated as idiots. The acting was superb, the production values terrific, all helped to drive home the layered and comes story.
It had me questioning the whole way through, and left me guessing right until the end. This is one impressive movie. 9/10
