(ag) wrote: A very unnerving French thriller that definitely wears it's influences on it's sleeve. Although Lynch, Kubrick, Hitchcock and Bergman are probably staples in Director Dominik Moll's film school, it would be unfair to give him his own due credit for the fine thriller he has created. All performances are pitch perfect for the material, and their is thick tension guiding the viewer and the main character Alain Getty through the events portrayed. I am excited to see what the director has in store for his next film.

(gb) wrote: Great family movie....with a story line that touches hearts. It was great!!!!
(it) wrote: Pretty good. I couldn't guess all the twists in this one, which is why it qualifies as a good movie!
(gb) wrote: The pace and ideas behind the film should be lauded but the execution seems slightly off to the point where your mind may wander along the lines of "Kitano is dragging this one scene out too much, while he should have left the camera to linger longer on this point instead." It's not a violent film compared to most and it relies more on French New Wave aesthetics which both help and hinder everything including the ending.
