Belinda S. (niara) from NEW YORK, NY
Reviewed on 7/2/2015...
For the first half hour I could not understand a single word because of the thick accents. No subtitles. I clearly remember thinking: I'm going to give this another half hour and if I still can't understand what is being said I am going to turn it off. Magically, unbelievably, within the half hour I was able to understand.
To say this is a gritty and dark film is an understatement. You feel as with each passing moment you sink lower and lower into the dark earth and at the film's conclusion, you struggle to make your way to back to the light.
Stunning, absolutely stunning. Left me breathless. As the credits rolled, I could not move from the sofa. I realized that us Americans will never get it right; we cater too much to advertisers and make films/shows for 14 year old boys. You have to stay with it because it is quite the puzzle but it was written with the thought that the audience that does hang around and get it are the ones they were going after anyway. This is not a pretty film. There are no happy endings. Definitely not for the faint of heart. "Dark" does not even begin to describe it. I felt as if I were on a roller coaster, hurtling through the darkness, buckled in only by the slimmest of belts, and left never quite the same way again. Haunting. A cinematic masterpiece, in my opinion.
