Fine retelling of a distressing Anita Shreve novel. Changed so as to be less upsetting to American moviegoers. Good acting, but the full storyline is a little difficult to pick up for a while. Kathryn Bigelow does a good job of managing flashbacks to a hundred year old murder to semi-parallel it with a modern-day tragedy.

How to really watch this movie

"Get "Knife In The Water" and a documentary about Lizzy Borden, throw in some lesbians and some Ibsen, a short sleezy soft-porn film and take THAT home from the library. It couldn't be any more disjointed and silly than this mess. The actors are all phoning it in. If you want to see a film chopped into episodes, get "Kwaidan." If you want to see one where the bits all fit together, get "Pulp Fiction." I think "Weight" was supposed to be scary, but it's ridiculous. They wanted to throw people in the water off Halifax but they had to film the swimming scenes in Mexico -- because if you jump in the water off Halifax, you will freeze to death. Or you will come up screaming and covered in goose-bumps and that's not so attractive with a bikini. This thing is about as scary and goofy as "The Blair Witch Project.""

"I loved this move, I saw it on-demand and I must have watched it everyday. I finally decided to purchase it, and this was the cheapest price. Believe it or not, this is a true story."
