A little confusing, but the run through the woods was good. I'd give it a 3 but Max Von Sydow bumps it up to a 4. Could use more of him.
This film is a mesmerizing/hypnotizing film. It plays with the concepts of luck and syncronicity in an interesting and intriguing way. I would highly recommend this to any fans of psychological horror or thrillers. Also recommended in the same vein: Fermat's Room, 13 Tzameti and it's English remake 13 (2010).
This isn't a great film, but it's interesting enough that even ten years after watching it some scenes will pop into your head and you'll think "Oh yeah, that movie was ok." Especially if you happen to be running through the woods.
I love this film!
Mesmerizing thriller. This has been on my tops list for years. Great offering, despite not being horror.
