This film just looks gorgeous and the whole cast just fits everything in this film. Incredible. Having watched the American remake, I could appreciate the story but like many remakes felt like I was being cheated out of something. This film is just beautiful on so many levels. Its a film that you can put on and just take in without really having to engage too much as the story unravels at a steady but conclusive pace. Would be a great winter film, with the fire roaring away in the background. I cant get the snow out my head!
Really creepy and strangely romantic story. Much more subtle than the American remake. Recommended viewing.
Great film, dark plot, amazing story... bit slow tho. imo
Marvellous film. Moving. Scary.
This film is utterly moving in a disturbing way. Much more gruesome of what I thought it would be, but counterbalance with the right dose of humanity, love and understanding!
