Okay, so this is two reviews in one. I watched this with my best friend and we both had totally opposite opinions. I thought that it was a well written (if you suspend your disbelief for an hour and a half) and thoroughly entertaining, if not thrilling movie. the actors were just 10/10, especially the lead. also, i loved the ending and thought that it delivered. my friend thought that it was pretty bland, and was waiting for something happen the whole time. i think she expected more from it, and i think if you're looking for an exciting movie you may want to watch something else. we both thought it was just beautifully shot though.
Damn, I loved this a lot.
This movie was so slow and it has no scary parts or really action parts. I am sad I sat though an hour and a half of this film. I would not recommend but to each their own.
ps great point impatientgodot,because,yeah,me too. godot all over my house,under this tree !
A great movie. Definitely not action packed or fast paced, if that is what you are looking for. Rather, it is quiet film driven by the characters rather than a plot. Great stuff.
