This is a special film. probably one of the darkest and depressing I've ever seen too. Truely heartbreaking and totally absorbing. I was on the verge of tears throughout most of the final third.
I've not seen a film being so elequent about human hardship since 'The Squid and the Whale'.
Good wee movie. It's a weird one though. I had no interest in this until everyone started going mad. It's hard to have an objective opinion on it without having the hype influence your thoughts in some way.
All I can say is that I enjoyed it and was entertained. I liked the novelty of a soundless story and the alternative focus this brings to the movie experience.
