    Yeah, the thing can be unsettling for obvious reasons but you know what’s more unsettling ? The kinda empathy toward Evie that is almost suggested by certain scenes. Or maybe it’s me after all.. 

    Not very likable of a movie even if it gas some good ideas such as slowmotion that focuses on frivolous instants life offers vs the normal pace of life after a shock. Shout also to the use of color to set apart the killers’ environnement from the famili’s one. Although not sure it was intended.

    Very tense thriller set in a city where  rain is always pouring yet the protagonists don’t hestistate to go out and do their job.

    All in all, a very unsettling yet interesting piece of cinema.

After of a good night of sleep and a cup of coffee, I’ve  come to the conclusion that It’s pointless to look for a straight story or any particular theme. This is a depiction of the lives of a couple of people that would intersect at some point but don’t necessarily influence each other, not in a direct way at least.

    The way I…
