User Reviews

portrayal of the dynamic of teen angst
31 January 2014 | by thegiashootSee all my reviews

Actually don't agree with previews reviewer at all. Very dark, atmospheric and sophisticated story about the dynamic of teenage angst. This is for sure not your average thriller because it goes much deeper. The actors are totally believable and it sometimes feels like you know each of them from high school.it's fascinating to watch them as the story unfolds and the ending is just a punch in your gut.You can bet that the film will massively polarize and if you're looking for "I know what you did last summer" you will be very disappointed, if you liked "Twin Peaks" you might dig this one. Looking at some of the other films the director made one can see that he obviously enjoys being in the audiences face and not necessarily giving them what they expect. Worth checking it out.
