Saw this last night at TIFF. it was hard to sit for the whole movie.. Acting was just terrible, it was like these people had never acted before, or maybe this was there first time acting in English.
As for the plot...Its a simple one with the story that is stretched for too long. At times you are wondering what does the last 10 min has to do with the overall story...This is what you get when the director writes the scripts, and produces the movie...it becomes a college project... and the music, at times you wonder what was he thinking..even the volume of the music was not same across the movie..
Its a 2 star, just for some of the cinematography... save yourself your time and stay away. A lot of people left right after the credit started, which is rare at TIFF.
