I thought this was a very good movie with good acting and pacing of the storyline. The underlying message is what's most important when watching this film, and it has to do with the theory of why we as humans are so emotionally detached and messed up. It all starts with our childhood and the impact our parents or guardian and environment has on us. The director did an outstanding job relaying that message. I can understand why Adrian Brody won an Oscar for best actor some years ago because he was really great in this and there's just something so moving about the way he can express emotions through his eyes. You can feel every emotion that he wants you to feel just by looking at those eyes of his! This movie is a must see!
