I saw this movie with absolutely no expectations, and I liked it a lot.
I really felt that it's a story that could have been set anywhere in the world, and even at any time in human history. If you take away some modern technology (which are really just props and not that important to the story) the movie could have been set in the stone age.
If you're expecting an R-rated "rape-revenge movie" you will probably get disappointed. Because that is not what this movie is. It's a poetic and beautiful portrayal of human nature.
But I believe it would have been even better if they had been brave enough to make it 100% free of dialog. It would have felt even more timeless.
