After watching this film, I was a bit disappointed. While I enjoyed Karina Gidi's performance, portions of her character mystify me. The plot is not very engaging and most of the emotions/meanings of the film, while promising, never seem to deepen. The cinematography and editing were simple and average. I enjoyed myself during portions, especially the development of Gidi's character in the beginning. I think my basic problem was that the symbolisms and motifs were not developed enough to keep the tempo and narrative from lagging. The director (and the author of the novel) clearly had something to say but the film failed to make the point. A director can have an incredible concept but if he or she fails to communicate it through the film, there is nothing to look forward to but popcorn.
