| Interesting plot, worked out proficiently in the first half. That plot dies halfway, however, and thus missed several potentially interesting developments
I saw this film at the Rotterdam film festival (IFFR) 2014. In a nutshell: too many statistically impossible coincidences, and too slow developments overall. The plot is interesting, and is worked out proficiently in the first half, where the pace is bearable while there is some steady progress all along.

In the second half, I felt that there were too many coincidences, most of them unnecessary and also not used as effectively as could have been. To avoid spoilers, I refrain from providing examples. Nevertheless, not boring overall, and several unexpected events make it a moderately good watch. Everyone's personal motives, why they do what they do, are not evident and certainly not compelling, so I don't think this film qualifies as a drama. The main character does not grow in his role that has befallen him, and thus missed many potential dramatic avenues that could have made this film much more interesting.
