| a really good film
This is a really good film, with a solid plot, very good acting, good scenes and photography, good storytelling. I don't get the really low ratings from many viewers ... or I do? Most of them complain about the film being slow. Ladies and gentlemen, films can be slow, can't they? THey're not bloody Ferrari, are they? What is wrong with a slow film? I think that generation of ignorant and undereducated people have been used too much to Hollywood crap and their brains have shrank up to having the attention span and stimuli need of ant-aize brain. They need explosion, sensless plot with unlikely situations and even more unlikely solutions, they need the awe. So a good solid well written and acted film, beautifully shot, with also some psychological insight becomes worth of just 1, 2 or 3 stars and is disappointing to them because it is "slow" and doesn't replicate hollywood style s h i t . I guess what people nowadays demands to films is consistent with more and more an industrial product with standard characteristics and less and less with art and insight. Not that this film is a masterpiece, it is just a very good film. Not enough? So don't pay attention to them, just sit down, relax and enjoy this beautiful film. Not easy to find these days where 95% of releases are c r a p for lobotomized people.
