I think it's brilliant that we don't get to know Sebastian that much. It focuses our attention to what is, what's going on and so on. We get to know Sebastian here and now. And that way kind of who he really is. For example, he dose not show his true self when he is chat dating, he never tells them what he does. He dose not say anything, really. So sort of we do get to know him better than most others.

This film totally flipped me over by the end of it. It was exciting to follow the whole time, but it was the end of it that impressed me. It's got the sneaky result of the development of the persons. It's hard to comment without ruining for others who has not watched it yet. But I can say it's the connection between the voice in the beginning and the voice at the end of the film, that really got to me. It's got a beautiful connection between two persons who we thought were so unlike..
