So Depressing
17 September 2014 | by yespatSee all my reviews

All the acting was good, scenery, everything like that but none of the characters made me want to care about them. And worse than that, the storyline just kept getting more and more depressing.

I gave it four stars because it was adequately well done but if I had known how dreadfully depressing it was with no redeeming characters, I surely would not have wasted my time.

And I agree that not every movie has to have a happy ending but I just cannot see enough of a reason to recommend this film.

The subtitles were better executed than most foreign films, though even those weren't perfect.

So if you want to have a down day, this is the film for you.
