Quite good!
31 December 2015 | by fil-nik09See all my reviews

What an interesting movie! There is something quite Lana Del Reysque about this movie that is really intriguing and beautiful at the same time.

The main female role is perfect. Very convincing. Very French and suitable for this kind of mystery thriller. The title of the movie just adds something unusual to it which goes perfectly with unusual development of the movie. As the girl is on her way to the sea ( that she has never seen) you get the feeling that she is not well mentally...that maybe she has a bipolar dysfunctional personality or something. That even maybe it is something in her glasses that she switches from time to time or even that her bipolar personality has something to do with mirrors... Well, at least, I had that feeling. And the feeling of mystery - I would say - is the predominant in the movie.

It is nicely shot. Keeps you guessing and wondering ... the end with the explanation is really unexpected, but it is fitting.

All in all, quite good! 8 from me.

as it is some 2 hours and 45 minutes to midnight and new 2016, this may very well be the last movie I watched in 2015. Not a bad ending.
