Okay, but wildly overrated and predictable.

'wildly overrated and predicatable', really mr Hanke? This film is almost universally praised and it certainly wasn't predictable for the majority of us that watched it when it first came out. Yes the ending is signalled right from the very start but in such subtle elegant ways that I am bemused how anyone would guess the final closing scenes of this incredibly haunting thriller - you probably saw the re make first didn't you? Maybe you thought the re make far superior to the original, it wouldn't surprise me. Don't think i've EVER read a review that was so critically misguided as this in all my thirty years of cinema going, you sir should not be allowed anywhere near a movie review column.
