Rarely do I leave a theater feeling that I squandered two hours of my life. Such was the comment made by a member of our party and I wholeheartedly agreed. I read the positive reviews and chose to attend a screening based upon them. Were we watching the same movie? I found this movie tedious and with very little redeeming qualities. The only positive I can give is that it depicted the time period and desolation of life in a very realistic way but I could not find anything positive to say beyond that. I was not certain whether it would be a movie that invoked terror or inspired a healthy debate among our group but was sorely disappointed on all counts. I usually attempt to find the strong points and write a balanced review but I felt it was simply a waste of time and money and cannot endorse it. I realize a number of reviewers found some lofty purpose to the film but I just could not derive any enjoyment from this film on any level.
I won't waste words explaining the plotline...other than to say that it is unique in many ways and all of them good. I would rather encourage anyone considering a movie to see this one! I have been so often disappointed in movies lately that I grimaced at the thought of one more possible disappointment But I was invited to a premier screening and decided to give it a go. I must say that I was so impressed with the quality of this film. The acting is stellar, the storyline gives you pause to consider nuances you thought you had considered but it touches you on an emotional level so subtly that you become vested in each character without consciously being aware of it. Our theater gave it a standing ovation with applause and that is so rare to be touched emotionally and feel compelled to express it. Bravo!
