Another gem hidden in the "horror" drawer, which is sure to get a lot of the jaded horror crowd bitching "boring" while being ignored by viewers looking for more substance than the usual jump scare/gorefest.
Very recommended if you like horror movies/tv that subvert the tropes of the genre to tell a story about the real horror of our world.
Loved it. Think it's more a drama than a horror/thriller, how awful it must be to process such a trauma. Of course there are some jumpscares and some tension but the multiple layers in the movie really got me. Very good acting from both main characters only the lighting in the movie felt a bit like a cheap shot sometimes.
As other commenters pointed out, it definitely qualifies as a drama much more than the average horror movie does. Personally I still found it to be scary in it's own way, in part because of the hard-hitting subjects it approaches of being a war refugee and seeking shelter in a mostly hostile country.
It's a beautiful story and a refreshing take on the horror genre. I always enjoy seeing film makers put forward their own culture and share their unique view on topics that we can all empathize with: regrets and grief in this specific case.
I highly recommend it for people who enjoy reality-based horror!
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
