    I liked the movie. The main characters were emotionally complex. My only problem was that it was very predictable. I found the music very unsettling and tension building. It's on 10 list so the movie has been accepted by many critics. 2 years 2 months ago

    A very unnerving psychological thriller that might appear simple on the surface but is actually a quite complex and subtle piece. I thought it was masterfully directed.. 5 years 3 months ago

    not a thriller, not a romance, not a mystery
