    Interesting plot.
    Great acting.
    Beautiful cinematography.
    Miserable and depressing.
    Awesome fight scene.
    Superb music.

    It was a really good film, although it lost me at a few points. The twist was excellent.

    Much more thoughtful than a Hollywood movie would perform following that premise and more than just a "revenge film". 5 years 1 month ago

    The most depressing sickening film I've ever seen.
    I liked it.
