" chosen by Eric Notes: Eventually, even though I really liked this movie, I can’t say I really loved it though. Basically, it was a rather dark and gloomy picture, with some nice directing and really strong acting but, to be honest, I didn’t like their approach of showing a harsh reality while telling you at the same time ‘Don’t worry, this is't actually reality, it is in fact some magic realism so you shouldn’t worry about the terrible fate of these characters’. I also didn’t lik"
