There is nothing morereal in life more than death I Apreciated the movie secuence and the great end., I do not know why people rated low this movie, for me this movie was phenomenal. I imagine people are getting less sensitive in this century or people are forgetting to life free of materialism, violence and hatret. This movie is the oposite; true and pure love, respect to those gone and a good reason to clearly understand life. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I found this film endearing, tender, and a beautiful love story. Magnificent actors and sensitive direction. Watch it.
    If you only like action films with violence, sex and special effects, forget it. First you will have to wake up.

    I am a huge Anne Hathaway fan but I have to say that this is probably one of her worse movies. It's not bad through any fault of her own, the acting by everybody in the movie is solid. This is just horrible writing. It's incredibly predictable. My wife actually guessed this within the first ten minutes. I enjoyed watching the ending but the journey to get there was just not worth it.I am a huge Anne Hathaway fan but I have to say that this is probably one of her worse movies.

Also, Anne Hathaway's character is supposed to by a therapist which makes 90% of this movie frustrating in how un-professional she is. Overall I was very disappointed and wont be watching it again. If you catch it on TV you might enjoy it otherwise it's not really worth watching. Expand

    If you are looking for an intense-shocking thriller with a great twist in the end this movie is not your thing. Not that it's an awful film but it's not as good as you expect.

    Watched this on Netflix. Surprise ending.....very enthralled all the way through. I really enjoyed this movie which I didn't realize was made years ago. Its a film you can enjoy without having to really think too hard. I loved it!

  1. A clunky, dead-on-arrival scary drama that proves that even people with good taste need a good script or direction.
  2. The film is a misfire, which you feel more acutely given the talents of those involved, including director Rodrigo Garcia ("Nine Lives," "Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her") and rising star Anne Hathaway.

    Cruising somewhere between therapy drama and paranoid thriller, this middlebrow tone poem aims for ambiguity but often veers into soporific, suspending answers (and often, viewer interest) en route to an ending that explains all.
