I make no secret of my stance when it comes to this subject. I’m extremely against it.
However there’s no doubting it makes for gripping cinema.
Nice characters. In fact I thought all the characters were good. The performances were strong, I liked the photography and quite frankly I found this film captivating.
During the birthday dinner scene at one stage I just stopped reading the subtitles because I just wanted to concerntrate on Anamaria Marinca as Otilia deep in thought or most likely turmoil.
