A very powerful, incredibly put together tale of vengeance, guilt and regret. This is a perfect example of how to make a character piece right. Each of the main characters are suffering from guilt in their own ways and the profile on all three of them is brilliant. It gets so emotional the further along it goes and more and more tense, waiting to see which of these characters is going to crack first. They all create world where anything is reasonably possible, given what these people have suffered through. It’s just watching them fall further into their own internal pain, waiting to see who will let it out first and in what way. Everything is structured so well, nothing feels gratuitous or unnecessary. The acting from the whole cast is outstanding. Probably the most surprising part of the film is that the criminal we are introduced to at the very beginning ends up being the moral center of the film, as this man brings along one event that shatters the lives of a seemingly normal couple. Absolutely one of the best of ’09, something that everyone should see.
