Gino said it. It was really hard to watch but I stuck it out. I haven't seen the original so I can't compare them. Of all the Haneke films I have seen, this one was the most painful to watch.
Holy Crap! Wow. I just saw this and I'm absolutely flabbergasted. This movie was so intense and disturbing. The deconstruction of all their possessions was one of the scariest things I've ever seen. This is based on a true story and I love how Haneke does not tell us anything, but at the same time it makes me angry at him for not telling us why this happened. Haneke is the master of shock.
I just saw it and it completely blew me away. The maturity of the young actors was astonishing. The story is so heartfelt. I really liked how it dealt with loneliness in a mature way. I like the fact it was told through a 12 year old's eyes and not an adult. I liked how the film showed what it was like being Eli. Her life was not glamorous at all like most vampire movies make them out to be.
