It was a good book and a crappy movie. It's hard to figure out how to end movies where the action just keeps accelerating. It's about the bonds that form when people go through a tragedy, and the survivor's guilt that goes with it.
The moral of the story here seems to be, if you're in a position where your relationship with Samantha Morton is falling apart from neglect because you're obsessing over a balloon accident, it probably is a good idea to reexamine your priorities
Brilliantly acted and directed, with incredibly scenic shots all through. I really didn't know what to initially expect from the film, and though the opening scene was brilliant, as it went on I thought it lost itself a little, but it grew to be so much more than could have been expected. I really enjoyed it.
The music was also incredibly fitting -thought it a little odd at first but it added to the effect. 5 Star!
I don't know what it feels like to watch this film without having read the book. Having read it, I didn't like it very much. The story has been changed a lot, and I don't think it does justice to the characters. But performances are good, which I guess redeems it.
Starts of amazing. Great cinematography and intriguing story. Cool characters. Then it takes a plunge only equaled by Danny Boyle's sunshine. Deserves that somebody grabs it and make it again, this time without all that fatal attraction crap.
I haven't seen this film in a while, but I do remember that when I first saw it I was completely enamoured by it. It was a quaint little thriller, with a nice ammount of creepiness thrown in. And the performances were top notch, though I have to admit, Craig's character became slightly annoying towards the end. But overall i would have to say it's a very good film.
