A very interesting cast (Livinstone, Kier, Penn and Ledoyen!) for a topic that can't leave people insensitive. The whole experience is made even more poignant and distressing since there seems to be no way out. Thuy Nguyên is perfect as the little girl.
Guy Moshe doesn't judge and plays out the beauty of the scenery against the horror that is hiding behind the doors. A pity his film was truncated by the producers.
