Ally's rating of the film Pity

The first half of the film opens the question as to who is more locked-in, the wife comatose in hospital or the husband locked in affectless daily rituals, shown in remorselessly formalist manner. (Possibly the friend Niko is the only character with a given name in the film?) The film is let down by its prepack denouement, though, far more courageous surely to leave the protagonist suspended in inauthenticity?
