2-3. Its stylistic choices would be more defensible in a movie that was a tad less dull. For the longest time, the movie gives barely anything to the 'horror' part of its equation. Every potential scare is there and gone too soon. It has a certain political weight, but its message is almost overly simplistic (the regime stealing and breaking a feminine innocence the heroine tries helplessly to preserve, etc.).
well made and more profound than your run-of-the-mill scary ghost film, but I can't help thinking it feels this way simply because it's about another type of haunting (ie cultural differences). had this been about an american family, it probably wouldn't have been that good. still, I like what the ending implies and nice character build-up.
