João R.'s rating of the film Martyrs

A remake of a movie that didn't need one, since the original story was already so astonishing and mesmerizing. The only addition that could be described as "interesting" was the exploration of the origins of their friendship. Ignoring that this is a remake, the tension here is lacking in reaching a level of adequacy and, even if we watch the early stages of this relationship, their bound don't seem so strong.
