Definitely not your average movie. An interesting perspective of every day folks in a land with possibly different values and ethics to ones in the audience.
There are no heroes in this movie, each character has a part to play and has to deal with his or her own fears as the plot unfolds.
The parents of a family that has issues hits a snag that temporarily puts their plans on hold as they deal with the crisis. But the development of this crisis is integrated so seamlessly with the movie that it excels in emphasizing the normality of life in this land. These are just everyday average citizens going about their lives – this movie could just have easily been about any family in any land in this world. Well done!
Convincing performances by the cast. If there is one gripe it is the crying of the children that defeated the suspension of disbelief. But that is a very minor quibble – the children performed admirably!
If you're in the mood for something different, without explosions, dramatic music (mind you – the theme music is great – lends itself to the material under consideration with its haunting melody), fast action and the like, here is something that may give you something to ponder long after the movie has finished.
