It's a great movie, nice pace that doesn't feel like it was filmed over 30 years ago. It has many layers and gives a lot of thought regarding: "What would I do in their place?" - and even the ending seems positive and reassuring. Every suffering comes to an end. Highly recommend this one. Probably will read the book too.
