A film that simultaneously makes your blood boil and makes you silently contemplate your reasons for feeling as such. Though occasionally explicit without outright reason (in the tradition of most Dogma 95 films), it stands head and shoulders above most in the manifesto's catalogue by providing complex human analysis to coincide with the rough cinematography.

Overrated and filled with dogma clichés, this movie really isn't named properly. I would have named it "long and useless pain", but maybe that's why I'm not a director or scenarist ; I can't find catchy names.
