This is a slow, somber and atmospheric character study that takes its time getting to where it's going, but it's worth the trip if you have the patience. Just don't go in expecting easy answers or 'Lost'-style mysteries.

FYI: I watched the German version with English subtitles -- the film would be more immersive if you can find the updated version where the voice-over is re-done in English by the same actress.

I really liked this movie, the acting is good, the story is original, different and intriguing. Perhaps a little slow.
