A deliberate slow pace, but does not get boring. Not as good as Haneke's Funny Games. 4 stars.

Original, and holds the viewer's attention with its deliberate, patient pace. It is confusing initially, one is genuinely baffled as to what is actually happening and how it can possibly be explained.
I have seen thousands of "jump moments", "shock frames", whatever you want to call them.........most you see coming, some genuinely make you jump. There is such a moment in this film, I do not believe that anybody, even if they have heard a mild spoiler in a review as long as the spoiler is not too descriptive, that will spot it coming, I genuinely missed a breath and a heartbeat!
And some reviewers say that it ends ambiguously, but I insist that the final 100 seconds show us exactly what had taken place.
