The film was a master piece and done so well by the actors. I couldn't help but feel all of loneliness and insecurity of Claire in her final moments and how she felt defeated so defeated she literally wanted to curl up and die. The beautiful Astrid was truly out of her mind with desperation when the only real person who showed her what it was like to be loved for herself was dying. Ingrid was excellent as the narcissist mother whose daughter could only aspire to be her mirror image as far as Ingrid was concerned. She didn't care about her daughters needs and feelings at all. I watched the movie over and over as it was like watching my own life story. I never understood my past until I realized I was dealing with a narcissist mother like Ingrid and their just was no way to get her to truly love me. The best part was when Ingrid broke away and found Paul and was finally free of her mother. I knew that feeling to when I found my spouse in Europe. You see you can never get far away enough from these people or they will run and ruin your life. Also Robin Wright did an excellent job portraying those fake moralist foster families allot of them are out for the money and to get you do their chores which never finish. I had one who liked to spy on all the kids then go and refer what they said and did. She was evil and made the boys stand up all night until her husband came home in the morning after the night shift just because they had a one-time pillow fight and God knows how they needed to have some fun for once. I got sick and she made me sit outside in the cold on the porch steps and then threw two aspirins at me that I never found.
