Thanks for the review Cas. Definitely whetted my appetite for this one but if it gets even close to Taxi Driver I will be happy.

This sounds like a Hidden gem!

Am I going to be as impressed as I was with cold in July though? That film is a firm favourite of mine, came from absolutely nowhere!

Thanks for the review Cas, I will add this to my list (just got the MI 4K set today after your reviews :) )

It should be right up my street,but i didnt like it at all.Way too aloof,hinted and recycled.Maybe it is like most of the movies it takes inspiration from in the love or hate viewer's response.

Caught it at the cinema when it was released and while I thought it was a very good film, the images, tone and soundtrack have been on my mind ever since. Having it percolated through my mind so much, it's now a very strong contender for best film I've seen so far this year.

No spoilers, but the handholding scene was one of the most unexpectedly emotional scenes in a good while. Really hope Ramsey gets to make more films. She's only directed four films and three of them (Ratcatcher, We Need to Talk About Kevin and this) are stone-cold classics.

Watched this over the weekend. I liked the pacing and there was some genuinely interesting and original film making here. Like Jessica Noir said the handholding scene was particularly memorable. Overall I did find the film a little too emotionally detached possibly because of the almost total lack of dialogue.
Its thought provoking and my 7/10 now may get better as time goes by.

I was looking forward to watching this, but like some others have posted, I thought it was rubbish. I thought both video and dialogue were very hard to follow.

Just got around to watching this and thought it was brilliantly done. Everything shone about it.

Pity the Blu-rays are lazy when it comes to extras but the price has dropped to £7.49 on HMV here (as usual the pathetic Amazon have 'price matched').

I prefer the Spanish cover:
