However, when her health starts improving, Martin fears losing her, so he begins tampering with her treatment, keeping Diane sick and in the hospital right next to him. Written by
at first sigh, not very inspired. first cause - the impression than the role is too high for Orlando Bloom. the second - the purpose of director/scriptwriter remains an enigma because the desire to tell all, to impress, to do a special film, to create a thriller and a portrait of medical case is really confuse. but... Orlando Bloom does good job. and this fact is essential. his work gives precise nuances to the desire of his character to resolve each aspect. and the fragile story is not credible only at first sigh. because, it is only an experiment. not bad. just to large to have coherent borders. but, this is not a sin. and experiments are only beginning for better projects. so, the fans of mister Bloom are not disappointed. the rest - few slices of patience are perfect. and, in same time, the courage to be parts of this experiment in which viewer is a kind of scriptwriter. the great virtue - atmosphere of hospital. and, sure, drawing of pressure of every-day like rule of each day . a nice film. not great. but different. as every experiment. seductive for its good intentions.
