Quotes

Hospital Representative: Your daughter was killed playing in the street outside your house just two weeks before David came back from Iraq.
The Individual: What's Sarah got to do with it? Why are you talking about this?
Hospital Representative: We think it's key to David's condition. It was clear from his evaluation that he holds an individual responsible. Now, you wouldn't happen to know who that might be? You?
The Individual: G-d, maybe? It was G-d's will that Sarah was taken from us.

Liked it, believe it or not.
30 April 2009 | by vawmorSee all my reviews

I liked it, believe it or not. it's not the common sci-fi stuff that you usually see out there. is different, incredibly artistic, not bad but not that good either.

the cast is simply amazing. Sam Riley is good as always, Eva green gets the biggest role and rocks at it, an Ryan Phillipe really surprised me (he didn't like him much before this movie).

i enjoyed it, i think it has some flaws, but in the end it is just what it promises to be: unusual and artistic. if you're a "classic movie" lover, you will not appreciate this movie at all. i've you're a "new wave" kind of person it's a must-see.
