It was beautifully filmed (even though the first few minutes, which are done in slow-motion, had me worried that this might be a pretentious lame movie), and I liked the comparison between the two sisters, each dealing with issues in different ways, and how when one was vulnerable and couldn't cope with a situation, the other was the strong one.
I felt depressed and oppressed during both parts of the film. And yeah, Kirsten was great in it. I really felt her pain and despair. And it seems, unlike most people, I liked the first part more than the second. Kirsten taking center-stage was better, even though the setting was a more-or-less rich-people marriage. She really delivered her role.
… because I love the unknown. love the unknown. he said he loves the unknown …
