Writer’s Observation

An interesting and an uncomfortable movie to watch, and the pace is just a good speed, where the twins were very creepy and their entire acting was quite good. Their low ratings are really hard to understand. It’s a breath of clean air for this genre, even when there’s not really any metaphor or deep plot aside from the religious existence and speculations, but there are still very interesting questions and ideas that had been raised. Is it something that is mind blowing, probably not, but the talent and the art put in the film is appreciated.

Having adopted two children like that … let us say that they don’t seem to leave the impression that would create a wanting to keep them and have them around. This is what makes all things goes on … quite disturbing. It felt like the adult seemed not able to comprehend to that … maybe they’re in over their heads … Well, you will be the judge when you dare to see this through … it’s quite the test to see in my humble observation.
