Great film, but could be longer and more elaborated
This review is not going to contain spoilers. It was a very nice film. Family relationships, love, denial, hurt. All of it was in this movie. It really made me care for the characters and their stories, it kept me interested, sometimes even on the edge of my seat, up to the last seconds of it. The one main disadvantage i found was it was not fully elaborated in my opinion. I think the film had much more potential, if only it were longer and more developed. As I finished watching, I felt that many things could have been more elaborated and developed, stories and characters in the movie did not reach their full potential. I felt that many important things stayed undeveloped, under the surface and between the lines.
Now, the ending - (no spoilers) it felt somewhat forced and rushed to me. Although I was more or less pleased with it, I didn't feel that there was a proper closure to the movie.
All in all, it was a very nice movie, although not providing proper closure to several things.
