From reading the synopsis on this movie I was quite looking forward to seeing it but I can't express how disappointed I was. There was no storyline, the relationship between Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan as brother and sister was completely unrealistic (e.g. He walks into the bathroom whilst she's in the shower and she doesn't rush to grab a towel to cover her modesty?!). There was nothing likeable about the characters and nothing interesting happened at all.
If you like "artsy" films where the scenery is pretty and the camera work is good then this is the film for you. If you like a decent storyline and a character you care about then it most definitely is not.
Michael Fassbender's acting in this movie is extraordinary. Carey Mulligan is beautiful and equally as sublime. The movie is a stark and realistic look at life, and it has a lot to say and make you think about.
I cannot recommend this movie enough, take other reviews with a pinch of salt.
After reading various reviews about this movie, I wasn't too sure of what to expect........but after watching it, all I can say is.....horrible!!!!
This is dark and depressing and holds nothing back.
It has no shock value or even a story line, but offers a window into a life which lacks both feeling and emotion, and only shows a very sad depraved life without the slightest hint of explanation!
I'm sure there are people who will call it a work of 'Cinematic Art', I can only call it what I see.....DESOLATE!!
