A “psychological thriller” which is neither psychological or thrilling.
When a group of women who all work at a centre for intelligence on genocide start to receive threatening letters, the believe its the work or a war criminal until they start to turn on each other, suspecting their work colleagues as the culprit.
And that’s about all that is going to get you through the 2hrs of boredom that ensues. There’s so many threads that just don’t matter to the story that it all just becomes more and more unbelievable. Its a story which should feel like it’s a true story to draw you in, but it just cannot grasp the audience.
Then lets address the acting. Everything just feels non-descript and emotionless from everyone involved. Not once did I feel like I was involved in the story or invested in anyone at all and it massively suffers because of this.
A poorly written and acted film I won’t be recommending to many to watch.
