This movie is weird & I don't mean like Portland weird - but it's weird weird, if you know what I mean. Cinematography was lovely, editing clever, performances fairly nuanced. It's not really what the previews make it out to be but does have some of the alluded to incestuous eroticism. Really though this film is about a girl becoming a woman, in a very macabre, deranged, and morally deviant way.

Yawn... waited till bitter end for the movie to get better. What a waste of my life.

A slow creepy drama. Slightly disturbing. Well cast, but seemed like it was aiming for more than it actually delivered - stylish, but as hollow as the characters portrayed. Worth a look though, some good scenes, including the duet on the piano.

Boring movie. Story disjointed and hard to follow. My husband and I suffered through to the end, hoping the movie would get better.

Graphics for the poster, the photography were beautiful. I just didn't care about any of the characters--if I don't care about the characters, no matter how great the rest of the picture is I don't like it.

Lots of different opinions on this film, but I found it slow. I kept waiting for something supernatural to happen, but it is more of a psychological thriller - just not very thrilling. Some unforeseen twists, but others you see like headlights on a car.

I went back and forth as to whether or not i wanted to see this one. I really like all three actors and the storyline seemed quirky enough for me to enjoy. ... i couldn't finish it. It was dry and boring and too "clever" for me. I will agree with fellow viewers that it visually was beautiful and there was a wonderful way at visualizing sounds... but in the end i just couldn't do it.

Totally agree that the cinematography was outstanding in this movie (I particularly liked the hair brushing scene). I did not like the movie in regards to the story line. The ending made me feel very unsettled.

Creepy, interesting, but I had a hard time sympathizing with any of the characters. Reminded me of Hamlet. Outstanding cinematography - I saw it months ago but I can still recall certain images very clearly.

Very atmospheric. Very unengaging. A couple of twists but rather dull because of the obvious predictablity. It unfolded very well however it was so overly dramatic. Someone was obviously more into the cinematography and how it looked than the actual movie..... Was like a lifetime movie on steroids.

From IMDb: India Stoker: My ears hear what others cannot hear; small faraway things people cannot normally see are visible to me. These senses are the fruits of a lifetime of longing, longing to be rescued, to be completed. Just as the skirt needs the wind to billow, I'm not formed by things that are of myself alone. I wear my father's belt tied around my mother's blouse, and shoes which are from my uncle. This is me. Just as a flower does not choose its color, we are not responsible for what we have come to be. Only once you realize this do you become free, and to become adult is to become free.

India Stoker: He used to say, sometimes you need to do something bad to stop you from doing something worse.

Evelyn Stoker (to her daughter, India): "You know, I've often wondered why it is we have children in the first place... and the conclusion I've come to is... at some point in our lives we realize things are... they're screwed up beyond repair. So we decide to start again. Wipe the slate clean. Start fresh. And then we have children. Little carbon copies we can turn to and say, "You will do what I could not. You will succeed where I have failed." Because we want someone to get it right this time. ...But not me... Personally speaking, I can't wait to watch life TEAR-YOU-APART..."
