I admit I only took a chance on this film because of Liev and afterwards I read a review here claiming this film had the most fake positive ratings. Well I'm not fake with over 300 reviews and I undoubtedly enjoyed this film. This style of filming called RASHOMON-style ( A story where the same event or timeline is recounted by several characters.) Is impressive on a few different levels. Of course the acting is superb no need to mention the names and no one did horrible as some people would lead you to believe, But the premise of this storyline through contrasting these characters different economic classes shows more similarities than not. The pace of the films pretty good but it can be a tad jarring because of the style I mentioned where each character returns to a previous point in time but from their point of view. But as the story unfolds and informations revealed the character development is awesome to see. Yes I would recommend this film most will highly enjoy it, Don't believe a loathing Variety or Ebert review. The majority always feels the opposite of what they write anyway and you will too.
