what the others say
"A slow-burning, beautifully shot, understated philosophical thriller."
"If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise, in the form of an elegant genre-hopper coming on like Werner Herzog meets Michael Crighton."
Little White Lies
"Unfocused and thematically overburdened. More could have been said with less."
