Never trust a helping hand

This film had been on my to-see list ever since it came out. I can gladly say that it perfectly fulfilled my expectations. The only advice I can give, is to not expect to be overwhelmed by the time the film ends. Though things get pretty demented at times, the ways of this film are strangely subtle & sinisterly humorous. If you’ve enjoyed Michael Haneke‘s Funny Games (1997), then you should not hesitate to see this French film too.
