The movie good?:
This film was the winner of Palme D’Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2010 but unfortunately this is also one of the most boring film I’ve ever seen in my life.
Tell me, it is worth watching?:
It takes me 3 attempts to watch this film. The first and the second attempt I fall asleep just after entering the 40th minutes. In the end I managed to finish the film but left wandering what actually this movie all about?, and how the hell it won the Palme D’Or.
90% of Tomatometer and an average 7.9/10 of rating! (seems like Rottentomateos readers enjoys more than IMDb)
