We are alone.
No matter what they tell you, we women are always alone.

A bit conflicted here.. the narrative is so anti-masculine, I can't take the story too seriously. Women suffering a great deal as a result of aggravated masculinity is very much a reality and the lack of moral fatherhood and faithful husbands does see societal corruption, but evil in general is not solely man's condition, like the film would suggest, and because of this I was detached from the characters and their plight. This is unfortunate because the film was wonderfully shot. Certain scenes held beautiful tracking moments and gripping action and were responsible for maintaining my attention throughout the film.
