Great Drama

This is actually a four star movie that only drops to a 3 star because of the pull the rug out ending, but it is still a movie NOT TO BE MISSED that is way better than most of the garbage out there. In actual movie reviews, 3 stars is very solid and 4 stars is cream of the crop, 5 stars is once in a blue moon. But most Amazon reviews are 5 star/1 star. I'm giving it 5 Amazon stars here to pull it back up from the wrong-headed reviews some of the other Amazon reviewers have posted. This is quality stuff. I was thoroughly engaged throughout and although I didn't like the ending, I expect I'll like it better than Ibsen's original ending. Or if it's the same in the play then I'll have to forgive the filmmakers for just staying true to the source. I definitely plan to listen to the play now (The Wild Duck by Henrik Ibsen, available free from Librivox.org, or 6 bucks from Audible.) I was very pleasantly surprised by this movie because I went into it with no expectations really. Very nice acting, complicated performances, organic adaptation of a play from 1884 to contemporary times.

Deserved a better ending

Engaging screenplay. Well directed. Superior acting. This film is an excellent example of how the last sixty seconds of a motion picture can make you forget how good all the ones before it were. Too bad, a real shame.

The Daughter played a good part - good acting on her part

Intense at times and heartbreaking. The ending, well, I was left wanting. I won't give it away now, but I found it not satisfying. The Daughter played a good part - good acting on her part.

OK but call BS on ending

I do not know any guy who would react like that father did to his daughter. Did the guy who wrote this have kids? Also its hard to use a shotgun for that purpose, hit in head so where? I would think it would be impossible to survive a torso wound with shotgun for more than a few minutes
