unpredictable film about love and doubt
Verified purchase
An interesting, unpredictable film about love and doubt. And about what tragedies stay with
us to cause our behaviors to adjust with each new wrinkle in life. Mysterious and romantic,
frightening and ironic best sum up the feeling when this journey is over.

Not sure why it was release 6 years after it was made. Very beautiful scenery, not bad acting and not bad story line. Overall a good movie.

A great unpredictable mystery. Really unique.
A great throwback to the classic Hitchcock style. Great story and the pacing is relentless. Strong performances by the ensemble. Robert Culp and Ann archer power cameos are truly unique. Great seeing Connie Nielsen looking so fresh and lovely instead of tired as she is these days. Strong writing and beautifully photographed.

Satisfying piece of modern noir
A fine looking pair of actresses, Connie Nielsen (Gladiator) and Mia Kirshner (Exotica), center the plot in this modern noir of two sisters who may or may not be serial killers.
A French music professor based in New York hits the road for some soul searching and ends up in a car crash in middle America that puts him in the hospital. As he recovers, his nurse (a luminous Connie Nielsen), becomes friendly with him and invites him to her home for a meal. There we discover her troubled background - a mentally unstable younger sister (Kirshner) and a father on his deathbed (cameo by Frank Langella).
The day after the professor plays his cello for the sickly man, he returns to find him dead. He watches the funeral from afar and continues his relationship with the mysterious sisters. They convince him to take them with him on a road trip that becomes filled with increasingly bizarre behavior by the sisters and encounters with other travelers with suspect motivations.
This was a worthy thriller with some good performances, especially Kirshner as the loopy younger sister who has to wear a wig because she tears her hair out. I sympathized with the character of the professor who is exposed to some terrifying situations and yet feels compelled to care for these two women. The actor was a good choice, even as a relative unknown.

Romantic , heartfelt

This was one of my favorite movies, I thought it was going to be scary but turned out to be about incest and a man that the sisters could finally trust.
