An admirable film debut by director Mona Fastvold who mostly did music videos prior to this film project.  The cast of characters all churned out convincing portrayals and there are tension-building scenes worth checking out but there is something amiss in the flow of the story itself. However,  the impressive scenery and intense camera work by Zack Galler somehow makes up where the script left off.  Also quite noticeable was the commendable musical scoring by Kato Adland and Zack Galler. Mystifying and a mind-boggling at times,  do check out this film and find out about the characters of Kaia, Andrew, Ira and Christine and how the interactions and the events that unfold create an impact for each of the characters.

This movie is sort of a psycho-thriller that has some quite intense scenes  at times disturbing, such as that scene where Chris, Kaia's sister was seen sleepwalking and then masturbating in her sister's bedroom.  There are things in the film that quite confused me, especially with the sleepwalking of Chris and then the lead characters getting distressed when she disappears. Why didn't they find ways to ensure that she can't wander just about anywhere?  The disappearance was seen as the climax of the story with Kaia and Andrew's relationship gone berserk and Ira was given a good beating by Andrew.  There are issues unresolved by the conclusion of the film, however,  where there may be lapses in the screenplay it quite made up in terms of commendable performances by Witt and Abbott. Cinematography was also impressive, do check this out!
