I was curious to see this only because it had won best picture at the Academy Awards last year and I have found that any best picture is usually voted ‘best’ for a reason. It turns out it is an extremely well made movie. For almost the entire length of the film, (which by the way is subtitled), it is hard to tell what will happen next which is always a good sign in a script. The set up takes a large portion of the film, and as many movies do, near the end events start to get exaggerated. There is no agenda that I can remember and overall it has a good, original storyline. This is all topped off by the fact that it is the very first best picture awarded to a foreign film.
