  1. I stopped watching at the 8:28 mark. Someone questioned as to why the girl kept opening her mouth before she spoke, saying it was distracting. Well, it certainly was! Not only did she simply open her mouth…it was totally WIDE open. You could drive a small truck in there. If this was to indicate a stammer it was all wrong.

  2. The half of this film was good. The other half, when those hands appeared and sisters began to dance, the film ended there, only the art remained… Consistency and logic was gone… Otherwise, the camera focus, acting and sound effects were great.
