It is open to interpretation by the viewer as it goes along, or should I say open to identification with the situation and characters. I was the poor guy in the movie. This is really a psychological drama, with a cruel twist at the end. The movie was strangely captivating and yet the viewer doesn’t know where it’s going to go next. This is not because of the setting—it’s not some high-a…
